So this just happened.
Basically, One Direction are performing on The Today show this morning, but Zayn Malik is ill so they are refusing to be called One Direction.
Liam's comment has kind of melted the internet's heart a bit.

As many One Direction fans have pointed out, this is a major incident.
Obviously, #GetWellSoonZayn is now a Global trend.
We need answers.
"we introduced ourselves as Liam, Niall, Harry and Louis. It's because we are not One Direction without Zayn" http://t.co/FAK8kIPAiT— KITTY (@_zarrydali)November 17, 2014
