Did "The Daily Show" go too far this week?
Directioners are outraged at a comment made on the show regarding One Direction in relation to various terrorist groups. During a segment on the show, correspondent Jessica Williams was doing a "report" on new terrorist groups. She said, "Just as you were talking, a new terrorist group formed, with one member each from ISIS, al-Nusra, Al Qaeda, Hamas, One Direction and the Zetas drug cartel."
The comment was most likely not to be taken seriously, but Directioners did not take it well at all. Many even believe that this was targeting Zayn Malik, who is partly of Pakistani decent - even though the show does not specifically say his name or single him out.
But three hashtags became the top trends on Twitter from the outraged fans including #TheDailyShowGoneTooFar, #ZaynDefenseSquad, and #ZaynSavesNotKills.
