One Direction‘s Harry Styles and Taylor Swift have been enjoying some time off from touring during the holiday season. They celebrated her birthday in England, they got inked at a tattoo parlor in Los Angeles, they warmed up with hot chocolate after hitting the ski slopes in Utah.
Then, in a completely shocking turn of events that no one could have anticipated, they shared a New Year’s Eve smooch as the clock struck midnight. The nerve of these two.
Grainy cell phone pics and shaky video of their kiss spread like wildfire. Horrible, offensive, heartbreaking wildfire.
After spotting some hysterical tweets (including gems from fans who believe Styles is using Swift as a beard to hide his romantic relationship with his bandmate, Louis Tomlinson) we couldn’t help ourselves but hit up the “Haylor” tag on Tumblr to enjoy some delicious overreactions to the midnight kiss. It’s quickly joining the “Robsten” tag as an all-time favorite.
Some fans wrote letters, using Swift’s lyrics to appeal to her sympathies.
Then there were fans who use Swift’s lyrics in a… different way.
