Zayn Malik terrorised the hearts of little girls everywhere when he savagely quit One Direction the other week, but a huge amount of people (as well as bat shit crazy One Directioners) reckon Bill Maher went too far with this joke comparing him to terrorist 2 from the Boston bombings:

Whether you're a fan of Zayn Malik or not, what Bill Maher said was nowhere NEAR acceptable. #billmaherisaracist

I hope @billmaher is feeling the wrath of 1,000s of teenage girls in his mentions for his vile racist "joke" calling Zayn Malik a terrorist

That wasn’t even that funny. Are people just getting outraged for the sake of it as usual? Does that lame joke really count as promoting Islamophobia? I mean they do actually look a little alike mostly because they’re brown kids around the same age who both have rock star haircuts in those pictures. Not because they’re both terrorists. It’s harmless — nothing like ripping a Chinese dude to pieces on stage in front of millions of viewers.
