Sick One Direction Fans Sink To A New Low For Boy Band Fandom

Many One Direction fans were devastated today when heart-throb Zayn Malik announced he was quitting the band with immediate effect. Inquisitr readers will be aware that rumors were rife that One Direction were likely to be reduced to a foursome when Malik flew back from Thailand last week leaving his One Direction band-mates to continue their world tour without him.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.

    This is very disturbing!! I will admit I have had personal experience with self harm with my daughters and it wasn’t over nothing so STUPID as just being upset that a singer you like is leaving. It was from true emotional pain! Self harm is wrong, no matter the cause, BUT is more understandable considering the cause. BUT should defintiely NOT be promoted as something to do! Both my girls speak out against it now!

      Promoting self harm is hideous Joy, especially over something so trivial.

      What makes it worse for me is the fact that things like this trivialise mental illness and self harm. The damage something like this can do is incalculable.

      Well done to your girls for overcoming it and speaking out
