The Dumb AF Reason Why Directioners Are Mad At Fifth Harmony
Fifth Harmony has been proving themselves now more than ever with the recent release of their second studio album, 7/27. The album is definitely more mature and shows the groups’ growth as a band and as young women. With “Work From Home” being a massive success that gave the girls more street cred, we’ve been anxiously awaiting their next single.
The wait is officially over because this morning we were #blessed with a new single AND music video for “All In My Head (Flex)” feat. Fetty Wap. While every Harmonizer was celebrating, there was another fandom who wasn’t so happy about the new release. Everyone is using the #AIMHVideo hashtag to promote the song, but Directioners are getting especially upset.
While Harmonizers saw it as a chance to spread the word about the video, Directioners thought it had something to do with the most well-known Tweet that has the same acronym. The Tweet in question was one that Louis Tomlinson sent to Harry Styles back in 2011 that sent Larry shippers into a craze.
Always in my heart @Harry_Styles . Yours sincerely, Louis

After clicking on the hashtag to see that it was about a Fifth Harmony music video and not about two of their favorite boyband members, Directioners were quick to express their disappointment.

Some even went so far to say that Fifth Harmony shouldn’t have even used the same letters out of respect.
Honestly tho 5h shouldn't have a song with the same letters of the most iconic second retweeted tweet in history #AIMHvideo

This Twitter feud has left everyone else wondering why they’re bickering in the first place. Fandoms are about supporting your favorites, not bringing others down. While these two groups are trying to fix their issues, we’ll be watching the new music video on repeat.
This isn’t the first time the Fifth Harmony has been at the center of negative attention. Here are some of the biggest disses that have been thrown at the girls:
The ladies of Little Mix and 5H have a lot in common, but that doesn't mean they are going to get along all of the time. In 2014 when 5H's song "Bo$$" was flying up the British charts and the group performed on the UK version of X Factor, the British band's friends and family totally attacked their performance. "Recognise the heartbeat/doors/pop ups on Fifth Harmony performance?… Think Little Mix have done all that DNA/Move/Don't let go…copycats," the girls' hairdresser Aaron Carlo tweeted while watching the show with the Little Mix ladies.
Leigh-Anne's mom then tweeted saying their girls need to be appreciated more, which might be true, but it doesn’t mean 5H isn't talented, duh. Okay, so technically the Little Mix ladies didn't dissed their American friends, but they didn't stop their friends and family from being mean, which is still bad.
