One Direction Fan Kills Dog to Get a Twitter Follow

A One Direction fan has allegedly murdered her own pet dog after members of the group (not band. Bands play instruments. One Direction are just a group of boys.) didn't follow her back on Twitter.

The bloody mental girl sent four of the five One Direction boys (bad luck the fifth one. Or good luck, alternatively) tweets asking for them to follow her or she'd "break [my] dogs neck." she even posted a picture of her apparently strangling the hound, as incentive.

Obviously One Direction are very busy touring the world and being trendy and awesome and hoping to one day grow pubes, so they occasionally miss the odd tweet from odd fans. 

The "psycho" girl was not followed back in due time, and unfortunately her pet Chihuahau bore the brunt of her hormone fueled teenage fury. She then tweeted to 1D child Liam Payne "I Love You. Please Follow Me. My Dog Has Just Died."

Things didn't look good for the dog, who has not been named, when she later posted another picture of herself cradling the lifeless animal. The group didn't respond, probably because they were taking turns on Taylor Swift, but other "Directioners" did. Angrily. One of them even started a Change.org petition to have the girl's Twitter account suspended, which has since happened.

Some people have said that this whole thing was a hoax, and that the girl was just trying to get the boy's attention and didn't actually kill anything. Others cite earlier pictures posted by the same girl of pets in blenders (which is a good name for a punk band), the Chihuahua with a gun to its head (I didn't mention, this girl is American) and even a picture of her strangling what looks to be her Mum. 

Even if she didn't snap her dog's neck like a refrigerated Kit Kat, there's something definitely not right there. Still, One Direction's policy is and has always been that they do not bow to pressure from terrorists.
