A One Direction fanzine has been criticised after it featured a “voodoo doll” of TV presenter Caroline Flack who dated one of the band’s members, Harry Styles
The US magazine featured a picture of Flack with pins sticking out of her, highlighting her so-called “crows’ feet” and “dirty blonde dye job”.
It criticised the 32-year-old for dating Styles, who is 18, saying “date boys your age, not your shoe size” and added: “Note: zero engagement rings. Because no one wants to be with her.”
Irish TV and radio presenter Conor Behan said on Twitter: “This article for One Direction fans slating Caroline Flack is hideously sexist and has gone viral for obvious reasons.”
