Simon Cowell has been cruelly mocked after he broke his back in a freak electric bicycle accident.
The music mogul, 60, has fallen victim to some of boy band One Direction’s fans.
They aired their grievances against Simon, whose former record label used to manage the group, on Twitter with some even calling his shocking accident ‘karma’.
Simon Cowell abuse
Simon left his once fully owned label Syco last month.
The news came just days after former One Directions singer Louis Tomlinson also parted ways with the label.
He was the only one to remain with the label after bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik each left at earlier dates.
Fellow X Factor band Little Mix also parted with the label in 2018.
Rumours have swirled for years that Simon and One Direction members didn’t get along.
And now many loyal fans are mocking his bike accident online.
One user tweeted: “Simon fell from an electric bike 28 days after Louis left Syco hahahaaha tell me that 28 is not a lucky number #louistomlinson #SimonCowell.”
Another user shared: News: “Simon Cowell broke his back testing an electric bike. Me: @onedirection the job is done. Well done, people! #karma #simoncowell.”
And a third argued: “Now Simon Cowell will know how One Direction felt having to carry the music industry on their backs.”
Yet another chimed in with: “Simon Cowell breaking his back is karma for how he treated Little Mix and One Direction.”
However, not everyone was on their side.
Several came out to defend Simon.
One user tweeted: “I can’t believe people are happy about the fact Simon Cowell has broken his back. Bet the same people write their ‘be kind’ statuses too.
“Absolutely ridiculous #SimonCowell hope he recovers soon, don’t think people realise how old he is!”

And another appalled user shared: “If you don’t want to lose any more faith in humanity, don’t read why Simon Cowell is trending.
“The one direction sociopaths are celebrating him breaking his back because he made their band rich and famous???”
Simon has broken his silence regarding his biking accident.
The media mogul says he broke part of his back after testing out his new electric bike.
Sharing across his official social media channels, he penned: “Some good advice…
