Louis Tomlinson took the opportunity to destroy a Naughty Boy piñata.
From there it was an embarrassing back-and-forth between Louis and Naughty Boy comparing their résumés and name-dropping Sam Smith that was just cringeworthy for everyone involved.
Then in June, Malik’s cover of Rae Sremmurd’s “No Type” mysteriously leaked, and many pointed the finger at Naughty Boy, who adamantly denied any involvement.
Regardless of how it got leaked, Malik wasn't having any of it. He called out Naughty Boy on Twitter calling him a "fat joke" and a "faker." We imagine their collaborations are scrapped.
Now, things took a turn for the worse when a fan threw a piñata of a monkey with Naughty Boy's attached on stage at One Direction's Kansas City show on Tuesday, resulting in Louis Tomlinson aggressively stomping on it and kicking it back to the audience.
The feud between One Direction and Naughty Boy rages on.Though the boys said it was all love at the time, Zayn Malik's departure from One Direction has provided a lot of animosity - not towards their former bandmate - but people assisting in Malik's solo ventures. Particularly producer Naughty Boy, who publicly flaunted his working relationship with Malik on social media and fired shots at the 1D boys. Let's just say it caused a rift.
