It was the bitch-slap heard ’round the world. Yes, a Twitter feud between Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson erupted today, showing the world that there really is some bad blood between the former bandmates after Malik’s abrupt departure from the band in March. Of course, Louis has always been a problematic little bitch, so it’s not surprising that he’s causing the drama. Tomlinson started the back-and-forth by making fun of a heavily filtered photo that producer Naughty Boy tweeted of himself with Malik. “Remember when you were 12 and you used to think those Mac filters for your pictures were cool haha ! Some people still do HA!” wrote Tomlinson.
“Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?” Zayn quickly responded, causing Directioners to gasp in apoplexy.
Zayn has since deleted the tweet, but Naughty Boy retweeted it, then added: “And some people can’t even sing.. but who’s complaining when there’s auto tune eh,” Naughty Boy wrote.
“Jesus forgot you were such an in demand producer …. How does it feel to be riding on the back of someone else’s career?” Louis shot back.
“Yeah how does it feel mate? You’ve been doing that for the last five years… I’ve got Emeli Sande and Sam (Smith) on my CV,” the producer replied.
“Good for you, well done !!” Tomlinson tweeted. “I think we’ve done alright in terms of sales and I’ve happened to write on most. Keep trying!”
Via Daily News:
It’s not the first time that Tomlinson and Naughty Boy have squared off: the teen heart-throb called his producing nemesis “inconsiderate” and worse in March for tweeting that he “saved” Malik from being a boy bander.
The newest social media spat comes not long after Malik deleted all references to One Direction from his Twitter account, prompting an outcry from fans.
