Why do people hate One Direction?
 
I don't see what people have against them.

Steve35 18-09-2012 13:11

I don't hate them. It's just not my type of music.

Do they really impact your life THAT much?:rolleyes:

LandslideBrad 18-09-2012 13:27

Because they're popular and their fans.

Isn't it mainly their fans that people dislike? I mean the boys themselves are just pretty and making kiddy pop music, but their fans think they're something special.

I don't hate them. They do what boybands do and they do it well to be fair. I don't like their music but I see the appeal. If I had been 12/13 I probably would have liked One Direction too.

But I think in general a lot of people just like to hate on anyone successful, or anyone who is from The X Factor, or anyone who is good looking AND successful so One Direction were always going to have their haters. Anyone in the public eye has haters and fans. But they're obviously not hated by the masses if they're doing so well with their music careers.

Hate is the wrong word. It just that 1D appeal to a very specific market so the majority of people are just not interested in them.

I don't hate them but i don't like them either, i just dislike their music. The reasons why they get a lot of hate is mostly down to their very annoying fanbase who make them out to be more than what they are. Also manufactured almost always get quick a bit of stick so they're nothing new. They are very successful at the moment and the more successful you are the more hate you get.

I don't hate them but I find their music rubbish. One dimensional music for teenage girls :p

Gee, that sounds like Katy Perry.

johnnybgoode83 18-09-2012 14:55

I don't think anyone 'hates' them. I really dislike their music, though.

I do.:D

dylanpartyon 18-09-2012 15:06

I don't hate them. I just don't like there music at all. But I like that they are successful, and they seem like nice enough guys. What I hate, is the fact that they can be successful, that this is what is selling millions, that annoys me. If that makes sense??? And also their fan base, is just so annoying. I like them as people though, its just there music annoys me!!!

welsh_El 18-09-2012 15:08

Because there just jealous of good looking men.

I don't see any men in 1D. :p

Littlegreen42 18-09-2012 15:26

Got successful because of Backing Tapes and Hair Mousse.

Also they have (along with that annoying little bieb thing) created an army of hormonal psychopathic little girls!



Other than that?...

Ah the default answer, must be jealously lol. Ridiculous.

It could be that none of them have any real talent (heck couldn't even make it through to X factor on their own.)

BadKid95 18-09-2012 15:44

For me it's the fans, they're just so annoying

This is exactly how I feel, so I understand what you mean. I don't hate them. I actually think they are probably 5 decent lads if you met them in real life. So people calling them 5 Justin Biebers, I'd not. Justin Bieber from what we read is a jumped up little shit, I think these guys are probably pretty likeable.

However, I don't like that this is what makes them successful. I feel like they're becoming more successful because a lot of their fans are so obsessive. Geez even if it's one of their birthdays, their fans take to twitter as if it's a holiday and the world has to stop and acknowledge this. They take stanning to a whole new level. Their new single has become the most pre-ordered song ever, and it's not even been heard yet:confused: I hate that the media are portraying them like the world is at their feet, considering they've only really had 1 hit single and album.

But yeah that's just my opinion. I don't hate them, just I'm not a fan of their throwaway music or the teenie bopper fans on twitter

tangsman 18-09-2012 16:20

Detest them, their music, their management and their fans.

musicjukebox123 18-09-2012 16:54

I agree with most comments i mean even just here in the UK they haven't achieved multiple chart toppers and the two singles after WMYB one sold badly and the other just average.

If you compare them to other boybands Take That,Boyzone,Westlife even JLS they all dominated the singles chart with multiple #1's.

Basically it just seems like what others have said they are made out to be bigger than they are. In some countries they probably are but here they haven't really dominated like the mentioned groups who also have sold a lot more per album in the UK (i appreciate UAN is still selling).

hate is too strong, but it's unpleasant to see complete lack of talent so rewarded in any walk of life
