Zayn Malik’s fiancee may have just picked a fight she can’t win. Talking about the hate she gets from some Directioners in a new interview, Perrie let loose and slammed them hard. Did she go too far?
The Directioners are one of the fiercest fan bases around, and Perrie Edwards may have just made them angry. The singer, who is engaged to One Direction singer Zayn Malik, did not hold back on her thoughts regarding some 1D fans in a new interview with the Daily Mail, causing an all-out Twitterstorm.
Perrie Edwards Calls Out Directioners
Getting interviewed with her Little Mix band mates, Perrie was asked about how she deals with the haters — as Zayn’s fiancee, she clearly gets more than the rest of the group. And Perrie did not hold back:
You just learn to ignore the bad things, really, because the people who are slating you on the internet are probably massively overweight with hairy pits, smelling of B.O. Do you know what I mean? They’re doing it to make themselves feel better.
Ouch, tell us how you really feel, Perrie! To be fair, Perrie is clearly only talking about a small set of Directioners who have unfairly targeted her simply because she’s dating a 1D band member. It’s not like she’s calling all 1D’ers fat and stinky. And she’s really just making a point about cyber bullying in general. But her comments are harsh nonetheless.
Perrie Edwards’ Harsh Comments: 1D Fans React
Perrie’s statements have unsurprisingly caused Twitter to blow up with reactions. And amongst Directioners, the feelings are pretty split.
There are some fans who seemingly will never forgive Perrie:
I knew Perrie wasn’t good.. I’ve never really liked her since she started dating Zayn & it wasn’t really jealousy it was something else..

And then there are the Directioners who understand where she’s coming from:
Perrie was defending herself. if a bunch of people were sending you hate how would u react. if anything she was being too nice about it
