The name Larry Stylinson was created during the beginnings of One Direction, and now, ten years later, it is still seen popping up online today.
Larry Stylinson is the ship name for Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles, and was (and is still) used by fans of the two stars.
The name is so big that Louis Tomlinson himself has spoken out about how fans shipping the two together has affected him personally, and tainted their friendship.
Today, on September 28th, Larry Stylinson has begun trending on Twitter once again, and this time it is to celebrate Larry Stylinson day, proving that while the band may not be together anymore, their fans are still as dedicated as ever.
Why is Larry Stylinson trending on Twitter?
Larry Stylinson is currently trending on Twitter, and fans are posting pictures and tweets of Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles.
It appears that the reason for this is because today, September 28th is “Larry Stylinson Day”.
“Larry Stylinson” is the ship name for Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles, and over the years has been a topic of debate in the One Direction fandom, with the stars themselves even weighing in.
Louis Tomlinson spoke out about Larry Stylinson back in 2017, and said:
“A certain amount of the fans drew up this conspiracy. When it first came around I was with Eleanor, and it actually felt a little bit disrespectful to Eleanor, who is my girlfriend now. I’m so protective over things like that, about the people I love.”
“It created this atmosphere between the two of us where everyone was looking into everything we did. It took away the vibe you get off anyone. It made everything, I think on both fences, a little bit more unapproachable.”
What is Larry Stylinson Day?
It all began when Louis and Harry became firm friends in the early beginnings of One Direction being formed, and even lived together.
Fans of the band began “shipping” the two singers together, and even now many fans speculate over the nature of their relationship.
“Larry Stylinson” has even made its way into popular culture, and a scene in the television show “Euphoria” depicted an animated re enactment of a Larry Stylinson fanfiction.
Fans have also been using the green and blue heart emojis on Twitter to show their appreciation for Larry Stylinson, with each colour representing one of the boys.
