It’s been almost a year since Zayn Malik left the popular boy band, One Direction. The lads have been asked a couple of times how they’re dealing after Zayn’s departure but they kept mum. But recently, 1D member Harry Styles dissed the former bandmate.
As mentioned on Hollywood Life, Harry Styles has apparently kicked a fan’s cardboard cutout of Zayn Malik during their concert in Mexico City. Harry’s kicking incident was caught on video. And after he kicked it off the stage, 1D member Louis Tomlinson was seen applauding Harry for his act.

The site mentioned that the “Zayn-kicking” act was the most recent among the numerous times the boys dissed each other.
In the Nov. 18 Episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” host Ellen asked the lads about Zayn. Hollywood Life noted that Harry Styles “wasted no time” to give Ellen an answer.
“You could cut the tension in here with a knife,” Harry said.
The recent events was contradictory to Liam Payne’s earlier statement that they have moved on from Zayn’s departure.
“Everyone’s come out fine from it, thanks to our beautiful fans. He’s off doing what he loves as well. Both parties are winners in the end of a disaster of a situation. So, it’s all good,” Payne told in an interview.
After Zayn left the group last March, One Direction released their fifth studio album entitled, “Made In The A.M.” last November 13. Meanwhile, Zayn has confirmed a new taste of music that he’s set to give his fans. Zayn revealed that the only 1D member he has spoken to was Liam who understood his music taste.
In another report by Hollywood Life, a source denied the controversy and insisted that Harry Styles has indeed moved on.
“He doesn’t want to be asked about it in interviews and really doesn’t think fans need to be obsessing about it anymore. He jokes that he doesn’t even want to hear Zayn’s name again,” the source told the site.
“It’s time for everyone in the world to move on as well,” the source added.
