Ho-l-y crap. If you’re GQ Magazine, you’re probably staring at the company’s Twitter feeds with an open gob right now. You may even have a small tear of despair rolling down your cheek. These poor guys have just received an absolute battering for their most recent magazine cover. A magazine cover which just so happens to have the One Direction boys on it.
Now, I’ve monitored their fans from afar (very far away actually) and you never, ever want to anger a One Directioner. Why? Because they react in -THE- most insane fashion, that’s bloody why.
And it’s all because of this:
Why would they get angry about that? Surely that’s their boys, the love of their lives, getting the praise and attention they deserve…no?
They took exception to Harry’s caption (obvs) which implied that he was a womaniser and basically a sex pest. Not that it was a song lyric. And they completely forgot that all of this stuff is approved by the band’s management team BEFORE it goes to print.
So, how did they react? A little bit like this:
@BritishGQ HARRY ISNT "UP ALL NIGHT TO GET LUCKY" HES UP ALL NIGHT MAKING VINES, HANGING OUT WITH HIS HAIR STYLISTS, OLD PEOPLE, AND A BABY

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is our future generation. Our teachers, our politicians, and our company directors.
Least GQ were a tad lighthearted about it. They even wrote a little blog naming and shaming those who threatened them: The most terrifying responses to our One Direction covers.
