One Direction still pulls a lot of water in this town. This town being London, that is. And it became apparent after Harry Styles’ home was vandalized with the most offensive word one can use to refer to a woman. Said word is also a popular agender insult in Britain. The Twitter response was swift as it was complete. Fans tweeted using the hashtag #CanYallRespectHarry to show solidarity.
One Direction may have split up for good earlier this year months after losing fifth member Zayn. You may have heard of him, he’s since gone solo. However, Styles has been in the news lately as he cut off his man bun and had his vacation pics leaked. Those who speculated that One Direction might fade away have clearly underestimated the rabidity of their fanbase. People are showing up at funerals asking for selfies. No wonder he incites such passion as to lead to vandalism.
