Zayn responds to Brexit: “We need to pull together now to make it work”

Singer is "very sad to see society so fragmented"

Artists have been voicing their opinions regarding the outcome of the EU referendum which saw the UK vote to leave the European Union.

Zayn Malik is the latest artist to take to Twitter to voice his anger over the result, writing “It’s very sad to see society so fragmented esp in terms of regions, generations and class. We need to pull together now to make it work.”

He also wrote “People gonna wake the fuck up yet ?” before ending with “As humans . Big love.” Other artists have been voicing their concerns and anger over the decision.


Speaking to NME at Glastonbury Festival, Two Door Cinema Club frontman Alex Trimble said: “It’s the younger generation that this is going to affect. I guess they were outnumbered on the day by a bunch of backwards-thinking old people.”


Bandmate Sam Halliday added: “It’s way too complex an issue for the general public to vote on. I don’t know enough about it to warrant a vote, to be fair. I just think the leave camp has been picking debates that sound nice but is clearly not true.”

Bastille meanwhile called the decision to leave the EU “the worst news you could imagine”. Glastonbury Festival has also released a statement about Brexit. “Everyone is repeating they have no words/But we’re full of them,” it began, before stating today is “a day that none of us have felt less British.”

It continued: “As those around us crack open breakfast wine and shout for revolt/I think we’re pretty safe in the knowledge that it’s nobody’s here fault/So let’s trudge on through the mud/And sing out loud our protest songs.”
