Zayn Malik from One Direction has dared to go where Rihanna chickened out ... he just tweeted, "#FreePalestine."
The 21-year-old singer -- who grew up Muslim -- posted his comment Sunday night and lots of followers quickly reacted. One posted, "Are you still alive? You should be dead by now and kill yourself." Another said, "You and your family need to die."
Someone -- apparently in Israel -- wrote, "U have fans in #Israel. It broke me that one of my idols wand (sic) me to die."
Malik -- unlike Rihanna -- didn't back down. She removed an identical tweet 8 minutes after it was posted.

Team Germany may have Rihanna ... but Team USA has PARIS HILTON! And Charlie Sheen! And Chris Brown! And Tyga ... just ask Jermaine Jones!
The World Cup star (who scored that epic goal against Portugal) got an invite to Paris Hilton's epic beach house party in Malibu this weekend ... and partied with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
Jones and the gang partied 'til the sun went down ... and funny enough, that's when Paris LEFT her own party and got on a private jet bound for Ibiza.
As for Jones, he has been on a celebrity tear since he got back from Brazil -- besides the Hilton party, he's kicked it with huge stars like Mike Tyson, Pau Gasol and Matt Barnes.

Justin Bieber made it to the Young Hollywood Awards Sunday just by the tiny hairs of his chinny chin chin.
Justin's been working on the stache for around 3 years ... by our count.
He's no Burt Reynolds.
This Time It's a Lambo!
7/28/2014 6:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Let's all take a moment to congratulate Sean Kingston on his repo hat trick ... because Sunday night in Hollywood, he got a third car repossessed.
Kingston's white Lamborghini was parked near the intersection of Hollywood and Vine ... until it was lifted up on a flatbed and towed away. The singer is never seen in the video.
Sources connected with the singer tell TMZ ... the Lambo was a lease and Sean hadn't made payments for 6 months.
This has happened to Kingston not once, but twice in the last few months. On March 26, Kingston had his Bentley repo'd outside a swanky Hollywood hotel ... while he was inside. A huge fight broke out when his boys tried to stop it ... but the car was towed away nonetheless.
The week before that, his Mercedes Benz G-Class SUV met the same fate after he fell three months behind on the payments.
We reached out to Kingston ... so far no word back.
I'm Done with L.A.
Wanna Buy My Home for $100 Mil?
7/28/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Petra Ecclestone -- the fashion designer and daughter of a Formula One billionaire who plunked down $85 Mil on Aaron Spelling's mega-mansion just 3 years ago -- wants to unload the property, but ONLY to someone who will pay more than the most expensive house in L.A.
Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Ecclestone and her husband are moving back to London and want to unload the 57,000 square foot Holmby Hills estate. She's given 5 top L.A. realtors a secret listing ... aka a pocket listing.
Petra -- who came to L.A. hoping to be the next big socialite thing -- bought the mansion from Candy Spelling for $85 mil. Petra spent a fortune redoing the joint, and now she's got a price ... and it's astronomical.
Petra wants AT LEAST as much as the most expensive property in L.A. -- it's called Fleur de Lys, and it sold in March for $102 MIL. To give you an idea ... it has a ballroom that accommodates 650 rich souls.
We're guessing part of the problem might be the fact that Petra and her hubby have one kid, and maybe 57,000 square feet is a little too big.
Wrestling Star Buff Bagwell
My New Move is Porn
7/28/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Buff Bagwell in the Buff ... is what we think Vivid will title what could be his first XXX flick.
Buff -- who starred on "Gigolos" -- caught the eye of Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch, who calls a BB film an "absolute blockbuster."
Hirsch and Buff met recently to hammer out a deal ... and there was a third person in the room -- Buff's wife, Judy.
Judy has got to be the envy of every wild husband in America. In addition to flirting with porn, Buff has intimated he has sex with the women for whom he gigolos. And she's cool with that, too.

A cowboy hat is pretty much an extension to the body of any male country star.

I'm Too Broke To Pay My Ex
I Live On $6K A Month
7/28/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Terrence Howard's ex-wife threatened to blackmail him to get a RIDICULOUS amount of spousal support -- or so he claims -- leaving him with a scant $6K a month ... and now he's gunning to undo the injustice.
Terrence filed new court docs ... asking a judge to throw out his divorce settlement with Michelle Howard. He says they were only married a year and he was extorted and blackmailed into signing the settlement.
Michelle's not backing down, claiming he owes her $325K in spousal support.
Terrence claims he could never pay her that money ... because he only takes home $5,878 a month.
Howard claims the balance of his earnings are earmarked for another ex-wife, Lori McMasters, to pay spousal and child support.
Howard says he's actually an employee on Lori's payroll -- his Hollywood movie money goes directly to her ... and she cuts him his monthly check.
The single life ... so underrated.
Ex-'Bad Girls Club' Chick
Popped for DWI & Drugs
7/28/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Florina "Flo" Kaja is still a 'Bad Girl' to cops in NY, where she got busted for DWI and drug possession -- but not before she tried to dupe 'em with the oldest move in the book ... TMZ has learned
Kaja -- from Season 4 of "The Bad Girls Club" -- was stopped by cops in Yonkers, NY on Monday night for making an illegal U-turn. According to police, she appeared to be under the influence ... acting erratic and fidgety.
Cops say they found a bag of weed and another substance they believe to be cocaine. Officers say Flo also gave them a fake name, which -- as every delinquent teen knows -- NEVER works.
Flo's been charged with possession of a controlled substance and DWI -- and cops say she also had an outstanding warrant for harassment.
Yeah, she bad.
'Fifty Shades of Grey' Trailer
Hardcore BDSM Crowd Left Limp
7/28/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The first trailer for mommy porn "Fifty Shades of Grey" might be exciting some lonely fans -- but serious BDSMers aren't ready to peg the movie for success ... because to them it kinda looks like amateur hour in the ole dungeon.
Don't ask how, but TMZ got in tight with some members of the Threshold Society -- a BDSM/leather club in L.A. -- and they say overall reaction to the trailer is ... where's the good stuff???
Threshold's corporate secretary (for reals) Azurell says the buzz from members is there are tons of other books and movies that better reflect their lifestyle -- and based on this first taste ... 'Grey' looks kinda "vanilla."
Azurell adds ... the movie could use more of their specialties -- light bondage, caning, needle play, fire play, and pegging. We're not telling you to Google that last one. Especially at work.
Over at Hollywood's Bar Sinister ... pro dom Feenix says 'Grey' has gotten a rise out of people in their 40s. He says more middle-aged couples are lining up for their loft area. Think VIP ... for people who want a good spanking. Or a bad one.
Seriously, don't look up pegging.

Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the deal ... tell us Spike execs contacted TNA President Dixie Carter late last week to break the news -- and the following day Carter informed members of her inner circle.
TNA's current deal with Spike reportedly runs through October. It's unclear at this point when "Impact Wrestling" will stop airing on Spike.
We're told there's no bad blood, and Spike gave TNA such advance notice so it would have time to shop for a new TV deal.
TNA's show debuted on Spike TV in October 2005 -- and helped the league rise to #2 on the wrestling scene … behind the WWE.
We've called TNA and Spike for comment ... so far, no word back.
