One Direction fans are reeling over Zayn Malik’s Twitter exit on Tuesday. The singer deactivated his account, saying in his last tweet that he is sick of receiving rude messages from anonymous online haters. Zayn said true fans could communicate with him through the band’s group Twitter account @onedirection. But it’s not enough for some of Malik’s adoring fans. Some are launching campaigns to get him back on Twitter and others have expressed a mix of affection and outrage.
Pop singers like Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato have left and returned to Twitter in the past, so it’s not impossible that Malik could return as well.
