HBO series Euphoria was released earlier this year and become a source of controversy because it showed two members of One Direction enjoying an intimate and steamy moment together.
In the episode of Euphoria, Zendaya’s character Rue narrated some intense fan-fiction (graphic in nature) about Larry Stylinson. Larry Stylinson is the fictional romance that happened between Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles. A number of fans wrote on social media, where they criticized the scene that was defined as disrespectful.
However, as it happens, Louis Tomlinson was also among those who were rattled. The singer recently gave an interview to the Guardian. He was asked about the conspiracy that states that Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles – band members of One Direction – were involved in a secret relationship.
Louis Tomlinson responded by saying, ‘I know, culturally, it’s interesting, but I’m just a bit tired of it.’ When he addressed the particular animated scene from Euphoria, he said that he was frustrated. He said, ‘Again, I get the cultural intention behind that. But I think…It just felt a little bit…No, I’m not going to lie, I was p***ed off. It annoyed me that a big company would get behind it.’
This is not the first time that the One Direction band member has spoken on this issue. He has also referred to these theories of his relationship with Styles as ‘the biggest load of bulls*** I’ve ever heard’ on Twitter. During his interview to The Sun, he said, ‘When it first came around, I was with Eleanor, and it actually felt a little bit disrespectful to Eleanor, who is my girlfriend now. I’m so protective over things like that, about the people I love. It created this atmosphere between the two of us where everyone was looking into everything we did. It took away the vibe you get off anyone. It made everything, I think on both fences, a little bit more unapproachable.’
Actor Barbie Ferreira played Kat Hernandez in Euphoria and said, ‘When I first read the script, that was the first thing that popped out to me because I can relate to that as a 22-year-old woman who lived through the One Direction age. It’s such a reality for so many people, and so many children and teens that are fans just have this escapist world. You completely give yourself to this persona of a person you don’t even know, or five guys, and imaging the way they interact the escaping from your own reality. It’s really interesting to me because I was definitely a part of that, where I wanted to escape my own life and focus on others because it was easier and felt more meaningful.’
