Again Bella Thorne became the target of some really vicious comments and cyberbullying. This time it was in Instagram.

Apparently, Tomlinson and Simon held auditions in 2015 to form a new band, dubbed the female version of One Direction. Thorne commented "Awwww" below the photo. The simple comment unexpectedly infuriated most of Tomlinson's followers and they threatened Thorne.
Some Instagram users of Tomlinson fans even said, "Stay in your lane damn honey." Some Twitter users also threatened to kill her. Thorne was also referred to as the 'Taylor Swift 2.0' complete with snake emojis, a symbol which was often posted on Swift's account during her last year feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
According to Teen Vogue, the exaggerated threats on Instagram and Twitter were presumably because of fans accusing Thorne tried to tempt Tomlinson. It turned out that he was recently broken up with his girlfriend, Danielle Campbell. There were also other reasons according to the fans, Thomlinson was assumed secretly in a relationship with his bandmate, Harry Styles, which has always been vehemently denied by the boys.
