#RIPLarryShippers trends on Twitter after One Direction documentary prompts fan suicide rumours
The suggestion that One Direction fans are a bit over the top reached an all-time high with the airing of a Channel 4 documentary last night.
Crazy About One Direction showed a series of teenage girls gushing about the boyband, confirming that they're not interested in 'real' boys, that they fantasise about a gay romance within the band and spend sleepless nights camping outside hotels.
While many of us watched in admiration of their dedication, the programme has also sparked a flurry of alarm about the wellbeing of these young ladies.
In addition, 1D fans who decided to tune into the show have been left outraged and insist the programme has depicted them as "insane" and "psychotic".
Soon after the show, Twitter users saw the phrase #RIPLarryShippers trending worldwide.
The trend refers to rumours that 14 youths - who each call themselves Larry Shipper and fantasise about a romance between Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles - had taken their own lives after the show.
The rumours have since seen the number of suicides rise to 42. Although these tales are currently unconfirmed internet rumours, the boys of One Direction have been left feeling concerned.
Liam Payne tweeted to his followers today: "Not really sure what's going on right now I just hope everyone's ok. Hearing some horrible things... Really hope this isn't true."
He added: "Just so all of you know we love you guys and we know how dedicated you are and tbh we can't believe it that you guys spend all your time on us.
"We couldn't give a f**k what any documentary says. They're dramatised for entertainment and full of bulls**t anyway. We all know how hard you work for us and see it everyday at our shows.
"Let's all take a step back and think about what we/you have all achieved. You should be proud."
Seriously? Get a life. Nobody is worth that..ESPECIALLY this crap band.
If I saw anyone being that obsessed with anything, alarm bells would be ringing straight away. Do their parents, friends, teachers, and anyone they come into contact with them not sit there and think "Maybe something is not right here?" But instead of doing anything they let them on a television program for the whole nation to see and then are surprised at getting bad reaction.
I think I am living on a different planet,.
saying the suicide is stupid isn't funny. idc if u think its stupid, Idc if u think that's bull****. I don't give a **** what u think ok. stop telling us to grow up because chances are your adults telling a teen u don't even know to get a life. we do have a life. and when we take our lifes it isn't something to joke about.
