Directioners are boycotting 50 Shades of Grey in the name of charity.

We’ve warned you about how powerful One Direction’s fans are. Besides fangirling and just being amazing little sasspots, they also raise money and awareness for charity.

Now the fans are urging people to boycott the new and largely anticipated 50 Shades of Grey. Why’s that, you ask? To raise awareness of Women’s Aid.


“This coming weekend, the poorly-written, abuse-romanticizing piece of crap known as 50 Shades of Grey is making it’s big screen debut. While it’s too late to stop the movie from being made (or the book from being written), we can all do our part to show Hollywood that this is not the kind of relationship we want to see being sold as “true love” by not going to see the movie.”

Instead of going to see the latest hollywood flick, the fans urge you to donate $5 for their ‘Girl Almighty’ charity drive in aid of Women’s Aid.

“Instead of supporting 50 Shades, take some of the money that you might have put towards a night out at the movies and support women in need by donating to the 1D Fans Give “Girl Almighty” Charity Drive. We’re making every day this week a $5 day, in the hopes that people choose to support an organization that helps women, instead of a movie that’s trying to teach them that abuse is sexy.”

GIRL POWAH! We think it’s a good idea, to be honest. You can click here to donate and click here for more info on the charity drives.

What do you think? Do you agree with this? Will you be donating instead of watching 50 Shades? Let’s have a chat. Tweet us @maximumpop with your thoughts.
