The distinct lack of chill demonstrated by Directioners is second to none. This is a highly emotional time for fans and some of them have turned their misplaced rage toward Liam Payne.
Granted, Liam has been on thin-ice with the fandom ever since posting a photo of the band holding a poster with Zayn's face covered up.
This has prompted some to conclude that Liam knew of Zayn's departure well before fans did.
Post-Zayn exit, Liam posted a cryptic message to his 20 million followers which both confused and annoyed fans.
