Calvin Harris, 31, and Zayn Malik, 22, don’t need to worry about taking blows at each other anymore; they need to watch out for each other’s fans! Their loyal followers flooded Twitter on August 17 after the two musicians duked it out via tweet, their reactions to the feud ranging from laughter, to disbelief, to total rage!

Listen — don’t upset fans, because they’e going to take sides in this massive Twitter war ASAP. That’s what happened on the afternoon of August 17, almost immediately after Calvin and Zayn decided to have it out with each other over perceived insults. Zayn dissed Calvin’s lady, Taylor Swift, 25, by posting an article praising Miley Cyrus, 22, and her decision to release her next album for free because she “doesn’t need the money.” It’s a stark contrast from Taylor’s decision to remove her music from streaming sites like Spotify.
Calvin flew off the handle, penning a series of tweets about how artists need money to survive and continue to make their music. This led to an all-out war between him and Zayn, who traded blows and insults — including calling each other a few childish names. The way to piss off fanbases? Talk dirty about them! Uh oh, guys.

The sides on Team Zayn and Team Calvin are pretty evenly divided on Twitter; the weight’s not leaning either way, but we’re dying to see how this one turns out. If Calvin and Zayn decide that they’re not done fighting, then things are definitely going to heat up some more! Especially when Miley and Taylor weigh in — oh God, four fandoms at once!
