The latest episode of Euphoria included a passionate animated love scene between Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.

The HBO drama – which is based on the Israeli mini-series of the same name – follows a group of high school students as they attempt to navigate life with drugs, sex, identity, love and friendship in the social media age.

It stars Zendaya, Maude Apatow, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Jacob Alordi, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Storm Reid, Hunter Schafer, Algee Smith, Sydney Sweeney, Austin Abrams and Colman Domingo.

The series has only released three episodes so far, but it’s received acclaim from critics for the cast’s performances, storytelling, visuals and approach to dark subjects such as sex, sexuality and addiction.

In the latest episode, titled Made You Look, Zendaya’s character Kat introduces audiences to Rue (Ferreira) a former internet star who became a viral sensation after producing sexual fan-fiction of Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.

During the opening scene, Kat says Rue is to blame for the “Larry Stylinson conspiracy theory, that Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson of One Direction are secretly fucking.”

Several fans were quick to upload the scene on Twitter – watch below.

For years, One Direction fans have ‘shipped’ Harry and Louis as a couple, and some have even uploaded videos on YouTube with ‘evidence’ to prove the two stars were having a secret relationship.

Despite this, Larry Stylinson (the name fans gave them, like Brangelina etc) shippers slammed Euphoria for airing the scene because it’s “disgusting and disrespectful” to Harry and Louis, with some even campaigning for the episode to be taken off HBO.

“FUCK euphoria,” said one fan. “That’s so disrespectful to both Harry & Louis. To know that this is going to blow up & they probably did it just to get their viewers up is 100x worse.”

Another wrote: “I am COMPLETELY AGAINST THIS. it doesn’t matter your views on Larry, whatever their relationship is, THIS IS DISRESPECTFUL TO THEM.”
