Liam Payne laughs off fat jibes with jokey Instagram snap

One Direction singer Liam Payne has laughed off jibes about his weight after online pictures of him topless became the target for cruel comments.

A number of pictures of Payne enjoying a holiday with his girlfriend have surfaced online, including several of the singer showing off his torso on board a yacht.

However, some online critics have remarked the pop heartthrob could do with shedding some weight, but Payne has shrugged off the sharp words by mocking the trolls with an Instagram.com picture.

In the snap, the singer poses with a stuffed shirt to exaggerate his waistline, and sarcastically writes in the caption, "I mean OH MY GOD I'm just so fat these days I think I need help! quick someone take the cookie jar."
