Zayn Malik, who has been taking Naughty Boy's side in the public feud between Louis Tomlinson and the DJ, has now dissed his new partner on Twitter.

He first posted, "@NaughtyBoyMusic you fat joke stop pretending we're friends no one knows you." and followed it with "Someone learned how to upload a video... maybe now he should learn how to use logic ha you ain't shit but a faker". The video Zayn mentions in the tweet is the leaked "No Type" music video.

While many fans were impressed with Zayne for taking a stand against Naughty Boy and finally return –fingers crossed - to One Direction, some were upset that Zayn fat-shamed the DJ. However, "fat joke" is a British slang for the American term "big joke", and the singer was assumingly referring to that, and not calling Naughty Boy fat.

Some excited fans wrote:

jenna (| 4 & 12 ‏@91floridakilous): ZAYN THIS IS THE BEST NEWS IVE EVER RECEIVED IN MY LIFE

(>人<;) (‏@Sukidayomichael): *JAWS DROP ON THE FLOOR*

DELEVINGNE ‏(@NiallNewGirl): Looks like someone regretted leaving the band, right Zayn, but it is quiet, we still accept at least I yes!!

adri ‏(@adrianaa182): Yesss. I don't even know where Naughty Boy came from in the first place.

However, before fans set themselves up for a heart-break, keep in mind that Zayn's account could have been hacked, and that he is perfectly happy with Naughty Boy's partnership. Moreover, even if he separates himself from Naughty Boy, it still doesn't mean that he would return to One Direction.rection.
