[APOLOGIES FOR THE GRINDING/WHIRRING SOUNDS YOU’LL HEAR, THERE’S BEEN SOMETHING WRONG WITH MY COMPUTER’S FAN FOR MONTHS AND IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE TO GET IT FIXED ><]
I hate how this article presents Zayn Malik as being incredibly naive and clueless when he tweeted #freepalestine by suggesting that he thought it was a “popular opinion” (and that he had “no idea” of the backlash he’d receive). The article not only erases the incredible harassment Zayn received for tweeting about being Muslim in the past (which lead to him deleting his account for a time), and other racism he has experienced, but it also depoliticizes what he is doing and sells his bravery short. Zayn almost certainly knows that Rihanna and other celebrities took the heat for doing the same thing, or at the very least, has an inkling of the pressure from the pro-Israel side—and yet he made the decision to post it anyway. The article also fails to mention these celebrities either deleted their tweets or back pedaled with a more moderate tweet later, but Zayn has stuck to his guns and has done neither.
The article also fails to mention that since Zayn posted the tweet, he hasn’t tweeted anything since. My guess is he put it out there and walked away because he knew what would follow. I’ve done similar things when I’ve left comments on problematic youtube videos or in response to really bigoted youtube comments. I say my piece, and then I walk away and don’t bother reading the responses. I can’t say with 100% certainty Zayn did that, but that’s my guess
