Carly Rae Jepsen has been targeted by angry One Direction fans after they lost out to her at the American Music Awards.
The British boyband weren’t able to attend the ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday as they were busy rehearsing to sing for the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance in London, but they missed out on the New Artist of the Year award to the Call Me Maybe singer.
Straight after the award was announced, bitter 1D fans took to Twitter.
One tweeted: “carly rae jepsen more like carly rae kill yourself.” Another fumed: “CARLY RAE JEPSEN I’LL KILL YOU MAYBE.”
Another AMA winner, Taylor Swift, has recently received death threats online from 1D fans after she was rumoured to be dating band member Harry Styles.
Meanwhile, Carly told Billboard how much she was looking forward to catching up with Katy Perry at the awards.
She said of Katy: “I immediately took to her when I met her the first time. Before that I’d been a fan of her music for years, so it’s gonna be a special day that we get to share together.”
