so we all knew Zayn would start speaking his mind and saying whatever came to his head the moment he left Modest!, but who was expecting him to be so sassy and active on Twitter?
It started when last week Little Mix low key dissed Zayn at a Meet & Greet. In that moment I was sure Zayn wouldn’t stay put without getting back at them.
A few days ago, Zayn came across one of those “retweet for this fav for that” kind of tweets. As you can see in the screenshot above, the retweets were for Fifth Harmony and the favorites for Little Mix. Zayn retweeted it which instantly started a wild fight between Mixers and ZSquad, again.
But Little Mix aren’t the only artists Zayn wanted to diss. Yesterday, Zayn made very clear what were his thoughts on Taylor Swift which consequently lead to an agressive Twitter fight with Calvin Harris. It’s quite confusing right? I’ll explain it.
There was this tweet which kind of compared Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus regarding that fact that none of Taylor Swift’s songs are available on Spotify, suggesting she was only on the music business for the money. On the other hand, the tweet showed there a Miley Cyrus quote where she said she didn’t care wether people bought her music or not, what she cared about was the music she made and and if people enjoyed it.
Zayn retweeted that tweet, obviously meaning that he disapproved of Taylor Swift’s attitude. Calvin Harris instantly came in defense of his girlfriend in a not-so-polite manner. Of course, Zayn doesn’t tolerate people directing at him in that way so he replied in the same way.
I, who witnessed this ugly argue live on Twitter, was kind of worried because they both seemed really angry, I bet they were mentally shooting daggers at each other, after all, before I realized they were both curing at each other.
Zayn even called Calvin “dickhead”.
Okay now at this moment I thought to myself that Zayn really needs to find his chill. I’m not saying he shouldn’t express his opinion, he has all the rights in the world to do that. But Taylor Swift is still a celebrity and has fans and people close to her who care about her and that includes her boyfriend, Calvin Harris. So what did Zayn expect? He should have known someone would get angry at him, it would be better if he had just ignored Calvin’s indirect instead of starting an argue.
Things seemed to have worked out well though. The argue ended with Calvin’s tweet saying “best of luck, genuinely. You’ve got a great voice” after Zayn had just called him dickhead. That’s why, at first, I thought Calvin was being sarcastic but the argue ended right after, I also checked on their accounts today and it seems that both parties deleted the ugly and agressive tweets to each other. Zayn undid the retweet about Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus.
To be honest, it felt kind of awkward witnessing this. Like I said, Zayn has the absolute right to share his opinion, but did he really need to get so angry over something so insignificant? I don’t really care about Calvin Harris, but Zayn seems to be very pissed at many people recently and he tends to act quite… rude when it happens. Basically, I think he overreacted a bit, but that’s just my opinion.
Who acted right from your point of view? Who acted wrong?
