Yes, that is the sound of millions of Directioner’s hearts breaking across the world.
Despite singing together and being the best of friends for five years, things seem to be going sour between Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik after Louis’ latest feud with Naughty Boy on Twitter. Since the release of that demo on Soundcloud, the two have clashed heads more than once, but this time Louis’ ex-bandmate stepped in and surprised a lot of fans with his response. It all started with Naughty Boy posting a picture of him and Zayn together, and in typical Tomlinson fashion, it didn’t take long for his sassy response to appear.
@NaughtyBoyMusic Jesus forgot you were such an in demand producer …. How does it feel to be riding on the back of someone else’s career ?

In a move that has divided Directioners’ opinions, Zayn responded with a harsh condemnation of Louis’ responses:
@Louis_Tomlinson remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine ?

This was the moment when we all fell out of our chairs and curled up in a ball on the floor.
Despite the silence from the other three members, fans went into a frenzy tweeting support to Louis, even managing to get #LOUISTOMLINSONSLAYSAGAIN trending. It also sparked a wave of unfollows for Zayn, resulting in the following tweets from both camps.
Our fans support really has been a different class ! Huge love to you guys !!

Can’t the boys just all get along and stop the fighting? Hopefully it all settles down soon and we can go back to the golden days of the Take Me Home Tour. The fans need it.
