As Twitchy reported, #TheDailyShowGoneTooFar was the No. 1 trend in the U.S. earlier today, with One Direction fans outraged over a joke that “a new terrorist group just formed, with one member each from ISIS, al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, Hamas, One Direction and the Zetas drug cartel.”
Today, the Daily Show issued a non-apology, claiming to know nothing about the British boy band.
Will that be enough to assuage the anger of the #ZaynDefenseSquad? Zayn Malik is the one Muslim member of the band, leading many fans to think the “Daily Show” terrorist joke was targeted at him.
