I want to give these girls a giant hug right now. Their quiet respect as they waited for THE MOMENT and then their exhalation when Harry said “His” was amazing.
I’m 35. When I was 15, this would have never happened. Teenage girls would not have been in the audience hoping, praying, waiting with baited breath in hopes that one of their favorite members of a boy band would give a little hint that he was madly in love with another boy, who happened to also be a member of his boy band. It would have never happened. Yet, you can hear that it isn’t just these girls, it sounds like a huge portion of the audience was cheering.
Um, so… The Daily Show mentioned One Direction again… this time in a joke about new terrorist groups.
"Just as you were talking, a new terrorist group formed, with one member each from ISIS, Al-Nusra, Al Qaeda, Hamas, One Direction and the Zetas drug cartel."
I’d love to give The Daily Show, Jon Stewart and Jessica Williams the benefit of the doubt and say they were making a non-specific boybands-have-a-lot-of-members-joke and not a targeted, Muslims-are-terrorists-and-Zayn-in-particular joke, but this still made me really uncomfortable.
