Only time will tell if former One Direction member Zayn Malik will find success as a solo artist, but as far as Little Mix fans are concerned, he shall henceforth remain I-R-R-E-L-E-V-A-N-T.

Malik, who broke off his engagement to Little Mix member Perrie Edwards last week (possibly via text message), wasn’t held in high esteem during a recent LM meet and greet in Arizona along the band’s United States press tour. According to the Daily Mail, one Mixer brought along a sign that read “Zayn is irrelevant, anyway” and “Stay strong, Perrie” on the other. While Perrie quietly noted “Don’t show that, but true,” according to the site, one of her fellow band mates moved to raise the stakes and get the sentiment out into the open.

 

As the group geared up to leave the event, bold Jade Thirlwall decided to borrow the fan-made sign, smile and ensure its “irrelevant” note faced paparazzi en route. Thirlwall may not have written the memo herself, but from where we’re sitting, that’s a loud and clear cosign. What happened to the days of watercolor hearts and Sharpie peace signs…?

Surprised Mixers are taking the breakup so hard, or that Jade was so complicit in the anti-Zayn sentiments? Sound off in the comments.
