MANILA, Philippines – Looks like boyband One Direction’s image might be in trouble.
The popular British group is currently entangled in a controversy after a video showing two of its members, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlison, smoking a “roll-up cigarette” went viral on the Internet.
In the article and video provided by MailOnline, Zayn and Louis were not only seen smoking, but also joking and laughing about marijuana or “joint” as it’s called in the 5-minute video. The boys were inside a car in Peru for their concert last April 27.
Louis was also heard making fun of the police officer they heard from outside their SUV.
Fans worldwide, including those in the Philippines, were not pleased with the video but said they still love the group and will continue to support them. In fact, the hashtags Zayn and Louis, #DontBan1DFromPhilippines, and #NiallRaised300kWriteAboutThat pertaining to band member Niall Horan raising money for charity at a football match recently trended on Twitter worldwide.
