Is the #WelcomeBackTo1DZayn Twitter trending topic something to celebrate? Is it even legit or a total fake? Well, as the fandom knows, a lot of bogus hashtags have been known to trend, and since Zayn Malik quit the band just recently, we wouldn't expect his return anytime soon.

Still, a fan can hope. But how did the hashtag even get started?

Turns out, it was born out of a One Direction documentary that aired on Brazilian TV, with The Telegraph reporting: "This hashtag was linked to #OneDirectionNoMultishow, a reference to the Brazilian TV show Multishow, who ran a One Direction documentary on Sunday night. It was during this clips show that [Twitter user] @LuxoJones claimed that Zayn gave an interview, explaining that he was returning this year." The fan later explained why she started the hashtag #WelcomeBackTo1DZayn, writing in a Twitlonger post:

That's not the only Zayn-related hashtag to pop up over the weekend, either – '#ZaynInManila' also made the rounds, suggesting Zayn would be performing a solo concert in Manila.

The trend started after Sound Check Manila tweeted a poll, writing: "FAN POLL:How about a @zaynmalik concert in Manila? You want that? #ZaynMalikInManila "

Don't believe everything you read on Twitter, guys.
