Just Plain Offensive

Muslim singer Zayn Malik admitted to quitting Twitter after being a victim of racist messages sent from sick-minded trolls.
Now a vile song blaming the One Direction singer for the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers in 2001 has sparked fury among fans.
The track called 'Zayn Did 9/11' features the singer's silhouette superimposed over an image of the September 11 attacks.
1D fans quickly defended their idol, 19, by holding up signs at the band's latest concert saying "Zayn's Not Racist," and similar supportive messages.
The hugely offensive track is still available to download from the official iTunes store for just 79p despite an online petition to have it removed already has more than 200 signatures.
It’s claimed to be the work of American rapper Rucka Rucka Ali who has since been branded “disgusting” among hundreds of unprintable tweets.
His Twitter account has since been suspended but the song itself remains free to play on YouTube.

Fans are petitioning to have the offensive song 'Zayn Did 9/11' - which includes a picture of the Twin Tower attacks and the singer's silhouette - removed from iTunes
