Anonymous asked: These "fans" have repeatedly said vile, disgustingly racist things about an actual member of 1D so this sadly doesn't surprise me in the least. 97% of people on twitter & a very large portion of the tumblr fandom are seriously racist, homophobic and misogynistic. This has got to be one of the worst fandoms because of this type of shit and it's utterly fucking pathetic.
I mean you encounter some of that in a lot of fandoms but the 1D fandom is just so LOUD and BIG and PUBLIC. And it’s really sad that very few people seem to defend Zayn about the horrendous things people say (and like you said people in the 1D fandom) but someone calls Louis annoying (along with Harry and 13 other people) and it’s like WW3. And like, Louis can be an annoying little shit to interviewers - that’s a trait a lot of the Louis stans like about him - so how can they be upset that one of those people who has to try and wrangle him thinks he’s annoying?
And it’s ridiculous that a lot of these people who are sending him homophobic death threats are people who think they can’t possibly be homophobic because they ship two cute young white boys.
THERE IS MORE AKB48/1D STUFF OMG ONGOMGOMGOMGONGOGNOGNGOGINDHIUJHDRFURJ
Okay, but like last time, when 1D took a picture with AKB48 when they were in Japan, I even said that they should talk to Hirata since she’s American and can speak English, but like she actually interviewed them and like this is so perfect I can’t. Also, she went to the interview in a jacket that says Yuko’s name on the back like of course she would, she is just precious and this just fuels my Yuko/Harry crackship negl.
I’m not even sure how to even deal with the fact that 1D aren’t just talking with a member of AKB48 (and one of my favorites, even), but they are actually talking about AKB48. Like they said they saw Koisuru Fortune Cookie and they did the dance and they even did their own mini Janken Tournament (and Louis saying, “so you win a record deal by playing rock paper scissors??????” is the most wonderful and hilarious and perfect response to the weird yet amazing and beautiful world that is AKB48, like even if it’s technically incorrect, it’s actually spot on, I dislike Louis slightly less right now). And Liam “I’m actually a member of AKB48” like of course you are, you’d fit right in, someone please make an English version of Hasute to Wasute for this dumb boy to sing because it is his theme song and I’d probably die from cuteness. Him and Harry dueting on it, maybe, Harry’s not even that stupid but Harry is the most AKB48 of all of them, I’m pretty sure he’s secretly a Kenkyuusei.
But like 1D going along with AKB48 stuff and finding it fun and interesting and not mocking it and getting along well with Hirata ugh just I am so full of fangirl feelings rn, I need to be watching this video over and over again until I fall over.
I’ll never forget the 5-7 day full blown meltdown I had after I saw this for the first time. You got peaceful yet half upright Louis Tomlinson, practically sleeping with one eye open. You got overly trusting Harry “I Love Lying On The Ground” Styles flopped back and open to the world. THEN YOU GOT ZAYN MALIK CURLED AROUND HIS LUGGAGE WITH LIAM PAYNE AT HIS BACK. LIAM TAKES THE OUTSIDE POSITION, THE SPACE CLOSEST TO POSSIBLE DANGERS, AND HE KEEPS ZAYN SAFE. LIAM PROTECTS ZAYN FROM EVERYTHING WITH HIS BODY AS A SHIELD, LIKE A SOLDIER IN A TRENCH. LIAM WATCHES OVER ZAYN EVEN IN SLUMBER. BURY ME IN IT.
