Louis Tomlinson + Zayn Malik Caught Smoking a Joint in Leaked Video [NSFW]
UPDATE: The video has been removed from its original source.
A video has leaked of One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik smoking what appears to be a joint in the back of a van while talking about marijuana and making fun of their own tour book. Could this be the band’s biggest scandal yet?
The five-minute long video was seemingly filmed by Louis, so we’re scratching our heads wondering just how the video leaked if it was on the boy bander’s phone. However it happened, it’s out in the world now, and there’s no escaping it — the two boys discuss in lengthy detail their marijuana-smoking habits.
“So here we are, leaving Peru,” Louis’ disembodied voice says in the vid. “Joint lit. Happy days… What do you think, Zayn?”
When a policeman passes by on a motorcycle, Louis yells at the window, “One nil b—! Look at this b—… He’s having a look. He’s thinking, ‘I’m sure I can smell an illegal substance in there.’ And he’s hit the nail on the head.”
Later in the video Zayn begins to reference Kid Rock’s latest book, comparing it to the release of One Direction’s own recent book published for their Where We Are Tour.
“Hard back, black, simple writing,” he said of the country singer’s book. “No bulls—. No like, ‘My favorite color’s blue,’” he added in a mocking tone, presumably making fun of his band’s book, which includes many of each members’ ‘favorites.’
Yikes! Louis and Zayn, there’s no talking your way out of this one. Particularly on Louis’ derogatory use of the n-word — whatever statement he or the band makes regarding the situation doesn’t erase his use of the slur.
Dan Wootton, a journalist for the Sun, reported on Twitter that the boys’ lawyers are taking care of the leak.
A spokesman for 1D on Zayn and Louis video now online: "This matter is in the hands of our lawyers."
