The singer broke millions of hearts — five million, to be exact — earlier this week when he deleted his account. Malik said that he was tired “of all the useless opinions and hate” on the social networking site. However, it didn’t take very long for the superstar to make a triumphant return.
What was Malik’s first tweet?
The 19-year-old tweeted to his five million followers, “Sorry, I was getting some abuse on twitter but I dont want to let my fans down. So I am back!! 🙂 x.”
He added: “And thanks for all your messages of support. I really do love all you guys, your support never ceases 2 amaze me xxx.”
Malik has recently been under fire from fans and critics over his relationship with Perrie Edwards, 19, with some even claiming the couple’s romance was fake. Edwards deleted her Twitter account in May after the abuse from fans seemed too much to handle. Unlike her boyfriend, Edwards has not returned to the site.
One Direction’s Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson’s girlfriends Danielle Peaze and Eleanor Calder, respectively, have both endured their share of Twitter abuse.
This past June, Payne tweeted a series of messages in defense of Peazer, who was under attack from 1D fans after some accused the dancer of only being with Payne for the fame.
“Just as I start to like twitter again I see the nasty side of people who like to dislike somebody who makes me … Me,” the 18-year-old wrote.
He added: “”#SometimesIHateTwitter when it becomes a place to abuse people who uve never met never did anything to you but you still choose to be cruel (sic).”
