Has this whole war between One Direction and The Wanted gone too far now?
Yesterday #RIPZaynMalik became a worldwide trending topic after fans of The Wanted started the hashtag and tried to get it trending.
They succeeded in doing so, and it wasn’t long before it could be seen worldwide, prompting millions of Directioners to wonder just what the hell was going on.
Was Zayn Malik really dead?
Of course not, but it was a very sick joke.
The bitter war between both bands goes back to last year, and was re-ignited only this week by our very own Louis Tomlinson having a sly dig at the band by saying ‘Walks Like Rihanna’ was one of his favourite songs.
Directioners weren’t too happy at seeing their very own Bradford-bad-boy be the victim of a Twitter death hoax, so they decided to get one back, and so they started #RIPMaxGeorge trending.
Again it wasn’t too long before that started trending worldwide, with both hashtags being visible by everone on Twitter.
Here at One Direction News we can confirm that neither Zayn or Max are dead.
Just in case you were wondering.
Sometimes it’s all a bit of banter between both bands, but other times it can go a little too far.
Other famous celebrities to be killed off by Twitter include Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Eddie Murphy, Rihanna and Megan Fox.
