Zayn Malik: Racist Song Parody Under Fire, Fans Sign Petition to Remove from iTunes
A racist song parody about One Direction star Zayn Malik, called "Zayn Did 9/11," is under fire from 1D fans, who have organized a petition to get the song removed from iTunes. One Direction star Zayn Malik has been on the receiving end of some pretty hateful stuff--and this breaks our heart.
Rucka Rucka Ali, who has created many questionable parodies, released a song called "Zayn Did 9/11," to the tune of Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It."
The response from Directioners has been, as expected, out of control. They're hugely supportive and loyal to their guys and when something hateful like this happens, their outrage is understandable.
1D fans have launched a petition to get the vile song removed from iTunes, which includes lyrics such as: "Zayn is the leader of the group Al Qaedirection. He flew a plane into some buildings on September the 11th. He was 8 or 9, he trained how to fly, took a boxcutter, went onto a plane."
Head to Twitition to sign the petition, which states:
"If you weren't already aware there's a song called Zayn Did 9/11 on the itunes Store. The song goes on about how Zayn Malik of One Direction was one of the terrorists involved in the 9/11 attack clearly because of his Muslim culture.
The song is very racist and untrue. It's stereotyping Muslims by saying that they are all terrorists. It's offensive, inappropriate and not right. It is an incredibly touchy subject resulting back to 9/11 and should not be joked about. Sign this petition if you agree and think that this song should be removed from the Itunes Store."
It's also been reported that during a recent 1D concert, someone held up a sign that said "Die terrorist Zayn Malik."
