Zayn’s sister Christmas Tree

Zayn Malik’s sister was targeted by vile trolls who objected to a photo of a Christmas tree she uploaded to Instagram.

The former One Direction star’s 14-year-old sibling was subject to cruel comments and death threats on her Instagram profile after sharing a festive snap – with people warning the dual-faith family of "retribution".

While Zayn’s dad follows Islam, his mum Trisha was born a Christian – which means his father has made the decision to celebrate Muslim festivals like Eid, and Christmas.

The singer’s sister Safaa was swamped with comments from online bullies, who also branded their family a "disgrace to the faith".

The teenager has removed the negative comments from the post, which has still been liked over 12,300 times.

"Christmas is very important to Trisha because she was brought up a Christian," a source told the Daily Star. "The hate that Safaa received was just disgusting."

It comes after Zayn – who shocked fans with a surprise Taylor Swift collaboration this week – has spoken out in support of former bandmate Louis Tomlinson.

The 1D star lost his mum on Wednesday after a battle with leukaemia, and despite the pair losing touch after Zayn quit the band a year before they went on an extended hiatus, the Pillowtalk singer has reached out on Twitter.

In a thoughtful post, Gigi Hadid’s boyfriend wished his former bandmate well and said that his mum would have been "proud" .

He wrote: "Louis_Tomlinson love you bro! All of your family is in my prayers. proud of your strength and know your mum is too x"
