Radio receptionist "cancels date with Zayn Malik" after Facebook abuse
An Australian radio station receptionist was apparently forced to pull the plug on a date with One Direction's Zayn Malik after she was bombarded with abuse on Facebook.
The boys were appearing on Nova FM in Australia when they met 20-year-old Anna Crotti, reports the Mirror.
She helped the Brits during the day, with Harry Styles saying on air that she has "beautiful eyes" and was "very polite".
Crotti said that a security guard told her that the band wanted her number - and Zayn got in touch. She said:
"A security guard came up to me. I thought I was in trouble but he said, 'The lads want your number'. I got a text later saying hello. I asked who it was and it was Zayn. We were communicating throughout the whole day pretty much and he asked if I would like to catch up for drinks. I said I was free a bit later."
She continued however: "By the end of the day, it got a bit too scary. Random girls were abusing me on Facebook. Girls were calling the radio station and giving me s**t. Mothers even called me in tears, demanding to know if I knew where One Direction were because their daughters wanted to meet them. I didn't even want to walk home. It was so intense."
