One Direction fans not happy that Royal Blood won Best British Group at the Brits
Hell hath no fury like fans of a boy band scorned.
Royal Blood won Best British Group at the Brit Awards last night in London. They beat off competition from Alt-J, Clean Bandit, Coldplay and One Direction.
The notoriously devout fans of all things One Direction were not happy campers at all. They took to Twitter to express their disbelief and outrage. This lady means no disrespect as she..eh..disrespects them:
NO DISRESPECT TO THEM OR OUT BUT WHO THE FUCK ARE ROYAL BLOOD ???

There was genuine puzzlement too:
How can you even compare One Direction to Royal Blood? Royal Blood are a band not a group. Who decides #thebrits winners anyway?

There simply is no accounting for taste.
