Zayn Malik & Louis Tomlinson’s Fans Furious Over Feud
We all knew that Zayn’s decision to leave One Direction would cause a huge rift in the boy band, and devastate teenage girls worldwide, but nobody really expected such an absolutely catastrophic response to his departure. It’s ruining lives at this point.
On May 4, Zayn retweeted a photo of himself with Naughty Boy filtered with an old-school Mac overlay… and captioned it, “replace this.” Yikes! Louis pounced on the post, calling out the “juvenile” filter — and probably the fact that Zayn was with his closest companion and collaborator since leaving the band.
Zayn then tweeted back at Louis, “@Louis_Tomlinson remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?”
Meow, Zayn! Directioners have enthusiastically jumped on Team Louis, trending #louistomlinsonslaysagain within minutes. The fans have spoken, Zayn.

Look what you’ve done, Zayn! Those teenage tears are flowing for you, buddy. It’s so sad that the One Direction boys and their former bandmate can’t keep the peace after their split. They must have grown so close in their time spent together over the last few years as a megaband; can’t they diffuse the bad blood and at least stay amicable — if not for themselves, at least for their fans?
Directioners are some of the loyalest bunch around, guys! You owe them that much, no?
HollywoodLifers, are YOU totally devastated by Zayn and Louis’ fight?
