Let's state the facts…Directioners are NOT happy right now.
Zayn Malik just won the award for New Artist of the Year at the 2016 American Music Awards, but that's not why One Direction fans might be upset. The Bradford Bad Boy seemed to diss the band once again during his acceptance speech.
Zayn hasn't said the most positive things about his days in 1D after he left the band, and it just got worse. As the "Pillowtalk" singer went up to accept his award, the first thing he said was, "This one just has my name on it right?" Okay…OUCH! Obviously we don't know for sure, but that seems like a dig at One Direction.
The craziest part is Zayn and Niall Horan were actually caught saying hi to each other, which means there probably isn't as much bad blood between the two as the world might think!
This is a bit heartbreaking that even after saying hello to his former bestie, Zayn would still seemingly drag the band. It's amazing that he has had so much success on his own, but to start your first acceptance speech as a solo artist at the American Music Awards like that isn't cool.
But, who knows? Maybe this wasn't his real intention. What do YOU think?
