1D has had a hard time taking the heat of social media lately.
The group’s member Zayn Malik has checked out of Twitter, leaving fans interested in his 140 character thoughts in the lurk. In brief, the reason for hitting the Twitter off button is because people are jerks and he doesn’t want to deal with it anymore.
It really must be tough to have 5 million followers…
Before checking out, Malik – previously known as @zaynmalik on the site – left followers with a final thought, to hopefully drive his frustration home.
“The reason i don't tweet as much as i use to, is because I'm sick of all the useless opinions and hate that i get daily goodbye twitter :)” he tweeted.
If you’re worried you won’t be able to communicate with the mini Siva Kaneswaran lookalike, fear not 1D followers…
Zayn added, “My fans that have something nice to say can tweet me on the one direction account , :) x”
And if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all…
This isn’t the first time that someone close to One Direction has nixed Twitter due to fan hate, either.
New Zealand model Emma Ostilly, the girlfriend of ladykiller Harry Styles, dropped out of the tweeting game in April reportedly because of some serious “Anti-Emma” bullying. Like the delusional overprotective non-girlfriends that they are, a mob of fans lashed out at Ostilly and her rumored relationship with Harry, causing her to cancel her account.
Since the departure - as expected - with names like “zayn’ princess&queen” and “sarah styles,” fans are begging to have their 1D’er back on their feed.
