One Direction fans attack Lorde's boyfriend with racist tweets

Pop singer Lorde‘s 24-year-old boyfriend, James Lowe, is being called “ugly” and “Jackie Chan” on Twitter, among other racist insults. There’s no record of Lorde dissing One Direction on the internet — but the nasty messages keep coming, even though she tweeted about attending a 1D concert in October!

Lorde, 17, loves to post cute pictures with James to her Instagram account, including a cute beach photo and the couple brushing their teeth.

Now, the “Royals” singer is getting mocked for them, with 1D fans re-posting the pics and calling James ugly since an online rumor is swirling that she insulted the British heartthrobs’ looks.

Some One Direction fans tweeted:

Rapper Tyler, The Creator, 22, posted a photo on Dec. 5 of Lorde and James’ sweet beach photo — along with a not-so-nice caption that says,”Hhahahahahah.”

Lorde, 17, then asked the rapper on Twitter, ”Was this supposed to make me feel something?” Tyler then replied by tweeting, “”NOT AT ALL. IT MADE ME LAUGH.” Both tweets have since been deleted.
