Who comes to the rescue to lighten the mood but Niall Horan and Liam Payne? Liam gave a (very) brief response to the news when he tweeted: "What a day." He followed it up with the most hilarious video of Niall, which really cheered up a lot of the fandom.
The video, captioned "This should lighten the mood," has Niall dressed as an old man in a sweater vest, bald cap, hat and glasses, sputtering off something in a thick Irish accent. Thankfully, Liam had the translation at the ready for those of us unable to make out what Niall was rattling off.
Liam tweeted: "Subtitles; ah Jesus lads will you stop hitting the slither against the wall they're just after painting it ya b******s ya ... Your welcome"
