Zayne Malik has made sub-headlines around the internet today, after tweeting what appears to be a very harsh tweet to Naughty Boy, a C-list DJ with whom Malik has been collaborating in recent months.
@NaughtyBoyMusic you fat joke stop pretending we’re friends no one knows you .

The 22 year old singer-songwriter, who has the emotional intelligence of a 12 year old at the very most, has had no shortage of twitter spats since leaving One Direction.
In fact, his most famous Twitter feud was with One Direction member Louis Tomlinson, and was about how Naughty Boy is his new friend. Louis slagged him, Zayn got mad, Directioners freaked out, and the rest of us looked on in a mix of pity, impatience, and disgust.
Zayn left One Direction in March 2015, citing stress and saying “I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight”, before immediately pursuing a solo career which has yet to come to any sort of significant fruition.
While the rest of the lads are off making millions on their latest tour, whatever it’s called, Zayn has reportedly been sitting at home, trolling them all under various fake accounts. Upon realising that they each receive literally millions of tweets a day, he decided the only way to get their attention, and that of the media, was to start lashing out from his official account.
This latest attack on Naughty Boy seems to stem from the fact that the music video for their collaboration “leaked”, and nobody cared.
Zayn, since you’re such an attention seeking baby we can be pretty much guaranteed that you’re going to read this, so we’ll speak to you directly: there comes a time in every man’s life when he must admit he was wrong, and go back to his mates with his tail between his legs. Only for most of us, our friends aren’t waiting for us with contracts worth millions of pounds. So shut up and stop being such a spoilt brat.
