Remember when Zayn Malik called his supposed BFF Naughty Boy a ‘fat joke’ on Twitter? Well, NB is speaking out about the nasty tweet for the first time in a new interview and it’s safe to say, he’s still very salty about it!
It turns out Naughty Boy, 30, was NOT okay with Zayn Malik, 23, calling him a ‘fake joke’ on Twitter on July 13. In a new interview, Naughty Boy revealed that he was so shocked when he saw what Zayn had tweeted about him that he “thought that he had been hacked” at first! NB also took a jab at Zayn saying his tweet was super childish — see exactly what he said!
“It sounded like one of the things the little girls who send me hate would say,” NB said about Zayn’s “fat joke” tweet to Fuse.tv. “I can deal with what he said but he knows the hate I’ve had to endure for him is the bit that upset me. That’s not how I know Zayn to speak, even face to face. I definitely thought at first that he had been hacked.”
“The fat joke thing wasn’t necessary and he’s getting a lot of backlash for that because a lot of his fans don’t look like Selena Gomez. At some point as an artist you have to take responsibility for everything you say. That’s why I think Zayn did it out of anger,” Naughty Boy went on to say.
In case you missed it, Naughty Boy supposedly leaked Zayn’s ‘No Type’ music video, which set Zayn off and he tweeted this:
@NaughtyBoyMusic you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you .
