A disturbing ‘#CutForZouis’ is now trending worldwide on Twitter after a leaked video showing One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson smoking what looked like a marijuana blunt leaked on Tuesday.
No one knows whether it was the boy band’s fans that started the trend, but the important part of it all is that teenagers are posting pics of self-harm, apparently in protest at the way the squeaky-clean image of the boys have been tarnished.
Of course this is not the first time trends like this have erupted on Twitter. Last year, ‘cutforbieber’ became the no. 1 worldwide trend on Twitter after Justin Bieber was photographed smoking weed for the first time.
In addition to the sick #CutForZouis trend, other funny hashtags like ‘#zouispassmethatblunt’ and ‘Best Joint Ever’ (in mockery of One Direction hit Best Song Ever ) have become worldwide trends.
