In the wake of his worst scandal to date, Louis Tomlinson has come out and thanked his fans for their support.
Tomlinson and One Direction mate Zayn Malik were filmed smoking pot in a video that leaked online this week, while audio appears to catch them making racial and homophobic slurs as well.
"Massive love to all our fans!! So incredibly supportive! Loveeeee," Tomlinson Tweeted yesterday.
But that response isn't satisfactory to some.
Many don’t seem to care about the marijuana use (it’s not exactly unusual in the young pop music scene; heck, Miley Cyrus openly loves weed), but Tomlinson said the N-word and used “gay” in a negative context.
As a result, “#apologizelouistomlinson” began trending on Twitter soon after the artist refused to show remorse online.
Malik, meanwhile, has yet to say anything at all since the firestorm began; while a One Direction rep simply said via statement:
"The matter is in the hands of our lawyers."
What do YOU think, THGers? Should Louis and Zayn apologize for their words and/or actions?
