The trend - #CANCELYOURENGAGEMENTZAYN – began trending on Tuesday afternoon (7 July) and quickly prompted a flood of replies both from those who agreed with the hashtag and those who were horrified.
Former One Direction star Zayn has been engaged to Little Mix singer Perrie since August 2013 but they've both said they are in no rush to walk down the aisle.
It seems no one is quite sure who started the hashtag but plenty of people wanted to have their say on how they felt about it…
And most were very unhappy:
why can't you just let zayn be happy and respect his relationship, y'all are being so disrespectful.— stephanie (@p0laroidhs) July 7, 2015
you have no right to control their personal lives, just let the couple be, my goodness you don't even know them #CANCELYOURENGAGEMENTZAYN— nic loves louis (@criminiallou) July 7, 2015
#cancelyourengagementzayn very mature, guys. do I need to remind you that this is exactly why he left? the disrespect is real.— nana (@sweetbunstyles) July 7, 2015
Sick people, why is this trending?— Safin Barzani (@SafBarzani) July 7, 2015
If Zayn cancels the engagement, he's never gonna be yours anyways.
We all know that Zayn loves Perrie so much, so instead of throwing shades at them let's just be happy for them— CaKe (@1dchristine) July 7, 2015
what kind of trend is this? don't you even know how zayn would feel if he sees this? #CANCELYOURENGAGEMENTZAYN— krizelle (@ayekrizzy) July 7, 2015
He's 22 which means that he's an adult and can take his own decisions! #CANCELYOURENGAGEMENTZAYN— Nour (@Nour_Ismail8) July 7, 2015
Perrie recently admitted that she was tiring of questions about when the couple's wedding would be announced: "I am sick of getting asked when is the wedding, when is the wedding? I'll get married when I am bloody ready! Amen!"
In November last year, Zayn said: "We haven't really thought about the wedding side of things yet, or how we're going to do it. We're just kind of engaged, we just haven't had time to organise things like that."
