One Direction members shaken after being mobbed in New York during day off

Heartthrobs One Direction were mobbed in New York City earlier today (May 27) while trying to enjoy some rare down time during their current tour.

The lads are performing across the USA on their headlining run of dates, but members Niall Horan and Liam Payne were swarmed by a large group of fans in Manhattan this afternoon as they were going about their day off.

Horan took to social networking site Twitter and wrote: "This is a complete joke. Ridic. Day off, wana chill."

His followers quickly responded with a flood of concerned messages and one of them tweeted: "It disgusts me how some 'fans' treat you guys. Makes me upset to be a fan :'( Honestly we're not all like this. Much love xx"

Liam Payne also shared his views on the stressful experience and added: "That wasn't even funny."
