Zayn Malik's mother has joined Twitter to lash out at online bullies targeting her son.

The One Direction singer has been reeling since trolls began to send the star cruel remarks about his Muslim religion and Asian heritage.

UK newspaper The Sun reports Tricia Malik has now signed onto the social networking website to defend him.

"Hope you're happy now Zayn noticed your tweet! You can't even imagine how it made him upset, you psycho," she is quoted writing one user.

The concerned mother has already amassed close to 40,000 followers.

Zayn Malik quit Twitter for a short period last year following outlandish accusations he received on the micro-blog calling him a terrorist.

His mother, 41, said she constantly tells her son to ignore the online abuse.

"My son is strong enough," she wrote.

The matriarch's remarks come just days after reports her son has been at odds with bosses on One Direction's ongoing Take Me Home world tour.

The Sun reported the group's minders are worried about how forgetful he is and they've told him to "get his act together".

Bandmate Liam Payne recently confessed Zayn's spotty memory has been a problem in the past.

"Zayn is the most likely to forget his passport, and has done a number of times," he admitted.

One Direction are currently touring Europe and will travel to North America next month.

The trek will take the band to Australia and New Zealand in September and October before they wrap in Japan November 2 and 3.
