It’s getting shady up in here! It seems as if Justin Bieber just threw major shade in Niall Horan’s direction on Twitter — but are the two just messing around?! Either way, fans got VERY defensive. See Justin’s Tweet and decide for yourselves!

As we all know, Justin Bieber, 21, and One Direction are releasing their albums on the same day, November 13. Niall Horan and his bandmates released their new song “Perfect” and Niall tweeted thanking his fans for the “amazing” response on October 16. Justin responded to Niall’s tweet, with a snarky, shady comment — and fans freaked!

This is Niall’s tweet:

And then this is Justin’s response:

Fans, clearly assuming Justin was shading Niall, immediately came to his defense:

But we know the two are just joking! “We just happen to be releasing our albums on the same day. It’s happened to us before. The press is just making a big deal out of it because its us and Justin Bieber,” Niall recently said in an interview.

Just even followed up his tweet, saying that Niall is “his dude” and he has nothing but “love” for him.

We also found out that the boys are all just playing around about their release days being the same. “Niall and Justin are betting on whose album will have a more successful release,” an insider told “Niall along with the other guys, and Justin will continue to take jabs at each other for having the same release day, but for the most part they are playing it up and having fun. Their bet includes something fun, kind of like a dare that the loser will have to do.”
