Liam posted a pic of himself and the other bandmates (without Zayn) holding a promotional photo while posing with fans. Liam decided to have a laugh and cover up Zayn's face on the poster.
When fans got a little crabby about the joke, Liam tweeted: "Some people can't take a joke... Bit of banter guys chill out." He added: "#Makinglightofasituation Sorry for the laughs guys."
Was Liam's joke funny or do you think it's too soon to make fun of Zayn taking a break?
