Zayn Malik Is Losing Twitter Followers And Fans At An Insane Rate
Zayn Malik might’ve thought the fans he gained through One Direction would stay with him for a lifetime, but Twitter just proved him wrong.
When the former member of the band picked a Twitter battle with ex-bandmate Louis Tomlinson earlier today, however, his supporters were quick to hit “unfollow.”
Malik’s friend Naughty Boy, who publicly criticized Tomlinson’s reliance on autotune and musical career, is a major part of a fight that has #TOMLINSONSLAYSAGAIN trending on Twitter.
This comes just weeks after the brooding star’s decision to leave the band.
Seemingly shocked by all the comments, his Twitter followers dramatically began to unfollow him.
Comparison shots from before and after the fight show thousands of fans deciding Malik isn’t worth their time.
Zayn’s fans decided they had better things to do than support their favorite former pop star.
