One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles sent One Direction fans into a real tail spin, when band mate Niall Horan posted a selfie on Instagram. Niall posted a close up of his face with his tongue sticking out, a surprised look on his face, and with the caption “Oi Oi” attached to the picture. Cheeky Harry chipped in by making a comment, asking his pal a very naughty question that was loaded with sexual innuendo.
Yahoo! Celebrity report that Harry commented, “Can I sit on your Face?”
After making his comment, Harry must have realized that he had been rude, as he followed up his comment a few minutes later with a one word comment, “Please.”
The Mirror reports that One Direction fans went into meltdown when they saw Harry’s jibe. Yahoo! Celebrity points out that Harry is notoriously quiet on social media. Harry’s Instagram account is used only to post black and white photographs, and on Twitter, Harry is much more likely to tweet a single word or a little riddle than anything controversial or rude.
For example, on New Year’s Day, Harry’s tweet to his fans was a masterpiece of stating the obvious when he said simply “It’s 2015.” Almost unbelievably, those two words were re-tweeted over 350k times and Favorited 375k times. Enigmatic to say the least.
As one-fifth of One Direction, Harry Styles is all too aware that privacy is at a premium. Harry and band mates Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne face huge crowds everywhere they go, and their every word on social media is scrutinized by millions of people.
Given Harry’s previous history on social media, fans were shocked by the comment. One fan simply wrote, “OMG @harrystyles”, while another asked, “Did Harry really post that comment??” Because the comment is so out of character, it has led people to question whether Harry’s Instagram account has been hacked.
Of course, fans immediately took screenshots and shared them on Twitter, causing another social media storm. To date, Niall’s photograph has over 1.1 million likes.
Meanwhile, Harry is back in the UK after a flying visit to L.A. over the weekend. His arrival in L.A. coincided with Kendall Jenner’s arrival back from vacation in Dubai. The two passed through the airport terminal at the same time, fueling speculation that the two might be rekindling their romance.
Harry and his band mates are back at work today, rehearsing for their “Back on the Road Again” tour which kicks off in Australia next month.
