The Wanted's Max George on Zayn Malik Twitter feud: "I'm not sure what his problem is"

The Wanted have spoken publicly about their Twitter feud with One Direction.

The two British boybands were recently embroiled in a tit for tat battle on the social networking website, with One Direction's Zayn Malik and The Wanted's Max George heavily involved.

Malik later called George "chlamydia boy" and speaking to Channel 955, the Wanted star said that he doesn't know why the One Direction man has gone on the offensive. He said:

"I'm not sure what his problem is to be honest. It started off that I thought we were just having a bit of banter, but he seemed to get a bit serious. I tried to palm it off as being friendly again, but you can only take so many insults and eventually I just said, 'Alright listen - if you've got a problem, come and see me in New york when we're there doing a gig together and we'll sort it out'."

Speaking about Zayn Malik's "chlamydia boy" jibe, bandmate Jay McGuiness added: "I don't think it's based on any fact. It's like when kids in the playground go 'Poo Breath!' - rarely has that kid actually eaten faeces. I think he was just taking a stab in the dark."

George chimed in: "I think he's probably just finished sex ed so he's like 'Yeah whooo!'."
