One Direction's Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan have hit out at trolls who send them 'disgusting' messages on WhatsApp today, challenging them to a rap battle on Twitter.

This isn't the first time the 1D fellas have been forced to speak out on social media about their privacy being at risk, after Nialler previously spoke out about how 'this shit is unreal' when a  'fan' (side note: we use the term loosely) took a picture of him asleep on a plane.

But it's Louis Tommo leading the brigade this time around, taking to Twitter to his 23.2million followers to vent his frustrations over the horrible messages.

He wrote: "Time to change my number .. Getting some disgusting stuff on what's app... Losers !", to which Niall responded: "me too mate . Horrific Some of the things people are saying ."

Quite obviously this isn't OK, and not only should people that Niall and Louis didn't give their numbers too *not* have them and be texting them, but the fact that they're sending 'horrific' things makes the whole situation even worse.

Responding to Niall on Twitter, Louis wrote: " maybe we should challenge them to a rap battle and destroy them in 64 bars ?"

By the sound of things, the lads are taking this whole situation pretty well, but it's safe to say One Direction fans weren't particularly happy about it either - trending #RespectLouis worldwide on Twitter for hours.

Still, what do you reckon? Pretty awful scenes or what? Discuss with us over on our Twitter - and then give us a follow on Instagram whilst you're at it.
