One Direction - Angry Parents Force One Direction To Delete 1D Tattoo Appeal Tweet

Subscribe to One Direction alerts

One Direction have got themselves in a spot of parental trouble. It’s not their own parents that are upset with their behaviour, though, but the parents of their fans. According to MailOnline, One Direction were forced to remove a tweet suggesting their fans should tweet them photos of their 1D tattoos, with a view to including the images in their forthcoming documentary, being made by the Super Size Me documentary maker Morgan Spurlock.

It may have seemed like a harmless request from the boys, who are getting increasingly more inked by the day, themselves. Some parents of 1D fans were worried that it might spur their kids on to go and get themselves a 1D tat, just to be part of the image campaign and they were quick off the mark when it came to asking the band to retract the tweet. Realising that they’d potentially have even angrier mums and dads on their hands if they didn’t retract the tweet, the offending request was removed. Presumably, several thousands of their fans will have already seen the tweet by tat point, of course. A vaguely spurious apology was offered by the band’s spokesman, saying that the tweet had been posted “in error.” He added “One Direction do not want to encourage any of their fans to get 1D tattoos.”

Harry Styles, one of the band’s members doesn’t seem to be able to stop getting himself tattooed. He recently had a giant butterfly inked on his torso, after getting a ship on his arm just recently. All very worrying stuff for the parents of his young, impressionable fans, of course.
