The Vamps Diss Zayn Malik & One Direction — Fans Outraged Over Joke

Sat, April 4, 2015 11:58am EDT by 8 Comments

British band The Vamps decided to have some fun by pranking 1D fans, claiming Zayn Malik crossed over into Vamps territory. However, Directioners were not laughing at the joke, and they let the band know it!

Zayn Malik, 22, has left One Direction but don’t think he’s going to be hitting the stage with another band. Fellow British boy band The Vamps jokingly tweeted that Zayn was hanging out with them during rehearsal, and Directioners did not find the tweet funny. The pain of Zayn’s departure is still strong, so outrage from One Direction fans over this joke is totally understandable.

It was a little too late for an April Fool’s joke, but The Vamps didn’t seem to care. The band posted a tweet on April 3 and tagged Zayn in the picture. That wasn’t the best idea.

The hearts of millions of Directioners almost stopped beating as fans thought Zayn had somehow  joined up with the British pop group. Upon closer inspection, the scruffy, unshaven person in the center of picture was not Zayn. It was actually The Vamps’ manager, Joe O’Neill.  Needless to say, One Direction fans weren’t happy.

This isn’t the first time a tweet has gotten the One Direction nation up in arms. On Mar. 30, Naughty Boy posted a link to what everyone thought was a song from Zayn’s rumored solo record.

It turned out to be a demo for an unused One Direction song, but the hoax still upset many fans. Zayn lost over 50,000 Twitter followers who felt he had betrayed them! Yikes. 

HollywoodLifers, did you find The Vamps’ joke funny? Was it totally cruel? Let us know!
