Jeez, One Direction just can’t catch a break lately, can they? The popular boy band has been getting dissed left and right in the last few weeks, and the most recent person to express their 1D distaste is former Lost star Matthew Fox. During an appearance on Conan, the actor the topic of 1D came up, and Matthew doesn’t seem to be their biggest fan.
Matthew told the show’s host how he has been getting into arguments with his 15-year-old daughter about the British boy band sensation. He said, “She’s a huge One Direction fan. She’s got this major crush on Harry Styles.” Adding, “And I’m a huge music fan and we’re having that classic father-child argument about music right now. So I’m trying to encourage her to explore music that’s outside of the boy bands.”
He continued, “I upset her every time we talk about One Direction, so we’ve pretty much had to agree to not talk about One Direction at all. Every time she brought up One Direction, I felt it was my responsibility to bust their chops, and she would get very upset.” Conan then asked whether or not he’d be joining her at a 1D concert any time soon, to which Matthew replied, “No way!”
While Matthew obviously isn’t a fan of the guys, this is practically a rave review compared to some of the other comments made about 1D lately. First, singer/songwriter Jake Bugg referred to the boy band as “terrible.” Then, at last week’s NME Awards, they earned the titled of ‘Worst Band’ while Harry was crowned ‘Villain of the Year.’ Way harsh, guys!
