It was the tweet that rocked the world. We had a collective moment of silence over here at TWIST when Zayn Malik tweeted out a mean comment aimed at his musical mentor, Naughty Boy, calling him a "fat joke."
Even if the guys were fighting over an alleged music leak, it was still out of line for the former One Direction singer to pick on NB's weight – and Naughty Boy agrees. Breaking his silence about the whole ordeal, the producer told The Sun that he felt the "fat jibe" was "unnecessary."
"I can deal with what he said, but he knows the hate I've had to endure for him is the bit that upset me," he said. "Three months ago he was calling me his best friend at the Asian Awards so it's a bit sad. Krept called him and explained that I had nothing to do with [the music video leak]."
We're not entirely sure that Zayn intended to criticize NB's weight – maybe he was only referring to the size of the joke he thought the producer's career was – but it's still never okay to make fun of anybody's body or make fat-shaming comments.
