One Direction Insult Van Halen, Somehow

One Direction insulted Van Halen, according to a tweet from the bassist of the hard rock band, Wolfgang Van Halen.

21-year-old Wolfgang, son of legendary rocker Eddie Van Halen, took to his Twitter account to let fans know the meticulously coiffed boy band had bad-mouthed his own group. Because nothing screams rock ‘n roll like complaining on Twitter.

Writing on the social media site, the bassist revealed how One Direction insulted Van Halen in a hotel in Birmingham, England:

“Fun fact: Was just insulted by that s**tty boy band #OneDirection in the lobby of our hotel this morning! Greetings Birmingham!”

Wolfgang spared us further details of One Direction’s alleged zingers – a shame, considering how hard it is to imagine the squeaky-clean, ultra-dull boy band in mud-slinging mode.

As if to ram the point home, Wolfgang jumped back on Twitter shortly after his original tweet to insist:

“No joke. That ACTUALLY happened. That group of kids in #OneDirection were dickheads to @IIEROCKII @GWDrums and i.”

He then followed that up with a comeback that, er, could have used some work, if I’m totally honest:

“They must call themselves that because all of their hair points #OneDirection.”

Groan. You can read Wolfgang’s full rant as it appeared on Twitter below. Do you think One Direction really did insult Van Halen, readers? Let us know in the comments.
