It all started when Perrie and her bandmates were spotted enjoying a day at the beach in Florida earlier this month, and while all the girls looked gorgeous some spiteful tweeters were soon picking on Perrie for her pale complexion.
As pictures of the star circulated online, one tweeter posed: “for Halloween i should be perrie — yeah girl get some demon eyes white skin white hair ”
Perrie doesn't seem too upset by the comments though, hitting back in an interview with OK! as she cites her busy schedule for her lack of tan
"I say 'shut up'!," she says. "I'm an English Rose thank you very much. I'm not going to dye my skin orange - I'm working too hard taking America by storm to fake tan."
That told them! Just in case the message wasn't loud and clear, Jesy soon jumped in to defend her friend, but her comment may not go down well with some Directioners.
"Can I just say, all the people hating are just stupid little Zayn Malik fans", Jesy declares. "They're hating because they want to be with Zayn."
Perrie seemed to agree with her bandmate as she added: "Get a life!," before Jesy said: "I actually want Perrie's skin tone, it's beautiful. I tried to make myself pale and it wouldn't happen. I looked like Morticia Adams."
Fans haven't reacted too well to Jesy's comment, with one tweeting today "The stupid little Zayn Malik fans are you only reason their album actually sold", with another adding:
"those stupid little zayn malik fans paid for the engagement ring that ur friend perald keeps showing off all the time whatcha gonna do".
I know OP notes are discouraged but I don't blame her for speaking out against all the hate she gets especially after last night when a BBC show had a Zayn fan claim she wanted to track down Perrie Edwards and 'cut off her head with a rusty chainsaw.'
