Here's What To Say To Non-Fans Who Just Don't Understand The Importance Of One Direction’s ‘Split’
Go ahead and print this out to send to all the haters.
Right, so according to the always highly reliable media world, One Direction are ‘disbanding’, which is a fancy way of saying they’re splitting without getting sued.
Of course, these rumours have been going on since the dawn of time. The band hate each other, they want to Justin Timberlake themselves the hell out of there and become solo stars. The list goes on and on.
But while the thought of 1D ending their amazing five year run is seriously upsetting (it shouldn’t be a surprise that we’re hardcore Directioners here at MTV HQ), what’s actually kind of worse is dealing with the non-fans who think it’s cool to make fun of those upset by the band’s hiatus.
When the news broke, Twitter was 50% sadness and 50% people who wouldn’t stop going on about how they predicted this and that none of the lads can sing anyway. ORIGINAL.
Thankfully, this one tweet summed things up quite perfectly…
For those who still don’t understand that you’re allowed to enjoy whatever thing you want to, and then consequently lose all chill once that thing is over, try comparing the news to these scenarios.
Imagine if Manchester United were relegated to League Two despite having won every single game of the season.
Imagine if your favourite TV show was suddenly cancelled mid-season, ending on a cliffhanger that would never be resolved.
Um, that would suck.
Imagine if you saved up for years for a Mercedes, only to be told that you could only get a Smart car.
Well, that's not ideal.
Imagine paying for a meal at Nandos, and then being told that they’re all out of Peri Peri sauce – in fact, they're discontinuing it altogether.
Come on, be reasonable.
Imagine if Topshop just stopped selling nice clothes.
EXACTLY, IT WOULD BE ILLOGICAL.
Hopefully that clears things up a bit.
And to all you dear, loyal fans of One Direction, remember that things could be worse…
At least they’re not NSYNC-ing us. That would have been unforgiveable.
