Liam Payne fans are cry-laughing at his TikTok about Zayn Malik quitting One Direction.
But Directioners don’t know what to make of Liam’s TikTok about Zayn Malik quitting the band, and whether they should laugh or cry.
The ‘Sunshine’ singer, whose former bandmates are Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, unexpectedly posted a clip of himself miming to the voiceover: “Are we absolutely sure what direction we’re going?”
He wrote over the video: “POV the meeting after Zayn quit… forgot I had this in drafts.”
Hoping fans didn’t take it too seriously, he added in the caption: “Forgot I made this a while ago, hope you see the funny side.”
That didn’t stop Directioners sharing their shock at Liam’s vid, with thousands taking to the comments to share their reactions.
“Liam chose payne,” one person replied.
“I thought this was a fan account help me gosh,” added another stunned fan.
“Liam you did not just,” wrote a third.
“None of us are getting over this - jaw = on the floor,” accurately commented someone else.
“No way he posted this,” and “I can’t believe this is real,” are also frequent occurrences in the comment box.
Zayn sensationally quit 1D in 2015, with the rest of the boys embarking on solo careers less than a year later.
