Zayn Malik's family could be in real danger. Though generally most phone and social media threats are hollow, these were especially "disgusting" according to sources for The Sun. Safaa Malik has since deleted the terrifying and perhaps credible threats.
One Direction's Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik have had a great year, a nice break, and some productive time in the studio. Now. though, as the year draws to a close, there are troubles large and small.
One Direction's Liam Payne is furious at Louis Walsh after comments Walsh made about Liam's pregnant wife Cheryl. Cheryl will not be a judge on X Factor anymore. That must be bad enough news for the young family, but Walsh was horrendously rude in comments he made about Cheryl to media when asked if Cheryl would be returning to X Factor. Teen Vogue reported Walsh's remarks.
"[Cowell] wouldn't invite Cheryl back because we have Nicole. We have Nicole and Sharon, we don't need another girl, so go and f*ck off now... No silly questions, seriously. It's not about Cheryl. Don't be stupid."

"Maybe it's about time you realise it's not all about you and shut the f**k up for once, let them speak"
"I don't think anyone really gives One Direction enough credit you know – in terms of what we were like in the studio. They think 'Here we go, another manufactured lot that don't really write their own stuff', but people would be wrong if they thought that,"

While the issue of One Direction haters is fairly trivial compared to Louis Tomlinson's mother's death at the age of only 42 after a short but painful battle with leukemia, or death threats against Zayn Malik's family, they are examples of the kinds of negative and hurtful comments that sometimes barrage Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan. The press and the public on social media can be cruel at times.
Zayn Malik just released a wonderful duet with Taylor Swift and should be out promoting the new single, but instead he is taking a step away from the spotlight according to The Sun.
One Direction fans should be especially supportive as Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, and Liam Payne each goes through some difficult times and Harry Styles and Niall Horan offer comfort.
