Woah. During a One Direction concert in Mexico, a fan threw a cardboard cutout of former member Zayn Malik onto the stage– and Harry Styles then kicked it off! Watch the insane video!
OMG, shade. At One Direction‘s concert in Mexico City on Nov. 26, one fan thought it would be a cute idea to present the boys with a cardboard cutout of Zayn Malik, 22, who left the band back in March. Not into the idea? Harry Styles, who was so against Zayn’s cardboard replica joining the group on stage that he actually kicked it off back into the crowd– and the whole thing is on video! See for yourself!
Okay, so this fan-captured video is insane. We don’t see the moment that the Zayn cutout is thrown onto the stage, however, we do very clearly see Harry knock it back into the crowd, using his foot. Oh, and even crazier, once Harry has done the deed, Louis Tomlinson, 23, gives Harry a big round of applause! (Yes, Larry shippers, permission to freak out.)
The Zayn-kicking is just the latest in a series of shade, which has been tossed back and forth between Zayn and the boys. First of all, when One D dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Nov. 18, Ellen DeGeneres asked the guys about Zayn, naturally, and Harry wasted no time spilling the tea on the awkwardness. “You could cut the tension in here with a knife,” he said.
Of course, that diss came after Zayn did a lengthy interview with Entertainment Weekly, in which he literally said that he isn’t a fan of One D’s music. It’s “not music that I would listen to,” he told the mag, of his former band’s tunes. Yeah, yikes.
What do you think of the video, HollywoodLifers? Was Harry throwing shade at Zayn, or are we reading too much into it?
