Producer Naughty Boy uploaded a picture of him and Zayn Malik on Wednesday morning, provoking a Twitter feud with Malik’s former One Direction bandmate Louis Tomlinson.

The picture shows Malik and Naughty Boy in the recording studio in the wake of Malik’s departure from One Direction and announcement of a solo career in March.

It appears Tomlinson didn’t like the filter used in the photo, because he took to Twitter to mock the choice.

Naughty Boy, who follows Tomlinson, fired back with a shot of his own.

Tomlinson didn’t stop there.

That’s when Malik chimed in, eliciting either outrage or praise from 1D fans.

Malik’s new music partner took it a step further, dissing Tomlinson while name-dropping a few of his clients.

Tomlinson threw the last dart:

In March, Malik released his first solo single with Naughty Boy, titled “I Won’t Mind” less than a week after quitting One Direction. While the other band members had been supportive, it appears Tomlinson isn’t happy with Malik’s new direction.
