Post-One Direction Zayn Malik Is a Mean Girl: See His Twitter Feuds in GIFs
Zayn Malik, you can’t sit with us.
The Brit singer saddened us when he announced his departure from One Direction in March, but maybe we should be saying, “Good riddance?”
Zayn has become such a mean girl in recent months that his Twitter profile reads like a digital burn book. In case you haven’t followed his social media passive-aggressivity of late, here’s a recap.
The Twitter-hating began in May when One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson feuded with Zayn’s producer Naughty Boy. Zayn waded in to tell Louis, “Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?”
A couple months later, Zayn turned against Naughty Boy, even making fun of Naughty’s weight: “You fat joke. Stop pretending we’re friends. No one knows you.”
In August, he threw shade toward his ex-fiancée, Perrie Edwards, and her band, Little Mix, by declaring a Fifth Harmony song better than a Little Mix work.
And just this week, Zayn retweeted an image implying Taylor Swift took her music off Spotify because she wanted more money. Taylor’s current boyfriend, Calvin Harris, contended that she’s more interested in helping out less-successful musicians.
“I suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out,” Zayn wrote in a tweet to him.
Lesser websites might adapt a Regina George quote in reference to the 22-year-old’s gestating solo career: Stop trying to make Zayn happen. Zayn’s not going to happen.
