simon cowell says zayn is rude

Simon Cowell is NOT happy with Zayn Malik!

As we previously reported, the former One Direction member threw major shade during his interview with Fader magazine when he called his bandmate's music "generic." Ouch!

This comment obviously didn't go over well with Gigi Hadid's man's former mentor, as the X Factor judge dished:

"It is a bit rude to the people who wrote all the hits with them. And to the other band members. I mean they all wrote a lot of the stuff."

We totally agree, Simon! In fact, prior to leaving the group back in March, Malik had cowritten 11 songs versus frenemy Louis Tomlinson who helped pen 38 tracks. Whoa!

Though Simon is clearly on Team 1D, it seems he hasn't given much thought about Zayn since he quit the boyband.

He continued:

"As soon as he left we sorted him out with a label who really were enthusiastic about him and then my loyalty was back with the boys."

What do YOU think?! Does Simon have a point??

SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!
