One Direction's new tribute band "Only One Direction" recently called the cops on Directioners who were sending them death threats! The guys recreated 1D's Four album cover and fans are furious about it.
The guys' manager Scott Garvie opened up about the whole ordeal and told Sugarscape that the tribute band isn't taking the death threats lightly.
"We have been in contact with Police Scotland just to make them aware of what is going on and happening online and if it ever was to escalate. Over half a million Tweets have come in since 8pm last night when we put up a new promotional image and link to the Daily Record story," he said.
We can't imagine being bombarded with over 500,000 angry tweets from Directioners. We don't blame them for alerting the police!
While fans are concerned that Only One Direction is trying to steal the limelight from 1D, it turns out that that's totally not the case. The tribute band was created out of respect for the X Factor guys.
"The band have been going since March 2014 and it's really important people know we are fans of One Direction too and enjoy their music and pay to go to the concerts. Many fans have also been defending us," Scott said.
"For people who cant get One Direction tickets its an option there for them to see our band and thats how we take ourselves - not too seriously."
We love that the guys are just trying to help out fans who can't go to actual 1D shows!
