Niall Horan shames abusive online trolls messaging him

They need to be stopped...

Poor Niall.

While British boyband One Direction have been on hiatus, it’s given a chance for the lads to breathe, work on personal projects and spend time with family and friends like any person would.

While Louis, Harry, Niall and Liam have stopped recording music together, the One Direction hype machine has not.

While trying to relax and enjoy his down time, our pal Niall has been suffering the ugly side of fame. The poor bloke.

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JANUARY 31: Niall Horan from the band One Direction watches the Men's Singles Final match between Andy Murray of Great Britain and Novak Djokovic of Serbia during day 14 of the 2016 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on January 31, 2016 in Melbourne, Australia.

Not one to usually give his opinions on Twitter, the Mullingar man made an exception and vented his frustration.

Calling out the trolls who have been constantly abusing him and his family, he wrote in a tweet:

“For the last two weeks I’ve been receiving messages off a group of fans, they have drowned my phone in messages, keeping me awake at night but the worst part is they have been nothing but abusive.”

In a series of tweets, he spoke about the nights he was kept awake by the ridiculous trolls – and we really feel for him:

When will these trolls ever cop on? Not cool.
