Let’s face it. One Direction fans are extremely passionate.
Dubbing themselves Directioners and screaming at just the sound of 1D’s music, this fandom has even led trainee musicologist Josh Haddow to study what kind of person listens to a group of young men who sing incredibly catchy tunes.
And based on his research, it appears that fans are incredibly devoted. So much so, that they’re even willing to compare Zayn Malik to a religious figure like Ghandi.
But while Directioners appear to have good intentions, don’t EVEN DARE TO ASK about a romance between Harry and Louis. These fans are so defensive they will “literally punch you in the face” if you think it’s true.
