Repeat after me, Directioners: I solemnly swear to be supportive of Zayn.
Directioners are quite possibly having the toughest time of any fandom going at the moment. Issues with the tour, Zayn dropping out, and various scandals have made this world tour possibly the most amulet-tastic horror show there ever was.
Now, with Zayn's Naughty Boy collaboration out in the open, fans are finally getting a chance to digest Zayn's version of being a normal 22 year old.
As it stands, there are 3 types of Directioner reactions to Zayn's song.
The reluctant fans

The "rejoin One Direction" camp
I won't mind has good lyrics. zayn has a good voice. but. something's missing. rather, four things. and well. the song is auto-tuned.— Ariana Is My Queen (@Larry_Lashton1) March 31, 2015

Zayn needs to start a solo career except every song he releases is ft. Niall, Louis, Liam, and Harry ...— zach tomlinson (@zachdelrey) March 26, 2015
Zayn's former bandmates haven't responded directly to the song but Louis Tomlinson did tweet some harsh words for the producer.
