Daily Show Called Zayn Malik A Terrorist? One Direction Fans Say #TheDailyShowGoneTooFar

Posted in: , , ,

One Direction fans are not happy about a Daily Show joke, and are tweeting about it with the hashtag “#TheDailyShowGoneTooFar”. The Daily Show had listed a member of One Direction as being a terrorist.

A correspondent, Jessica Williams, said during a comedy sketch about the US air strikes on ISIS, that a new super-group of terrorists had just formed and was made up one member each from al-Qaeda, Hamas, ISIS, the Zetas drug cartel, and One Direction.

The show didn’t mention Zayn Malik, but fans of One Direction think he must be the one they're referring to since he's the only Muslim in the boy band group.



Some of the protests want to get the Daily Show “shut down,” while some of the comments were borderline threats. Others state the good that Zayn has done. They include;

Zayn is one of the reasons I'm still here today. Slandering him is despicable. People disgust me. #ZaynDefenseSquad

i hope the daily show got suspended in a few hours may them burn in hell 😊🔪 #TheDailyShowGoneTooFar

People like that should die #sorrynotsorry #TheDailyShowGoneTooFar

WHY WOULD YOU SAY HE IS A TERRORIST? ZAYN IS ONE OF THE BEST PERSONS IN THE WORLD. #thedailyshowgonetoofar

if you called him a terrorist, i suggest you take 8381 steps back before i actually kill you

joking about zayn bein a terrorist is never ever funny so better ready yourself bc death threats are coming for you #thedailyshowgonetoofar

YOU CALL IT A JOKE A JOKE BUT NO ONE'S LAUGHING #TheDailyShowGoneTooFar

“I am so disappointed with @TheDailyShow !How could them use the word ‘terrorist’ associated with #onedirection ?”

ZAYN ISNT A TERRORIST, HE IS AN ANGEL/HERO WHO SAVES LIVES AND BRING HAPPINESS TO THE WORLD #TheDailyShowGoneTooFar

THE PERSON WHO YOU CALL "TERRORIST" SAVED MORE LIVES THAT YOU EVER CAN !! #ZaynDefenseSquad

zayn could literally buy the daily show if he wanted to yet they actually have the nerve to call him a terrorist #thedailyshowgonetoofar

“I watch your show but Zayn from One Direction is very sensitive about his religion so he keeps quiet about it. Apologize.”

“@TheDailyShow why don’t you apologise for saying such racist remarks about a member of one direction.”

“I JUST FREKIN RETWEETED THE VIDEO OF THE DAILY SHOW N IM LIKE WTF CME ON THTS NOT FUNNY TO INVOLVE ONE DIRECTION IN A TERRORIST GROUP!!”

After that, users were posting up photos of Malik doing charitable acts and sponsoring donation drives.

Zayn Malik and other of the members of One Direction have not responded to the Daily Show mention or the backlash.
