Zayn Malik is continuing to shade his fellow pop stars on Twitter. Just after the former One Direction singer dissed ex-fiancee Perrie Edwards and her band Little Mix, Malik has now taken a dig at Taylor Swift while showing his support for Miley Cyrus.

On Monday, Malik retweeted a post by the Twitter account “Bitch Problems” that said, “the difference is astounding,” and featured images of Swift and Cyrus. Next to Swift’s picture was a quote she said about why she removed her music from streaming on Spotify. The quote read: “[People] can still listen to my music if they get it on iTunes. I’m always up for trying something. And I tried it and I didn’t like the way it felt. I think there should be an inherent value placed on art.”

And next to Cyrus’ picture, there was a statement the singer made regarding her Happy Hippie Foundation, reading: “I’ve made my money. If no one buys my album, cool. It’s fine. I’ve got a house, and I’ve got dogs that I love. I don’t need anything else.” Clearly, the tweet was trying to call out Swift for focusing on making money, while praising Cyrus for saying she doesn’t necessarily care about profits. Even though Malik didn’t directly comment on the post, his retweet once again spoke volumes.

As Gossip Cop noted, Malik was accused of shading Edwards this weekend when he indirectly said Fifth Harmony’s song “Worth It” is better than Little Mix’s “Black Magic.” The drama began when Twitter user “Shady Music Facts,” posted, “Which is the better single? Retweet – ‘Worth It’ by Fifth Harmony. Favorite – ‘Black Magic’ by Little Mix.” Malik retweeted the post, causing the hashtag “#ZaynHasNoChill” to trend.

And, now it seems Malik still has no chill. TELL US: What do you think of Malik using Twitter to subtly call out Swift?

UPDATE: Calvin Harris had a Twitter feud with Zayn Malik in response to the tweet about Swift.
