Van Halen and One Direction have reportedly butted heads – Garrett Whitlock from Van Halen first started tweeting earlier today in anger, first saying, “Had a run in with some boy band in the hotel lobby. No worries. I can’t take an insult from someone who doesn’t even write their own tunes.”
Then, Wolfgang from Van Halen started tweeting, “Was just insulted by that shitty boy band #One Direction in the lobby of our hotel this morning! Greetings Birmingham!” He then tweeted, no doubt in response to shocked and surprised responses, “No joke. That ACTUALLY happened. That group of kids in #One Direction were dickheads to us.”
He also added a barb against their hair, tweeting, “They must call themselves that because all of their hair points in #One Direction.”
It did seem to be a chance meeting at an English hotel, but there’s no details on what either of the bands were doing there. However, until we find out One Direction’s side to this story, it would be presumptuous to jump to conclusions about what did or did not happen between the two bands. This is one of the first stories we are hearing about the band misbehaving in public, so an educated guess might lean towards Van Halen starting the dispute by saying something. However, nothing has been confirmed and Van Halen have been the only ones tweeting so far.
One Direction recently spoke about their 'naughty' behavior in school, which may have something to do with their misbehaving now.
