Zayn (19) been targeted recently by so-called fans, regarding his relationship with singer Perrie Edwards, from the girl band Little Mix, who also came to prominence on the UK “X Factor.”
His last words on the micro-blogging site read: “fans that have something nice to say can tweet me on the one direction account”.
As you may imagine, some pre-pubescent girls are pretty upset about Zayn’s departure from Twitter, but some of the online reaction has shown some deep thinking into the downside of the cult of celebrity. @Higginator tweeted: “This is a lesson to us all guys. This whole Zayn thing got out of hand and it’s our fault.” @iStylatorArmy offered: “Only 29 days to get Zayn back on twitter, or his account will be completely deleted and i’ll cry…” And @1DWithAPassion said: ” Two of Niall’s friends passed away. Cher was booed off stage and had urine thrown at her. Zayn deleted his twitter. Such a terrible week.”
However, celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton is not sorry to see him go. In fact, he’s gloating: Perez tweeted: “One Direction’s Zayn Malik DELETES His Twitter! Called it! I said he’d be the first to leave 1D! This is the beginning!”
Bear in mind, though, this is the man who once rated One Direction’s chances of making it in America as “zero”, so that might show you how much he knows.
