VIDEO: Zayn Malik & Niall Horan Have Awkward Moment at AMAs 2016

Both Zayn Malik and Niall Horan were in attendance at last night’s 2016 American Music Awards, and it turns out, they did have a bit of an awkward interaction.

Twitter user @EverglowAnn recorded a moment where Niall, 23, walked by Zayn, 23, and they shook hands as he passed by. The moment appears a bit awkward, which you can see for yourself in the video below.

Of course, Zayn was once a member of Niall‘s band One Direction.

That same evening, Zayn threw a bit of shade at 1D during his New Artist of the Year award acceptance speech.

Watch the handshake below…

    If they shook hands, why did this Zayn guy felt the need to throw shade at them? Everyone’s needs to get over their issues

  • GreatCatSbee

    Zayn is such a pain

  • rilla

    Zayn’s the only one with issues from the looks of it. Niall seems friendly & civil enough, Zayn looks shocked at even being approached (well, it was “only his name” on the award…)

  • BigTwist

    That’s some weak shade if it was intended to be shade. I thought it was cute.

  • Amairany

    Was a damn joke. Get over it.

  • Gina

    When is this contrived public narrative of the boys hating each other gonna be over.

  • Malida

    I don’t think Zayn would have did anything if Niall didn’t go in and shake his hand.

    So many great photos of Zayn enjoying the AMA’s.
    This article making a mountain out of a molehill. They had a long chat backstage. Niall was holding up people behind him that were waiting to be seated. Niall & Zayn don’t have a nasty bone in their bodies! Don’t be led by the nose by the media!

  • Khazija

    You know nothing about what Zayn’s issues were with that band. No, Zayn is not obligated to fake friendship with people who mistreated him and are still exploiting his name. He had to deal with discrimination and so much abuse. There is so much people do not know. Then the smear campaign rampages on at Zayn’s expense.

    All Zayn implied that this was his first AMA win as a solo artist. I hope one day, when he is less restricted by contracts and people’s agendas, he can speak out more about what he experienced.

  • Khazija

    No, Zayn is a talented artist and genuine person having to deal with fake people.

  • GreatCatSbee

    You just defend him because he’s a muslim. Get real.

  • Khazija

    You are the one who gets real and needs to quit twisting around this card to attack his fans. No, I defend him because he is a good person and a talented musician who doesn’t deserve to deal with this kind of hatred/backlash.

  • GreatCatSbee

    You refuse any criticism about him and when nothing else works, you play the muslim card. Not everyone likes him, get over it.

  • Khazija

    You trash him and I defend him with the truth. People aren’t entitled to make derogatory remarks or engage in slander. Then people will defend him over it, deal with it. I am not playing a card. He is a Muslim and him winning an AMA was a big deal as far as breaking the mold. He also suffers a great deal of discrimination.

  • GreatCatSbee

    People discriminate him for being an arse. You make it about being a muslim to stuff him down their throats.

  • Khazija

    He is not an arse, you fall for the spin from the smear campaign hook, line, and sinker while supporting the real arses who are exploiting him. No, I acknowledge the Islamophobia and bigotry he has to deal with.

  • GreatCatSbee

    Like I said, you make this about him being a muslim, not about music.

  • GreatCatSbee

    Like I said, you make this about him being a muslim, not about music.

    What “shade” did he exactly throw at them? Zayn was merely surprised to win an AMA as a solo artist.

    Besides, simply shaking hands with someone doesn’t resolve any issues. It was just a contrived act on Niall’s behalf to portray himself as gracious. I don’t think Zayn expected that to happen.

  • An

    Well, I would be wary too if I was Zayn. He was not supported by Niall and was ignored by him after his departure from the band. Then, all of the sudden, Niall decides to show a public display of graciousness towards him.

  • Khazija

    I made this about his music and acknowledge what a victory it was for his community but you are spitefully spinning this around which speaks volumes about you.

  • GreatCatSbee

    *yawn* You’re as boring as him
