Directioners have found someone new to direct their hurt and anger at: Naughty Boy. The producer recently revealed that he and Zayn Malik are working on new music together, and boy are One Direction’s fans upset about it.
Zayn Malik, 22, has reportedly confirmed that he is working on solo music with his friend, Naughty Boy, and it comes as no surprise that his One Direction fan base is taken back by the news. Unfortunately, the fans have decided to lash out at Naughty Boy about the news on Twitter, and they are holding nothing back.
Zayn Malik’s Fans Angry Over Solo Music With Naughty Boy
Yikes. The aftermath of Zayn’s departure from 1D is still going on, and, unfortunately, the fans have gone from devastated and heartbroken to full-blown rage.
Not only are they upset with Zayn for reportedly confirming that he is working on solo music just 48 hours after he told them he wanted to live a “private” life outside of the spotlight, but they are even more upset with his collaborator.
It’s no secret that Zayn has been working with Naughty Boy for quite some time, and the rapper/producer even confirmed that they’ve recorded together, but now that 1D fans know why they could not be more furious.
HollywoodLife.com has compiled just a handful of nasty, angry tweets from Directioners who feel betrayed by Zayn below. Also included are quite a few tweets that show his fans bashing Naughty Boy for “convincing” Zayn to quit 1D and go solo. Ouch.

please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks that if zayn didn’t meet naughty boy he could have still stayed in the band — we love you zayn! (@17blackstyIes) March 27, 2015
So Zayn quit one direction & announced a solo career in less than 48 hours, I have no words.

but if zayn’s looking to release solo music the reason for him leaving the boys to have ‘a normal life’ is completely invalid i’m confused — ruth loves zayn (@addictof1d) March 27, 2015
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — Do you think Zayn’s fans have a reason to be upset with him? Do you think they’ll support him if he goes solo? Comment below with your thoughts.
