Did Zayn Malik come for Kim Kardashian in a tweet that he sent out earlier this week? Let's weigh in...
Twitter is an interesting platform. With only 140 characters available per tweet, it is often hard to truly express what you mean, especially if it has a deeper meaning it is quite easy for people to misinterpret your words. That is fine for ordinary folks; not too many people would dissect the tweet of a regular person, but when you are a public figure with millions of followers a very different dynamic exists.
Zayn Malik, who was once a member of the world biggest boyband One Direction and is now a certified solo artist with his no. 1 hit "Pillow Talk," just faced a minor backlash with what people thought was shade thrown at reality personality Kim Kardashian's now infamous naked selfie.
Kim Kardashian found herself in a media storm as naysayers and defenders commented on a photo she posted to her Instagram last week. The issue seemed to have died down until Zayn Malik tweeted out a comment that was seemingly related to Kardashian's propensity for nude selfies.https://twitter.com/zaynmalik/status/709803011036614656
Zayn did not name anyone in the tweet, but the part about being naked was interpreted by many people as shade towards Kim. And a lot of people on twitter as well as media outlets jumped in and pointed out the double standard of him allegedly calling out someone for being naked, when he spends a lot of time posting shirtless pictures himself.
Of course within the context of the tweet depending on who reads it, one can interpret "Love how naked people feeling liberated...Read a book liberate your brain" as support for actually being naked or as sarcasm that naked people should read a book. The open-ended tweet has been evaluated in both ways, though Malik's naysayers were louder.
And Zayn tried to explain himself:https://twitter.com/zaynmalik/status/709804176751067136 https://twitter.com/zaynmalik/status/709806285479395328
But eventually he got tired of it allhttps://twitter.com/zaynmalik/status/709810679675547648
So a lot of people were quick to judge what they thought Zayn said, because they don't want him to allegedly judge that person's freedom of expression? Seems like those naysayers were equally quick to judge...
