GQ receives threatening tweets from One Direction fans over 1D covers
GQ released a series of “terrifying” tweets it received today from One Direction fans in response to its five covers of Louis, Liam, Harry, Niall and Zayn.
The covers show the boys looking suave and well-groomed, but did not go down well with Directioners.
Fans were particularly irate with Harry Styles’ cover line “he’s up all night to get lucky”, attacking the magazine for being nosy and refusing to focus on “all the other good stuff” Styles has done.
Here are some of the most terrifying tweets. NB: Use of Caps Lock is non-ironic
@BritishGQ WELL OBVIOUSLY NONE OF YOU PEOPLE HAVE EVER SLEPT WITH ANYONE BECAUSE YOURE ALL NOSEY INCONSIDERATE LOWLIFE LOSERS

@BritishGQ ok, interrogating Harry Styles about his number of sexual partners is NOT COOL. that is just invasive and RUDE.
