I feel bad for all the solo Harry stans that want Harry to hate 1D TBH because their issue, from where I’m standing, is self-hatred.
These fans also tend to want Harry to be the kind of guy that fucks around with models and does hard drugs like candy. I think it’s all about validation. Validation that their favourite artist is a rockstar not a popstar, not a member of a boyband that was formed on the X Factor.
These people don’t want Harry associated with 1D as a brand any more because they want external validation from the GP that they’re cool. There’s literally no other reason I can think of for such a thing. Harry can be a successful and record-breaking solo artist without having to hate his band or band mates. He has never even hinted at having animosity of any kind with them. In fact, he has shown the exact opposite a thousand times.
They tend to like Zarry and Narry (a lot of them dropped Zarry after Harry did seem to have issues with Zayn) because Zayn is now ‘real music’ and Niall was always seen like the sporty dude that’s friends with everyone. The issue is with the band and Liam and Louis (I guess they don’t make the cool cut?).
It’s sad tbh. Needing validation from the outside so badly that you want to change one of your idol’s foundation (and isolate him from the people he loves and that have supported him and grown with him for the past six years).
