Zayn Malik fans have flocked to social media to demand Spotify remove a song that brands the singer ‘a terrorist’.
Adopting the hashtag #RemoveItForZayn, the campaign targets a track by Uma Kompton titled Zayn Did 9/11.
Kompton is known as an online troll, who has evidently now taken his trolling to a musical level.
#RemoveItForZayn: Zayn Malik fans have flocked to social media to demand Spotify remove a song that brands the singer ‘a terrorist’
The song was actually released a few years ago, but Zayn’s fanbase have recently cottoned on, slamming it for being islamophobic.
The hashtag trended on Twitter and Spotify took note and removed the song from the streaming service.
A Spotify spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘Spotify prohibits content on the platform which expressly and principally promotes, advocates, or incites hatred or violence against a group or individual based on characteristics, including, race, religion, gender identity, sex, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, veteran status, or disability.
‘When content that violates this standard is identified it is removed from the platform.’
The track appears to imply Zayn, 27, in the bombing of the World Trade Centre on September 11 2001, which saw nearly 3000 people die.
Outrage! The hashtag trended on Twitter and Spotify took note and removed the song from the streaming service
Although Spotify have removed it, YouTube and Apple have not, at the time of writing.
MailOnline has approach all three companies for comment.
‘This absolute islamophobic filth of a song needs to be removed right f****n now!’ one fan demanded online.
Another posted: ‘MUSLIMS ARE NOT TERRORISTS. ISLAMAPHOBIA IS GROSS. REMOVE THE DAMN SONG OFF OF SPOTIFY.’
Someone else echoed: ‘His faith affiliation, skin color, or race does not equal terrorism. If you let a minority of any racial/religious group dictate your view of the majority of said group, then you need to re-evaluate your worldview!’
