Directioners have been at war with Beliebers for quite some time, and now it looks like the boys themselves have joined the fight! Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson openly mocked Justin Bieber’s name change on Twitter on Feb. 18, mere days after their bandmate Niall Horan was spotted out on a date with Justin’s ex Selena Gomez!

Justin Bieber opened himself up for some light mockery when he changed his name to “Bizzle” on Instagram for a week, but who would have thought that some of the mocking would come from Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson!

Justin only changed his named to Bizzle for a week — to sound more hip-hop, of course — because a British actor and musician named “Lethal Bizzle” didn’t like sharing his name with the Canadian superstar.

However, it looks like Lethal Bizzle isn’t the only British celeb Justin has to worry about! Louis and Liam began randomly Tweeting words that rhymed with “Bizzle” on Feb. 18, which was definitely a crystal-clear diss thrown at Bieber. It’s also interesting to note that the boys’ bandmate Niall Horan was spotted out and about with Justin’s estranged ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez two days earlier on Feb. 16, on a date that was supposedly set up by Taylor Swift!

A source close to Selena told EXCLUSIVELY that “Sel & him made out a bit,” but “it wasn’t a big deal.” Flying to London for a date seems like a pretty big deal to us, and the source continued that the two will definitely be seeing each other again! Could this be Louis and Liam’s way of supporting their friend?

Yikes! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Were the boys dissing Justin? And if they were, do you think it was to support Selena and Niall? Let us know in the comments!
