The hashtag #stopoverworkingourboys swept Twitter on Tuesday, as thousands of One Direction fans took to social media to bemoan the plight of the millionaire pop band.

The band, comprising of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, have an estimated personal combined wealth of £25 million - making them the second wealthiest musicians in the UK under 30 years of age.

With millions of people still being victims of forced labour globally today, others wanted to remind the fans, known as Directioners, that they may need to put their concerns into perspective.

Much has been said recently about the members of 1D potentially parting ways, rumours that have been dismissed by the band and their producer and founder Simon Cowell.

So the"heartbroken" fans took it upon themselves to tell the world, and the band's management, that the band really deserve a rest.
