Rihanna may have forgiven Chris Brown, but it seems One Direction fans aren’t ready to give him another chance just yet.

Boybander Zayn Malik is facing backlash after tweeting his love for the R&B’s star’s new song, “Don’t Judge Me.”

Malik confessed his adoration for the tune on his Twitter, writing, “Don’t judge me, big tune from Chris Brown love that song ATM! :)”

But his fans aren’t impressed with his taste in music

“@zaynmalik No, definitely judging you,” wrote one fan. “How about you abandon Chris Brown & listen to more Frank Ocean.”

Another tweeted: “@zaynmalik Chris Brown makes me realize that no matter how much I mess up, I’ll be forgiven if i dye my hair blonde and get 100 tattoos.”

Malik, 19, has previously spoken about being a fan of Brown, 23 — who plead guilty to physically assaulting his on-and-off girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. In fact, the One Direction singer has even covered his hit, “With You,” in the past.

Thiugh Malik hasn’t addressed the haters, he has continued to use his Twitter page to give updates on the band’s new music video, which is currently being shot in Paris.
