It has been reported that One Direction singer Zayn Malik missed out on a date with a girl because she was bullied by One Direction fans. Zayn was set to meet up with 20 year old Australian Anna Crotti but she cancelled the date due to fears of being attacked.
Crotti explained to MTV News, "A security guard came up to me. I thought I was in trouble but he said, 'The lads want your number'. I got a text later saying hello. I asked who it was and it was Zayn. We were communicating (via text) throughout the whole day pretty much and he asked if I would like to catch up for drinks. I said I was free a bit later."
She added, "By the end of the day, it got a bit too scary. Random girls were abusing me on Facebook. Girls were calling the radio station and giving me s**t. Mothers even called me in tears, demanding to know if I knew where One Direction were because their daughters wanted to meet them.
Anna continued, "I didn't even want to walk home. It was so intense. I message Zayn and said, 'Maybe it's not a good idea we meet up. It was just a bit too full on."
It is not the first time that a girl has been abused by One Direction fans. Singer Liam Payne had to come to the defence of his girlfriend Danielle Peazer, after she was abused by One Direction fans on Twitter.
