Wait, did Harry Styles just say he’s into daddies?

Harry Styles has sent gay fans into shock after seeming to like a sign reading “Daddy?” at a Los Angeles Halloween show.

During the show – which fans dubbed “Harryween” – Styles was seen pointing out a sign reading “Daddy?” held by none other than former child actor turned social media icon Chris Olsen.

Pointing at the sign, which was projected onto the big screen as the crowd screamed, Styles simply said “yes”.

“Is that what you were screaming for?” Styles said at the show.

“I fear that there may be a communication breakdown from this distance, but just know… Yes,” he added to the crowd.

The very mention of the word “daddy” in the same sentence as “Harry Styles” has sent fans reeling, with one saying on Twitter: “Good morning to Harry Styles replying ‘yes?’ to a sign saying ‘daddy?’ not one, not two, but THREE f**king times only.”

Fans also lost their minds at Styles’ Halloween costume, with the pop icon performing at the Los Angeles show on Monday (31 October) dressed as Danny Zuko from Grease.

The 28-year-old singer took to the stage in a leather jacket and jeans, paired with slicked-back black hair and a sleeveless top showing off his tattoos.

Styles also slayed the audience with a rendition of “Hopelessly Devoted to You” from the 1978 musical.

“Harry Styles’ vocals in ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’ as Danny Zuko are insane, I’ll never stop talking about it,” one fan wrote.

Another said: “Harry dressed up as Danny Zuko while singing ‘Hopelessly Devoted…’ from Grease is something I never knew I needed until now.”

Styles has previously hit back at claims of queerbaiting, and has stated that he has not felt the need to publicly label his sexuality.

Critics of the singer have regularly argued that Styles “queerbaits” his fans by adopting queer fashion trends and starring in gay roles without actually labelling himself as part of the LGBTQ+ community.

But, as the recent outing of Heartstopper star Kit Connor has proven, that term has been taken out of context and is now being used to potentially do harm to young, queer people.

Styles has previously rejected this argument in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, saying that he is simply not public about his relationships.

“Sometimes people say: ‘You’ve only publicly been with women’, and I don’t think I’ve publicly been with anyone,” he said.

“If someone takes a picture of you with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re choosing to have a public relationship or something.”
