The remaining members of One Direction had plenty of good will for Zayn Malik when he announced in March that he was quitting the wildly popular boy band to be a “normal 22-year-old.” “We’re really sad to see Zayn go,” they wrote in a statement, “but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future.”

Bad news, One Direction fans—that may not be the case anymore, as Malik had some harsh words for former bandmate Louis Tomlinson on Wednesday. Since Malik’s departure, Tomlinson has butted heads with music producer Naughty Boy, whom Tomlinson accused of antagonizing 1D fans after Naughty Boy released solo Malik material he produced not long after news of the split broke.

But after Tomlinson appeared to diss a photo of Malik and Naughty Boy that the producer tweeted Wednesday, Malik decided he’d had enough. “Remember when you had a life and stopped making b-tchy comments about mine?” he tweeted at Tomlinson.

So much for keeping things civil, boys.
