One Direction aka 1D was an English Irish boy band formed in London in 2010. The band members included Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik, who later quit the band in 2015. The group has won many awards including seven Brit Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, six Billboard Music Awards, seven American Music Awards; including Artist of the Year in 2014 and 2015 and 28 Teen Choice Awards. 

The band has been in the headlines since they became a hit after forming a group on the British singing competition ‘The X Factor’. It was Harry Styles who came up with the band name ‘One Direction’. One Direction won third place in the competition and immediately after the final, their song "Forever Young" was leaked onto the internet which would have been released if they had won the first place on ‘The X Factor’. 

Here are the top 5 controversies of the band:

1] Harry Styles and Zayn Malik

Recently, Harry Styles appeared on a Saturday Night Live as a host and musical guest. He made a joke regarding his former band member. Though he didn’t take Zayn’s name fans, assumed it was about him since he said "I don't know if you've heard or not, but I'm not in boy band anymore. I'm in a man band now. I was in a band called One Direction. How crazy would it be if they were here tonight?" Styles said before pausing. "Well, they're not here." It however has enraged the fans of Zayn.

2] Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik 

Louis Tomlinson and Naughty Boy had a Twitter spat over Zayn Malik working with the producer in the studio quickly after his One Direction departure. Naughty Boy posted a picture of him and Zayn. To which Louis tweeted as, “Remember when you were 12 and you used to think those Mac filters for your pictures were cool haha ! Some people still do HA!” He even replied to Naughty Boy’s tweet by saying “Jesus forgot you were such an in demand producer .... How does it feel to be riding on the back of someone else's career ?” to which Zayn responded “remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?”

3] Zayn Malik signing a new contract

Zayn signed a solo contract with RCA records and claimed it was time to make "real music". He tweeted "I guess I never explained why I left , it was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who i really am! #realmusic #RCA !!" Certainly, he was throwing shade at 1D.

4] Harry Styles posted a photo of him in a native outfit

Harry posted a photo of him wearing a traditional Native American headdress, but his followers and fans were not at all impressed and were rather shocked with many accusing him of cultural appropriation. He later deleted the picture from his social media accounts.

5] When the band used a monkey for a video

Their song ‘Steal My Girl’ had a monkey featuring in it. Even though a 1D spokesperson cleared it up that no animals were harmed, the UK-based charity Wild Futures called for the video to be pulled altogether. Let's just say animal rights activists were not happy.
