'She only listens to circus music': One Direction fans slam Karine Jean-Pierre for comment
PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE, WASHINGTON, DC: Niall Horan is scheduled to play at the White House on St Patrick's Day, but Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre admitted she didn't know much about the former One Direction member when she announced the news. Jean-Pierre was certainly not allowed to get away by the Directioners for not having heard of the British band.
Jean-Pierre revealed the news of Horan's performance during a news conference on Thursday, March 16. She said, "Niall is a multiplatform singer-songwriter who toured the globe including with One Direction. I'm going to keep my comments to myself on One Direction. I don't know who they are sorry. Many of you, I'm sure, do." Jean-Pierre admitted that while not being a fan of One Direction, she was aware that a few members of the White House press crew were genuinely anticipating Horan's upcoming performance.

One Direction, popularly knwon as 1D, is an English-Irish pop boy band that formerly consisted of Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Horan. The band was established in 2010 on the British reality singing competition the 'X Factor', and in 2016 they stated they will take a long break. Unfortunately, once Malik departed the band in 2015, the band appeared to have eventually parted ways.
'That administration hasn't heard of ANY direction'
Jean-Pierre's ignorance of One Direction certainly hurt the feelings of the Directioners as one person tweeted, "Press Secretary should do their research and not admit things." Another surprised person stated, "How does she not know who One Direction is?" A third sarcastically wrote, "To be fair that administration hasn't heard of ANY direction." Another person added, "Not diverse enough for her to know I guess." Further a fan slammed her saying, "She only listens to circus music."

'It's an honour to be invited and represent my country'
Jean-Pierre's tweet stated that the White House staff's music lovers are overjoyed that Horan will perform on St Patrick's Day. She wrote, "It doesn't get better than this! I think I speak for all the music lovers in the Biden-Harris Administration when I say we cannot wait to welcome @NiallOfficial to the White House tomorrow for a special performance to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!"
It’s an honour to be invited and represent my country. Looking forward to performing and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at the White House tomorrow 🇮🇪☘️🇺🇸 https://t.co/iGODUCH4f2— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) March 16, 2023
Horan replied, "It's an honour to be invited and represent my country. Looking forward to performing and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at the White House tomorrow." In keeping with the custom of Irish politicians visiting the White House to present shamrocks to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, they will also have a meeting with Ireland Prime Minister Leo Varadkar on Friday, March 17 during the ceremony. The tradition began in 1952 when John Hearne, the Irish ambassador to the United States, sent President Harry S Truman a box of shamrocks.
