(USA TODAY) -- Trending on Twitter: #RIPLarryShippers.

Who's Larry Shippers? Larry Shippers isn't a he so much as a subgroup of One Direction fans fantasizing about a romance between Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.

Unconfirmed rumors started out that 14 LarryShippers committed suicide after Crazy About One Direction, a documentary, aired on UK's Channel 4 Thursday night. Some fans claim the documentary made them appear to be "psychos." As of Friday morning, the number has jumped to 28, according to The Huffington Post. According to MSN Entertainment, the number jumped again to 42.

Bandmate Liam Payne took to Twitter in response, criticizing the documentary as being full of (expletive).

He tweeted, "Not really sure what's going on right now I just hope everyone's ok.

"Hearing some horrible things... Really hope this isn't true."

"Just so all of you know we love you guys and we know how dedicated you are and tbh we can't believe it that you guys spend all your time on us."

"We couldn't give a (expletive) what any documentary says. They're dramatised for entertainment and full of (expletive) anyway. We all know how hard you work for us and see it everyday at our shows."

"Let's all take a step back and think about what we/you have all achieved. You should be proud."

UK's Telegraph gives the documentary two out of five stars.
