We’re not saying we don’t want to date all the boys in One Direction, just that it must be hard to actually be their girlfriends... or even associated with them in any way whatsoever. God forbid Harry Styles hooks up with someone Directioners don’t deem appropriate (sorry about your ticket sales dropping, Taylor)!

The latest victim of fan wrath is Zayn Malik — or, rather, a girl he allegedly had a one night stand with. Perez Hilton is reporting that dozens of fans have sent death threats to Australian waitress Courtney Webb, who claims she hooked up with Zayn last week. And when we say death threats, we mean it. One message said, "Courtney Webb… we will find you and kill you. Sincerely, Directioners." Yikes.

The best part of this (yes, there is one)? They seem to be somehow protecting Zayn’s actual girlfriend Perrie Edwards, of X Factor-formed group Little Mix. Why is this funny? Because last year, Perrie received similar threats from Directioners, and they were so intensely mean to Perrie, she deleted her Twitter account for a while.

Moral of the story? It’s probably wise to love these boys from afar.
