After his One Direction bandmates, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson, were caught up in a leaked video controversy, Liam Payne tweeted an apology to fans all over the world about the ‘stupid’ joint video.
This is why Liam Payne is the best. One Direction has been the center of attention recently and not for their music. The band’s own Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson have been under major scrutiny due to a leaked video showing the two rolling up a cigarette and joking about “illegal substances.” Now, Liam Payne has come out of the woodwork and apologized for Zayn and Louis’ “stupid” decision and says they have a lot of “growing up” to do!
Liam Payne Apologizes For ‘Stupid’ Joint Video
Zayn and Louis joke about certain illegal substances in the video and Louis revealed: “One very very important factor of Zayn’s warm up of course if Mary J herself.” Upon the video leak of Zayn and Louis allegedly smoking a “joint,” One Direction fans everywhere were outraged at the band’s recent conduct.
Liam Payne spoke out on the controversy on May 31 in a series of tweets, where he apologized for the band’s misstep.
“I love my boys and maybe things have gone a little sideways I apologise for that,” Liam tweeted. “We are only in our 20’s we all do stupid things at this age.”
What a fine gentleman, that Liam! He also said that because they were young, they still had some growing up to do: “We all have a lot of growing up to do in an extreme circumstance I’m not making excuse but it’s fact we are gunna fall short somewhere.”
Liam eased the worry of One Direction fans and thanked them for their continued support and unwavering love. “Hopefully we stand the test of time an get it right in the end I don’t take this for granted and im extremely grateful to be here doing this,” Liam tweeted.
This just goes to show that Liam is very mature for his age and takes his fans very seriously. We love that Liam is choosing to not let the scandal affect the band, because what would life be without One Direction?
Zayn Malik & Louis Tomlinson Under Fire
In addition to the “joint” controversy, Louis and Zayn are under fire for another reason. In the video, it appears that Louis also says the “N-word!” Before Liam tweeted his apology, Harry Styles revealed his thoughts about the video and said the video was “stupid and reckless,” according to The Sun.
At this time, One Direction is looking to take down whoever leaked the video. “The matter is in the hands of our lawyers,” the rep for the band told HollywoodLife.com.
Let’s hope the boys of One Direction can stick out this controversy and not let it tear them apart!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Liam’s apology? Should he have had to do that? Will the boys stick together through this scandal? Let me know!
