Zayn's incredible fans have successfully managed to get Spotify to take a disgusting and racist song about the singer off their streaming platform.
Zayn Malik fans have successfully campaigned streaming site Spotify to take an islamophobic and hateful song about the 'Like I Would' singer from its platform, showing their collective power as a fandom.
The track, titled, 'Zayn Did 9/11' was released in 2017 by an artist known as Uma Kompton and when a fan realised the song was available on the streaming service, quickly rallied support online with a hashtag, #RemoveItForZayn.
Fans voiced their disgust someone would even create such a song whilst others asked people to not tag the singer so as not to alert him to something that could cause him upset.
One fan wrote: "I am disgusted, i am angry, and I am sad. It's gross that people get away with this type of thing. Please, please report this song on Spotify and YouTube. Zayn deserves so much better."
