AceShowbiz - %cLittle Mix% apparently throws shades at %cHarry Styles%. Playing a Tinder game while having an interview with Capital FM, the girl group says they would never swipe right if they encountered the 21-year-old singer of %cOne Direction% on the popular dating app.
In a video of the interview, Little Mix is being asked whether they would swipe right or left for some famous celebrities. The girl group chooses to swipe right if they meet some stars like %cNe-Yo% and %cJason Derulo% on Tinder. However, when being asked about Harry, they make a surprising choice.
"Oh, I'm gonna have to go to the left," band member %cJesy Nelson% immediately replies to the question. Although they are aware that the game was just "hypothetical," the other bandmates agree with Jesy's choice. "I'm going to take Taylor's advice and go left," band member %cLeigh-Anne Pinnock% adds, referring to %cTaylor Swift% who dated %cZayn Malik%'s former bandmate for a few months back in 2012.
Following the remarks, Little Mix was hit with negative comments on social media from Directioners, particularly Harry's loyal fans. A Twitter user wrote on May 3, "Lol at Little Mix for shading Harry and acting superior to him... but let's be honest, they wouldn't be anywhere if it weren't for 1d so stf."
Another fan commented on Twitter, "People are finally starting to understand little mix are stupid and dumb af because of what they said about harry."
The girl band wasn't only slammed by Directioners, but also Swifties. They defended the "Blank Space" singer as they felt that Taylor was unfairly dragged into the conversation.
