The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes & Max George getting ‘sadistic’ death threats from One Direction & Zayn Malik fans!


Nathan Sykes has admitted that he’s been getting some pretty nasty and evil death threats from One Direction fans.

The Wanted singer has mostly stayed out of the feud that has been raging between his boyband and the X Factor stars but after his pal Max George challenged Zayn Malik to a boxing match and claimed he could beat the 1D boys in a sing off, it appears that Directioners are livid with anyone connected to the group.

Max claimed recently that 1D ‘did a runner’ when he asked if they could meet face to face after a US gig and yesterday he admitted that he bears a huge grudge against Zayn after he upset his gran with some derogatory comments.

Sykes is trying his best to stay out of the war of words but he told The Sun that he’s been getting hate mail all the same.

The 20-year-old said:

“What’s surprising is I get death threats and I keep out of it.

“When I was having my throat surgery, I got tweets saying, ‘Hope the surgeon slits your throat while he’s at it.’”

Max hasn’t escaped unscathed either and he admitted that some of the messages he has received online have been downright ‘sadistic’.

“I’m not from the most pleasant of areas, but I can’t remember talking like some of those kids do,” the Manchester-born singer added.

“Some of them are 10-year-olds that know ways of sadistic murder.”

One Twitter user tweeted Max last night, saying:

“@MaxTheWanted go die bitch!! from croatian directioner xxxx geyyyyyyy no im not kidding i hate you 1D is the best boybend!!”

    What’s the point in sending death threats Nathan’s done nothing wrong to be honest he stayed out of it and how he’s getting death threats and To be honest I don’t know why one direction and there fans don’t say anything to the wanted or there fans and the wanted and the twfanmily do the same then it would prevent word war 3 I’m gonna support the wanted at the end of the day because I dislike one direction for certain reasons but I don’t tweet them with that so I suggest directioners do the same!

  2. lisa says:

    at the end of the day, sending death threats to anyone is pathetic. I am a 1d fan, but i don’t have anything against the wanted, most of the fans sending shit like that are probably too immature to understand the consequences of their actions

  3. Mary says:

    Hey what I know is The Wanted made fun with 1D in an interview it’s fair but i admit nobody deserves to recieve nasty and bad comments specially death threats but some 1D fans are just like having revenge because 1D cant have their own revenge…i know the wanted fans will also send death threats to someone who hates the wanted ofcourse..i like both but the wanted must admit they are wrong..sorry

  4. Maya says:

    I don’t understand,I mean I’m a directioner but I like certain songs of TW.I don’t support any of them in this feud.But,nobody likes receiving death threats.Nathan stayed out of it,but he still receives death threats.It’s not fair if you ask me.

  5. Laura says:

    I like The Wanted and One Direction. I just don’t understand why people are so nasty to The Wanted!! Nathan is such a sweet, handsome guy and he doesn’t deserve to be treated badly. I honestly think people are ***** for saying stuff like that.

  6. Linda says:

    Laura if Max would have kept his big mouth shut none of this would be going on. Max thinks too much of himself. You can’t trash someone and not expect feedback.

    • Emma says:

      Linda, I don’t know how you were raised, but fans giving “feedback” as you so plainly call it, should not consist of sending anyone death threats. That’s basically mentally unstable behaviour, actually wanting to take someone’s life. Fans that get too heavily and emotionally involved really need to take a good look at their lives… It’s not healthy… It’s actually kind of creepy.

  7. Claudia says:

    One Direction is gay and its not right for the fans to talk shit about TW.

  8. Anna-May says:

    At the end of the day you may not like something compared to someone else. However, when it comes to one person who has been through hell the past two month and the fans have done nothing to support him then it’s not on to send hate. Nathan is a caring person like all the boys. If you can’t see that then stay out of it. Just because the 1D boys are having a kick off it doesn’t mean you join in their selfish games. The TW boys are nothing but supportive to their fans and they are in the real world. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind Niall or Harry I don’t have a problem with them but the problem is the hate the other three boys have towards the TW boys. Nathan has been trying so so hard to stay out of it but in reality when they are sending replies they are just sticking up for thenselves and the fans. Just think which fanbase gets treated better and realise the true facts “Directioners”

  9. Aquiel says:

    This makes me sick. I love both 1D and TW, but for some reason other 1D fans find it necessary to trash anyone who isn’t one of the boys or a fan. It’s extremely immature and, in all honesty, it makes them look ignorant. People should be able to like who and what they want without getting punished and put down for it…

  10. Rachel says:

    WTF! Death threats that’s not right I know bout all of the feuds and things but this is out of hand. What’s nathan done to offence directioners but its kinda them that started all this 😠 no one deservs that

  11. mrs.skyes says:

    First off i’m both fan 1d& the wanted both bands are awsome but sending nathan death threat is’nt fair seem as he stayed out of it and he so sweet and innocent 1d fan need to chill out cause there is two sides to every , i mean they both a british/irish band different is the age thing

  12. Sabrina says:

    I love both bands, and it frustrates me so much that both fandoms and both bands can’t just settle this whole stupid thing. I mean, both fandoms can be pretty immature, I have to admit, but whenever a few fans do something terrible (like send death threats), it seems like everyone else blames the entire fandom. Not every single Directioner sent death threats, because most of us have respect. But everyone has to think that we’re all like that for some really stupid reason. And because of this stupid “boy band feud”, a lot of people think hat you have to choose sides, and that you can’t like both bands…and even though I love The Wanted, I have to admit that they did start most/all of this (except Nathan, he stayed out of all this), so don’t say that One Direction started anything, because they didn’t. They just didn’t want to put up with the hate from TW and most of their fans. Can’t we jus

    • Sabrina says:

      What I meant to say at the end was: Can’t we just support the bands we love without having to fight about which one is better? Now I know most of us act like this because the boys do around each other, but if we could all of a sudden stop trying to slit each others’ throats, they could maybe possibly be nicer to each other since both bands want what’s best for their fans. I don’t know. It’s just an idea…

  13. Mal says:

    Thats one reason I’ve stopped liking 1D. I hate how directioners think they can threaten anyone they like just because they like some band that has no talent. (I like Niall though) The Wanted will always be my favourite

  14. asd says:

    stop milking it!!! TW are going to be talking about 1d when they’re 90 years old!!! move on!

  15. Nathansykeslover says:

    Leave Baby Nathan alone, he has done nothing wrong and to bring up his throat surgery when he is worried your just sick !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. we all love you Nath
    Big Hugs and Kisses

  16. Summer says:

    I have nothing against 1D i like there songs and all just not them! I am a huge TW fan I’ve meet then several times and they are lovely lads. One direction did start off the comments by zayn calling max clamidya boy, but the treatment that baby nath is getting from 1D fans is wrong. In not trying to start an argument but TW are better to me and 1D fans will just have to get use to TW having so many loving fans around the world as well as famous friends that they have :D

  17. Megan says:

    now i’m a TW supporter but i don’t see the point of all of this sickness towards each other… i mean what is the whole reason behind it? why would you send death threats to someone who has done nothing wrong? you wouldn’t like it if people you don’t know started sending threats towards you about you dying, death or killing, would you??? even though you did nothing wrong you are hated for just living your life the way you want to. is that really necessary??? people who open their big gobs to something they shouldn’t get involved in, really need to grow up and either try to end the feud in a nice way or ignore it and not get involved, not start the beginning of WW3!!!!!
    now here’s the deal, i don’t care who started it but someone has to finish it before it gets any uglier

  18. julissa perez says:

    I’m on the wanteds side but I still think that both bands diserve to be here so please stop sending death threats nobody deserves them
