Zayn Malik is always keeping us guessing, but this time he is really leaving us hanging. The singer tweeted and then deleted his response to a controversial #BlackLivesMatter movement tweet. Zayn’s response caused him major backlash. See the pic here!
Zayn Malik, 23, has found himself at the center of some serious Twitter drama, and this time, it doesn’t involve his departure from One Direction or his on-again, off-again relationship with model, Gigi Hadid, 21. Zayn tweeted and deleted a candid response to a #BlackLivesMatter tweet involving the singer.
It all started when one Twitter user tweeted a four-way split photo of Justin Bieber, 22, Zayn, Taylor Swift, 26, and Kim Kardashian, 35, — seemingly calling out the celebs with the caption, “Meanwhile these non-black celebrities who use black culture to their benefit haven’t addressed police brutality.”

Zayn, who usually expresses himself on Twitter, responded to the outspoken comment. “Meanwhile I’m brown myself, and understand it’s nothing to do with police brutality it’s about minority’s equality,” he said in a tweet that is since deleted. But, the same user managed to snag the tweet on Tumblr, so here’s what it actually looked like:

This could be why the solo-singer deleted his tweet. As you can see, outraged fans began to question Zayn’s response, saying he should have “kept his mouth shut.” OUCH! And there were plenty more where that came from.
When that was over, round two began? After receiving criticism, Zayn then tweeted, “Love HUMANS!” The same user, as mentioned above, fired back with, “‘AllLivesMatter'” headass.”

Things simmered down after the fact, but we still haven’t heard from Z or what he exactly meant by the deleted tweet. The only word we got, or symbol, was this photo a user sent to the singer — Zayn retweeted the image.
We’re keeping a watch on this guys, so stay stayed for updates! We will keep you filled in, but until then, let us know your thoughts on the situation.
