One Direction have been around for eight years, but their return to celebrate on Twitter hasn't gone down well with one section of fans!
One Direction have built a legion of fans like no other over the last eight years. Directioners have proven themselves to be supremely passionate about the lads and many took to Twitter to celebrate #8YearsOfOneDirection.
The band's official Twitter account even began posting tweets again, sharing lyrics from across the group's catalogue of hits, but there was a bit of a backlash from one section of fans who weren't happy with the tweets!
Tweets from the 1D account included lyrics from songs such as 'History' and 'Best Song Ever', but they weren't enought to please some people, who claimed thae band's management were trolling them...
You and me got a whole lot of history, we could be the greatest team that the world has ever seen! #8YearsofOneDirection— One Direction (@onedirection) July 22, 2018
