Lorde‘s not exactly known for having a filter; at 17 years old, she’s already had enough celebrity feuds to last a lifetime. However, even though we have opinions about her choice of words in interviews, there’s a different matter concerning the “Royals” crooner that we need to address…

It’s being reported that Lorde called Justin Bieber and the lads of One Direction “ugly.” Okay, that’s out there; that’s her personal opinion. Since then, though, fans of the aforementioned acts have taken to the Internet to attack not Lorde directly, but her rumored boyfriend, James Lowe, calling him ugly for — wait for it — his race.

While not all of the insults related to the fact that he’s of Asian descent per se (though many did), there were still plenty who stereotyped (“Is he a math nerd?”) and/or suggested that “he should be delivering Chinese takeaway.” Umm, are you people joking? Again, not condoning Lorde’s initial comments whatsoever, but to attack a guy who you don’t even know for his ethnic background is not in any way okay. If anything, we’d say something about the fact that he’s 8 years older than her, so there’s an age issue involved, but nothing to do with his heritage. Fortunately, there are a select few who realize this:

What are your thoughts on the matter? On Lorde’s comments? On Directioners and Beliebers’ insults? Weigh in below!

    I cannot BELIEVE people would stoop so low. Lorde has a right to her own opinion,and pepole shouldn’t judge her for that.It’s sad to think how a simple opinion can set some people off.Honestly this HAS to stop. I am getting so sick and tired of all of this hate. Why can’t we all just get along? This is getting out of hand. You girls need to control yourselves. This is just ridiculous.

    She has the right to say whatever she wants. If she thinks they are ugly, so what? Her opinion won’t make a difference to anyone’s life, so why even waste your breath being angry about this? And why the fuck would you bully someone for being asian? it’s just dumb and immature.
    seriously grow up and stop fighting about/for people, who you don’t know, who are fucking rich and don’t give two fucks about any of you. (not everyone of course. i’m not generalizing famous people)

    The reason people don’t like what lorde says is because the stuff she says is real and most of the time true. It’s these stupid little 10 year old girls who shouldn’t even have social media that are over reacting because their “future husbands” are being made fun of. Remember ladies they are adults and can handle themselves, they’re not in the third grade anymore they could probably care less about the snotty things lorde is saying.

    Teens these days disgusted me. I was a teen, yes, but even I wasn’t such b**** like kids these days. Bashing on someone’s boydpfriend simply because she said One Direction & Justin Bieber were UGLY? God, that is so not okay. We’re all entitled to our own opinions. Not everyone thinks those guys are hot, no reason for hating on someone’s boyfriend for it.

    IF she really said that about JB and 1D the fans should be mean to her not her bf. Like idgaf if she really said those nasty things she can expect nasty things back.

    I personally like Lorde. She believes in something and doesn’t hide that. Plenty of people do the same thing, but people don’t like her because her opinions are different. As a caucasian female who is dating an asian male I also get some of the racial comments from friends about him and it makes me very mad. Just because he is asian doesn’t mean anything about him. You don’t see his friends asking him if I wear Uggs and drink pumpkin spice lattes every day. It’s time to stop judging people based on their race. It is the 21st century and things are different.

    I’m a directioner and a lorde fan and this is just an example of those crazed fans trying to “defend” their fandom. First off, whoever bullied lorde’s boyfriend, your fandom should be ashamed of you. Bullying someone because of race is worse than those directioners who crashed Greg Horan’s wedding. Just absolutely disgraceful.

      I’m a directioner, but the crazed fans are going overboard. Saying things like that to her boyfriend is just plain horrible.
