A young girl who threw water on Niall Horan's electric guitar has received death threats.

Niall's bandmate Louis Tomlinson had been throwing water around the stage during a concert in Belfast last week and when the young girl and her pals joined in, some of her water accidentally landed on Niall's guitar, causing damage.

Her mother told Joe.ie: ''Louis had started throwing water around her and her friends and she as well as others had took this to be a game and threw some back.

''My daughter and I want all this to stop because she loves 1D so much she wants Niall and the rest of the band to know that this has been blew out of proportion and she would never in her wildest dreams want to hurt any of them.''

The hashtag CanYouRespectNiall quickly started trending after Niall's guitar stopped working and he stormed to another side of the stage saying ''Ow, things hurt when you throw them at people, alright? Ugh.''.
