One Direction Fans On Twitter Are Saying Insanely Racist Things About Lorde’s Boyfriend

“Come back to us when your boyfriend doesn’t look like PSY gone wrong.”

1. Last week Tyler, The Creator posted on his Instagram this tabloid photo of Lorde and her 24-year-old boyfriend James Lowe at the beach.

2. The singer responded to Tyler, The Creator’s post asking him if it was supposed to get a rise out of her.

3. And while Lorde didn’t engage with him over the photo of her at the beach with Lowe, teenagers on Twitter did.

4. One Direction fans are claiming that Lorde called Justin Bieber and members of One Direction ugly and are attacking Lorde and her boyfriend over it.

Lorde is full of B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T calling One Direction and Justin Beiber ugly… like her boyfriend is better… dumb ass

5. Oddly enough, though, there is no evidence that Lorde ever called Bieber or One Direction ugly, they just seemed to come up with it on their own.

Lorde: "All of One Direction are ugly." Come back to us when your boyfriend doesn't look like PSY gone wrong.

8. According to Jezebel’s Lindy West, not all of the tweets mention Lowe’s race explicitly, but are still pretty offensive.


When couples like Lorde and Lowe violate that tacit social contract (by, you know, just liking each other a lot while being different amounts of “hot”), the response is usually swift, bewildered, and thick with disgust.

Even the tweets that don’t specifically mention Lowe’s race, I suspect, are at least partially driven by our culture’s nasty stereotyping of Asian men as unsexy and sexless.

9. They also don’t seem to be slowing down at all.

Lorde and her boyfriend are the weirdest looking couple ever like what's going on there

23. Lorde never called Justin Bieber or One Direction ugly, but she has been critical of the pop stars. She has called One Direction overrated before and said this about Justin Bieber:
