#staystrongzane is trending on Twitter tonight as One Direction fans defend singer Zayn Malik against various comments. It seems Malik received some racist abuse on Twitter, prompting his fans to rush to his defence.
Some musical acts seem to inspire rabid online devotion via Twitter. The most obvious is Justin Bieber, who dominated the early days of Twitter. Today it seems to be One Direction who capture all the attention.
Meanwhile, it seems all the rumours about Zayn Malik having died are just part of the regular Twitter death hoax saga. It’s nice to see that some things don’t even stop for Christmas.
