Fans of One Direction hunk Harry Styles have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration over their favourite 1D member being nominated for the Villain of the Year award by British music magazine NME earlier this week.
He may be generally thought of as a funny and charming, cheeky chappy but it appears that not everyone thinks that Harry Styles is such a nice guy.
The One Direction hunk has been nominated by NME magazine as the Villain of the Year for their annual music awards for the second year in a row.
Nice guy or Villain of the Year? (WENN)
Harry will go up against the likes of British Prime Minister David Cameron, rebellious pop stars Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke, comedian Russell Brand and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Now, Directioners aren't going to take this kind of treatment without a fight. Many Hazza fans took to their Twitter accounts after hearing the nom news to defend their favourite boy bander.

It wasn't just Harry who faced an unfavourable nomination, One Direction also received a nod in the Worst Band category.
Joining them in the group are fellow bands; 30 Seconds To Mars, The 1975, Imagine Dragons, Muse and 1D's rival boy band, The Wanted.
Many Directioners took this as an opportunity to throw shade at The Wanted, saying this is one award they can finally win.
