It's been a while since the 1D fandom have had a reactionary trending topic. But after Liam Payne's comments in Attitude magazine over the problems he and the band have had with certain fan behaviour, it was apparently time for Directioners everywhere to start owning up to things they think they've done wrong.
#onedirectionimsorryfor i think we are all sorry for focusing on your sexulity more then your music— Ruth // PLS NIALL (@pop_ruth) September 11, 2015
The One Direction fandom is one of the biggest and most passionate in the world, and the "Larry Stylinson" faction is a big part of that; so a lot of Directioners have taken Liam's comments on the rumours to heart, and #onedirectionimsorryfor has been trending all night.
They're sorry for not focusing on the important work the band are doing.
Sometimes they can be a bit protective.

And sometimes that carries on beyond a joke.
Sometimes they turn the boys' quirks into in-jokes.

They make bizarre yet hilarious photo edits like, all the time.
Seriously, this is a regular thing.
Sometimes they read made-up stories on Tumblr and take them as fact.
Some made a silly mistake as a kid.

Some continuously make the exact same mistake.
