One Direction 2012: After Louis Tomlinson’s Twitter outburst and Harry Styles silence, I ask…are 1D heading for a split?
Unreality TV received this comment from a One Direction fan today and we decided that the questions and points raised in it, are probably issues that many 1D supporters would like to discuss. Have a read and tell us if you agree with your fellow Directioner in the comments section below…
I (1Dfan) wrote a detailed comment on your article “One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson slams ‘bullsh*t’ Larry Stylinson claims – insist he is NOT in a gay relationship with Harry Styles!” expressing my concern about the harm being done to Louis’ reputation.
I have a question: Is One Direction heading for a breakup?
The twitter incident was minor in the scheme of things but it really hurt Louis’ reputation and in turn affected the ticket sales for his charity event.
I think most 1D fans have the impression that Louis is generally a good-natured person, who does not take things too seriously and who is very loyal to his friends/family. I expected an official statement to be promptly issued apologizing for the incident reassuring fans that what happened was out of character and that Louis remains his kind self. An apology has not been issued and the tweets have not been deleted to date. Some fans on twitter have said that they will not buy any One Direction merchandise or support them in any way until they get an apology.
As I said in my previous comments, I think this a complete FAIL on the part of his management team and would suggest to the boys that if their representatives cannot properly handle something so minor that they immediately (TODAY) look into the possibility of changing management companies. With the recent departure of others acts from Modest Management and their mishandling of this minor situation, 1D would have grounds to discuss whether the contact be terminated or modified.
I also expected Louis’ bandmates to immediately show support for him in some way to the public. For example, tweeting support for his charity football match since it did not sell out day 1 as expected. That has not happened.
One Direction as a band, has always promoted itself as a team but I am starting to see articles about Harry Styles leaving One Direction to become a solo artist after the next tour ends. If the band members do not demonstrate their complete solidarity to the public whenever challenges arise, then outside forces will continue to try to tear them apart.
What do others think? Will One Direction survive beyond the end of the next tour? Leave your comments below…
