Little Mix Deem Harry Styles Left-Swipe Material, Enraging Directioners
While visiting Capital FM on May 1, the band played a game called Tinder Tales. They were given a list of stars, then tasked with deciding whether they'd swipe left or swipe right if they saw each one's dating profile. (In case you aren't familiar with Tinder, swiping right on a profile signals that you're open to a match, while swiping left means you aren't interested.)
When Harry Styles' name came up, Jesy Nelson was the first to speak up.
"I'm going to have to go with left," she declared as Perrie Edwards (who's engaged to former One Direction member Zayn Malik), added, "Swipe left .. I've got to, yeah."
All four Little Mix members seemed in agreement, with Leigh-Anne Pinnock saying, "I would take Taylor [Swift's] advice and go left."
Unfortunately, One Direction fans were not pleased with the subtle shade. On May 3, they trended the Twitter topic "#NORESPECTFORLITTLEMIX." Many of the fans credited Zayn's relationship with Perrie as the reason behind Little Mix's success. You can check out some of the tweets below.
The internet often calls Little Mix's relationship with Zayn into question. Recently, rumors spread that the former One Direction singer is banned from Little Mix's tours. Fortunately, a spokesperson confirmed that the hearsay was just that — completely unfounded.
