Zayn Malik’s Tweet: I Was ‘Defending Myself’ In Louis & Naughty Boy Feud

Here’s Zayn’s tweet after the infamous May 6 Twitter fight:

Zayn’s not really one for speaking out on Twitter, so this is huge. One Direction fans were clearly furious with Zayn and Louis for igniting a massive beef, and it looks like Zayn just got fed up with being slammed.

Many Directioners were angry with Zayn for seemingly siding with Naughty Boy in the feud. We’re all still really emotional over Zayn’s decision to leave the band, and the fact that the boys are fighting is like a knife to our hearts. Zayn professed his love for his fans in his response tweet but is it enough? We really just need to see Louis and Zayn hug it out.

Naughty Boy and Louis once again got into an epic Twitter fight on May 6. Nasty barbs, including ones about not being able to sing and riding on the back of someone else’s career, were thrown around.

This just turned the drama between One Direction and Zayn up a notch. HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that a chance of Zayn ever returning to the band is now slim to none.

“There was always a chance that Zayn would come back to the band or at least there was an open door for that to happen in the distant future,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But now after today’s Twitter war that door is closed.”
