We are so hoping this is a hoax.
Yes, Directioners may sometimes go to extremes to get 1D's attention, but this just isn't cool.
Multiple reports, including NY Daily News, say that Twitter user @illumivato was attempting to get the band to follow her on August 29, threatening to kill her dog if it didn't happen.
She asked for a follow, saying, "or I'll break my dog's neck."
Later, she posted a pic of a dog pinned down, with her hand around its neck.
She later wrote to Liam Payne, "I love you. Follow me. My dog has just died," with a pic of her crying and holding the dog.
Some are noting that her disgusting attempts to get attention are completely a hoax, as the pic of a girl crying and holding her dog existed online before she posted it.
The fan has also posted disturbing pics of animals in a blender and a gun pointed at a dog.
Her account has since been suspended.
