Did One Direction get a little shady during Throwback Thursday? The boy band superstars tried to play a game for #tbt, but ended up dissing Zayn Malik. Oh, you know that caused Directioners to freak out!
The forecast for this Throwback Thursday calls for some shade! Get ready, because One Direction may have dissed Zayn Malik, 22, with a subtle jab on Twitter. Though it seems that Harry Styles, 21, Louis Tomlinson, 23, Liam Payne, 21, and Niall Horan, 21, were having a bit of harmless fun, some fans thought they were slamming their former bandmate.

How fun! One Direction wanted to play a guessing game on Aug. 20. They posted a blurry picture from one of their many music videos on Twitter, asking, “Who can guess which video this is?” For the answer, click HERE. While some fans tried to actually guess the video, others wondered why 1D decided to crop Zayn out of the shot.
Uh-oh. Yes, the picture One Direction posted only featured Harry, Louis, Liam and Niall, even though it was taken from a video when Zayn was still in the band. While Zayn is no longer a part of the group, some Directioners wondered why 1D was trying to rewrite history.
Some were shocked, saying “omg you cut zayn,” while others asked why 1D thought it was “right to crop [the] photo.” Some fans accused the band of pretending Zayn was never a member, while others dissed the band right back, calling it a “Zayn Malik video featuring One Direction.” Yikes!
Of course, maybe Zayn is happy to not be associated with his old band. There seems to still be some bad blood over the break. While Zayn and Calvin Harris were going back and forth during their Twitter feud, Louis decided to jump in and take Calvin’s side! Yikes! Hopefully for next #tbt, the boys can throw things back to when they were all friends.

What do you think about this, HollywoodLifers? Did One Direction diss Zayn by cropping him out of the image? Or were they just trying to play a harmless game with their fans?
