The singer's older sibling Doniya hits back at online bullies
One user posted a photo of Osama Bin Laden and joked that it was the cover of the 1D star’s next single, another accused Zayn of being the late al-Quaeda leader’s son.
‘clearly your obsessed with zayn! Get a life sad f*ck! He don’t even know you exist!’ Tweeted Doniya, 22.
‘haha He hates zayn but yet all his tweets r about zayn :/ he literally stalks him #sadtimes.’
Zayn – who’s half-Pakistani – has deleted his Twitter account in the past because of abuse and said last year that he hates his family getting upset by the slurs.
Doniya was shocked that much of this week’s hatred came from users claiming to be fellow Muslims – some of whom accused Zayn of ‘sinning’ by having tattoos and because he’ll be on tour with 1D through Ramadan this summer.
‘it’s his job sweetheart.. Do your mum n dad stop working in ramadan ? X,’ Tweeted Doniya.
‘if it’s a sin then it’s a sin all year round not just in Ramadan :/.’
