One Direction fans are absolutely freaking out that the boy band received the same exact Teen Choice “Male Hottie” award nomination as its former member Zayn Malik. As Gossip Cop reported earlier on Tuesday, One Direction, Malik, Justin Bieber, 5 Seconds of Summer, Ryan Guzman and Austin Mahone are all nominated for what’s called the “Fashion Choice Male Hottie” award.

Many fans can’t even imagine having to pick one over the other to win the award, and have taken to Twitter to vent their frustrations over Teen Choice pitting One Direction and Malik against each other. “Sh*t teen choice male hottie nomination is one direction vs zayn malik r u f*cking kidding me @TeenChoiceFOX how can we vote between them,” a fan with the user name “Niallprncss” tweeted. Another Twitter user who goes by “1DFamilyIndo,” wrote, “So we start getting a separate name for Zayn Malik and One Direction in one nomination now???” A third fan with the handle “Cindysaishabil,” noted, “Nothing hurts more than seeing one direction and zayn malik in the same nomination but separated by name.”

Twitter user “CEEsthetic” asked Teen Choice if they were “serious” about nominating both One Direction and Malik for the same award. The fan added, “WTF. You gotta be kidding me.” Another fan with the Twitter handle “AdamCrestani” told Teen Choice they were “shady for giving One Direction a nomination for Choice Male Hottie having Zayn Malik as a separate nominee.” And a fan named “PurpleSkies” simply expressed that the entire thing was “awkward.” What do you think about One Direction and Zayn Malik being nominated for the same Teen Choice Award?
