Zayn Malik dramatically announced his new record deal yesterday, and One Direction fans have had very mixed responses. While one contingent of fans is totally happy that the Bradford Bad Boy is finally able to get to make the music he wants to make, other Directioners are kind of upset that he went against his word.

When he first left the group, he said that he just wanted to be a normal 22 year old, and his latest move makes it clear that he wants to be anything but normal. Simon Cowell and Naughty Boy have already given their two cents about the situation, and 1D fans can’t keep quiet either.
