One Direction star Zayn Malik has been bombarded with death threats by angered Israelis after posting a #FreePalestine message on Twitter. 

The 21-year-old, who was brought up a Muslim in Bradford, Yorkshire, shared the #FreePalestine hashtag earlier today to his 13million followers, who retweeted it 140,000 times. 

However, moments after the post appeared, Zayn began receiving messages telling him to ‘kill himself’ and one even read: ‘Let me kill you’.

Zayn, who is engaged to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, is not the first celebrity to wade into the conflict in Gaza. 

Pop singer Rihanna posted a message only a few weeks ago to her 36.4million followers in support of Palestine.
