One Direction met by safety threat at LAX airport
One Direction were greeted by a swarm of female fans as they touched down at Los Angeles' LAX airport earlier this week.
The lads are in the U.S. to film a cameo appearance on the popular teen sitcom iCarly and were met by hundreds of excited fans as they got off the plane in California.
They were so shocked by the incredible reception that they took to social networking site Twitter to talk about the experience.
Harry Styles wrote, "Sorry that we couldn't stop at LAX guys...the US Marshall's said it wasn't safe. We all wanted to come see you .x."
Niall Horan added, "So sorry guys! US marshalls said it wasnt safe for us to come out! Thank you for comin to LAX to see us! We heard there was 600 of u! Love u. Lets go USA , this is soooo exciting! The reception we got at LAX thank you all soo much!"
Although the release date of their iCarly episode is yet to be confirmed, the boyband's management revealed it will be shown "this spring" on Nickelodeon.
