Fans of Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles became upset Thursday when a trending topic on Twitter deemed “Larry,” the supposed romantic relationship between the One Direction singers, “not real.”

“#CarenAndLarryAreNotReal” was the top Twitter trend both worldwide and in the United States on Thursday morning. Some were confused by the “Caren” part, until it was determined that the trend originator mistyped “Camren.” That refers to Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello and Lauren Jauregui, who some fans also believe are a secret couple.

But most of the tweets that poured in focused on Tomlinson and Styles. “LARRY WILL ALWAYS BE REAL. Sometimes i hate this fandom,” wrote One Directioner, who highlighted the nearly 40,000 tweets that had already been sent. Another tweeted, “i hope y’all antis understand that saying ‘Larry isn’t real’ over and over again isn’t going to change my mind.” Someone else shot back, “Explain why they look so happy while embracing each other then.”

One person tried to look on the brightside, noting, “This trend is new chance for us *Larry shippers* to post some Larry pics.” But this is hardly the first time some have tried to debunk the conspiracy theory. In fact, Liam Payne riled fans with comments he made last September.

As Gossip Cop reported, Payne said in his Attitude cover story that the “Louis and Harry thing” is “absolutely nuts and drives me insane.” He went to compare Larry shippers to a cult, pointing out how there’s “people that watch them and think that every move they make is a gesture toward them being together, and I know it’s not true and it makes me mad.”

The remarks sparked a firestorm on Twitter, leading Payne to tweet, “It’s funny I thought people appreciated honesty these days.” But it seems what’s being honest about Tomlinson and Styles is still up for debate.
