Things got heated between Louis and Zayn on Twitter, May 6…and now the fans got involved. Following Zayn’s Twitter feud with Louis Tomlinson, 23, on May 6, Directioners have gotten the hashtag #IstighfarZayn trending on Twitter, (Istighfar means asking Allah for forgiveness ).
It all started when Liam joked on Instagram that he’d found a “ new fifth member ” for 1D some times ago, and Zayn’s pal, Naughty Boy,
uploaded a photo of himself and the 22-year- old to Twitter with the caption, “Replace this.”
Taking note of the filtered photo, Louis took to his own Twitter to bash the producer and wrote, “Remember
when you were 12 and you used to think those Mac filters for your pictures were cool haha ! Some people still do HA!”
While Zayn has stayed out of Louis and Naughty Boy’s feuds before, he wasn’t going to let this one go just like that. Tweeting directly at his former friend, he commented, “remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?”
This led to an uproar vetween the two and the back-and-forth didn’t end there, though, with Naughty Boy blasting Louis by claiming he “can’t even sing,” and the newly-single 23-
year-old retorting that the producer has had to ride Zayn’s career in order to become relevant. The fans too didnt seat there to watch, but got involved in support of Louis. This in a way meant to cut off Zayn forever from 1D and let him lead a “Normal Life” as he requested.
Zayn Malik Claims He Was Defending Himself In One Direction Twitter Feud After keeping quiet for almost 24 hours, both Zayn and Louis returned to social media to
make new statements about the situation, thanking their fans in the process.
“Don’t know why I’m being attacked for defending my self, people got it twisted! I love my fans ?! Every single one of you x,” Zayn wrote.
Unlike his old band mate, Louis didn’t direct the situation directly, but did gush over the
support he and 1D has received.
“Our fans support really has been a different class ! Huge love to you guys !!,” he tweeted.
Was the feud justified?
And do the Directioners need to cut off Zayn? To you Spreadzoners, you decide
