The clip above aired Thursday night on The Daily Show, a relatively innocuous joke about the fanaticism of a vocal group of fans of the boy band. Fans, however, took it as an insult against One Direction member Zayn Malik - who is of Pakistani descent. By Friday, angry fans had hashtags globally trending on Twitter:



Not seen here? #ZaynDefenseSquad, #ZayneSavesNotKills, and other smaller hashtags throughout the day - which our friends at Know Your Meme have kindly gathered up! Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that over 114,000 tweets have been tallied under the popular hashtags.

The moral of the story, as always, is to never underestimate the power of teenage girls on social media.

As long as there has been One Direction, there have been devoted dads dragged along to stadiums full of screaming tweens. Their expressions say it all, as evidenced by these photos that Angelina Castillo took at a recent concert in Nashville.

At last night's BRIT Awards, One Direction won two awards, including the BRITs Global Success award. Harry Styles wasn't up on stage accept the award though...

... because he was in the bathroom taking a leak. Cue Harry Styles running back to the stage and ascending to his second form: Hurry Styles!

And thus, Harry entered himself into a long-running line of running memes that keep on giving (Prince Charles and Chubby Bubbles, we're looking at you).

In the... also pink corner, we have commenter 'Jilianlovesthebeibs.' Proud Directioner and Belieber.

Dead Parrot took their Youtube comment slapfight in the comments section One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" and turned it into the dark, gritty mafioso drama script it was always meant to be.
