Former 1D member, Zayn Malik, is facing some backlash after he asked his fans to donate money to his mom’s best friend so that she can get life-saving cancer treatment in Turkey.
Zayn tweeted out a link to his mom’s best friend’s GoFundMe account and wrote, “This is my Mums best friend.
Please help in any way possible.”
A lot of people were quick to point out that Zayn is “super rich” and shouldn’t ask his fan to donate money when he can “easily do so himself.” One person online said, “Instead of asking your fans why don’t you pay it lol.”
Zayn’s mom’s best friend notice he was getting a lot of backlash and she wrong on her GoFundMe page this:
“I asked my ‘nephew’ Zayn Malik to drum up some publicity for me, by way of highlighting my page and illness via Twitter. This has had an adverse effect for him as the spiteful trolls are attacking him for his kindness. Never, ever would I ask him for financial help in any way, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. My request was for him to enlighten the public of my sad plight and he did exactly as I asked. So come on all you trolls, give him a break please and let’s just get on with the fundraising.”
