In an interview with Fabulous magazine, the One Direction star says how things all got too much when he started receiving tweets upsetting his family, and even accusing him of being  a terrorist.

Zayn says: "When it starts to upset people that I care about, or when I hear it about my mum, then it's a problem."

So what kind of nasty messages was he receiving?

"Nasty things like I'm a terrorist, and this and that, how can you call me that and get away with it?"

"My little cousin put up a family picture at Eid because she got a photo with Perrie and she was so happy about it but then everybody just gave it to me double barrel."

"We live in 2012 and I thought we'd moved forward. If that was said to me in the street or if someone said it to my face something could be done about it."
