Jimmy Kimmel shared some of the fandom's reactions to the breakup rumors and it was nothing short of hilarious...well, we're talking hindsight here, after we were reassured by the guys that they'll definitely be back as a group after some rest.
Here's the best part though: Jimmy's team assembled a montage of news anchors making the same exact One Direction breakup joke. You know, how they're "going in different directions" now?
Insert groan here.
Bonus groans for those news people who honestly think they're making that pun for the first time ever.
