This article is so rude and disrespectful. It makes the writer sound as low as he is describing the “fandom”. Really? Calling the fans animals and not human? That’s the worst thing you could ever do. Honestly, adults and other people who are not in the fandom are really naive about what goes on. We are serious about what we say 0.001% of the time. Our sarcasm and jokes aren’t understood very well are they? There’s different types of fans in this world. I’m the type that stands up for my idols and my fandom in the most kind, professional, and calm ways. Some girls go through so much in their daily lives and twitter is an escape. Also, I’d like to inform you all that it’s usually the 12 year olds who cause the drama. And the percentage of 12 year olds in our fandom is 5% although people seem to judge all of us by just a few. They’re not exactly mature yet. The older fans who are 15-21 are really against bullying and death threats. We never encourage or send them. I think it’s time people start seeing the real “Directioners” the ones who have humanity and not the immature, disrespectful people who need extra parental supervision. Thank you :) have a nice day.
