Unless you’re a teenage girl or weird housewife you probably agree that One Direction suck--hopefully you’ve never even heard them. People like shitty boy bands though, and these annoying Brits are one of the only bands selling millions of records and selling out every tour date.
Of course being a pop sensation means being in the limelight and being under a microscope. While the boys are able to brush off the haters now that they’re rich and famous, singer Niall Horan wasn’t able to dodge one detractor: a squirrel. He was attacked by a rabid squirrel in a London park and tore up his knee. Niall had to get an operation to fix his jacked up knee, and is currently gimping around with a crutch--but still texting.
