Gordon in the morning: Who saw this coming?

Pete Samson is, as we know, the grandly titled "US editor" of The Sun, although it's not entirely clear what that means. Especially since his contribution this morning is to report on death threats being made against One Direction.

That's the One Direction who had the name first, not the One Direction who Simon Cowell gifted a stolen name to. Just to make that clear.

Yes, the Cowell variant's fanbase have decided to "help" the delicate legal process involved in deciding who owns a trademark:

The US band’s frontman Sean O’Leary said the worst had been aimed at his dad Dan, who manages them.

Sean, 18, said: “There has been so much hate mail, like people threatening to cut our b***s off.

“The one that stands out for me is a girl saying she wanted to kill my father.”
Surely if cut the bollocks off the American band, it'd be even harder to tell the difference between them and the British version?
