Well, boy band fans have achieved a new level of creepy. One fan recently sat next to One Direction's Niall Horan on a flight from London to Chicago. And while Niall declined taking a selfie (because he was feeling ill), he did not explicitly deny a fan from taking a photo of him during his in-flight nap.
The next thing he knew, a picture of him sleeping had been posted to the fan's social media accounts. The caption reads:
And to sum up the PERFECT European adventure, I sat directly next to Niall from One Direction for 9 hours on my flight home from London last night. He was sick and asked for no selfies, but here is a pic I snapped when he was sleeping lol he was so friendly! Talked about Ireland, LSE, lolla, and more. Not a British Duke... But an Irish Popstar will do thanks for treating me so well, Europe!
Yes, "No selfies" definitely translates into "Please take pictures of me whilst I sleep." Unsurprisingly, Niall was not so thrilled that images of his airplane nap were all over the internet.
Of course, many other, less creepy 1D fans were sympathetic about the incident.
This is the life you lead, Niall. It isn't easy being cute and famous.
