Normally, a story about Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus unfollowing Perez Hilton over something he said would fill me with schadenfreudian glee. Well, actually, it still does, but here’s the thing: a couple days ago, Perez posted a video of one of those One Direction kids inviting a girl back to his room, even though he actually has a girlfriend. And because Perez exposed the dumbass as an alleged cheater, all his friends jumped ship. Go fig. IBT reports …
Perez Hilton posted a video of British boy band One Direction’s Zayn Malik, 19, allegedly asking a girl to come back to his hotel room in half an hour. Malik, however, has a girlfriend, Perrie Edwards, who was not the girl in the video.
The video was taken by a female who was staying in the same hotel as Malik. Shortly before the video was posted on the gossip site, the One Direction singer deleted his Twitter account, leaving behind five million followers.
“The reason i don’t tweet as much as i use to, is because I’m sick of all the useless opinions and hate that i get daily goodbye twitter,” he wrote.
“One Direction’s Zayn Malik DELETES His Twitter! Called it! I said he’d be the first to leave 1D! This is the beginning (sic),” Hilton tweeted after Malik deleted his account. His tweet drew backlash from One Direction fans.
You know, the weird thing is, Perez was almost right. Almost. And I never thought I would say that. If he just sat back and said, “You know what? No. The guy had a girlfriend, and he invited someone back to his room. All I did was post the video. I have every right to call people out for being assholes rather than constantly kiss their asses,” I would have sided with him. I know, weird. But instead, he just went with “People are paying attention to me! I was right! Yay!” Ugh, seriously. You were so close to getting it for once, and then you completely didn’t.
UPDATE: Zayn Malik is back on Twitter after a mere twenty-four hour break.
