The One Direction name saga looks set to run and run after the US One Direction claimed that they were not going to give up without a fight. They claim that the One Direction name belongs to them and they intend to make the UK One Direction change their name.
However, while this legal case has brought the US One Direction some extra coverage, it has also brought them a fair amount of trouble. The UK One Direction have become huge around the world and their fans are clearly not happy with the US One Direction.
It has now been claimed that the US One Direction have been receiving nasty and hurtful messages, as well as threats of violence and in some cases, even death threats. One fan of the UK One Direction even threatened to kill the frontman’s father.
Sean O’Leary explained to The Sun, “There has been so much hate mail, like people threatening to cut our b***s off. The one that stands out for me is a girl saying she wanted to kill my father.” The US One Direction have also claimed that, while they have huge respect for the UK One Direction, they believe their own music is better. Somehow, we think millions of people around the world would disagree.
