One Direction stars receive 'horrific' abuse on WhatsApp
One Direction stars Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan say they have been receiving hate messages through their phone.
The famous pair took to Twitter on Monday (August 15) to reveal that they have been getting abuse via messaging system WhatsApp.
Tomlinson said he will probably have to change his phone number as a result.
He said: "Time to change my number...Getting some disgusting stuff on what's app...Losers!"
Horan replied: "Me too mate. Horrific Some of the things people are saying."
Tomlinson then quipped: "Maybe we should challenge them to a rap battle and destroy them in 64 bars?"
This prompted Ben Winston, who has directed some One Direction videos, into plugging an upcoming rap battle TV show he's part of.
He said: "Good idea. Then we can put it on Drop the mic - new show coming to @TBSNetwork."
