Looks like Zayn Malik‘s departure from One Direction has left some bad blood between former bandmates. Louis Tomlinson and Zayn’s producer Naughty Boy exchanging insults on Twitter didn’t surprise us – the 1D boys are publicly not fans. That’s fine. Who would like a guy who pretty much stole a member of your group? But now Zayn is firing back at Louis!
Things kicked up a notch today after Louis posted a suspicious sub-tweet about Naughty Boy and Zayn. Naughty Boy quickly hit back with claims that Louis “can’t sing.” After a few back and forths, Zayn got involved, tweeting at Louis, “Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?”
Say it ain’t so! As if leaving the band wasn’t enough, now we can’t even pretend that the guys are still besties? Check out the unfolding drama below.
*Insert sobbing emoji here*
It seems like One Direction fans are one Team Tomlinson with this one, with #TomlinsonSlaysAgain trending and many 1D fans tweeting that they are unfollowing Zayn for his remarks. Some are even saying Zayn left them, and now they are leaving him. So far, about 40,000 fans have hit “unfollow.” Zayn should know better than anyone not to mess with Directioners…
Zayn says he was just defending himself, you guys…
Still, fans aren’t having it. Louis, however, has thanked fans for their overwhelming support.
