It's all pretty intense
The American One Direction suing the UK One Direction for 'stealing their name' have revealed they've been given death threats by UK 1D fans, and they're of the worst kind possible.
If you imagine the humanity of it, American One Direction have been threatened with.... spoons and carrots.

Er, but they have also been sent some quite horrible messages from a few mental Directioners.
The band's frontman Sean O'Leary has been sent some horrific notes about his dad Dan, the band's manager who spoke out about the lawsuit yesterday.
"There has been so much hate mail, like people threatening to cut our b***s off," The Sun reports Sean as saying.
“The one that stands out for me is a girl saying she wanted to kill my father.”

However, the lawsuit against UK One Direction for a million in damages and three times the profit made by Simon Cowell's group remains.
The world has gone mad. Let's cast our minds back to happier times when One Direction were having a dance off;
