This Belfast teenager's hysterical reaction to Zayn leaving One Direction is going viral

We’ve all been there.

YESTERDAY’S NEWS THAT Zayn Malik had left One Direction left teenagers across the world in an awful emotional state.

There was weeping, crying, screaming and all round hysteria.

Take this Belfast teenager, for instance. Her brother Pete Smith recorded her reaction to the news and it’s simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, and includes some classic trolling courtesy of her brother. (“Who’s going to sing his wee parts in the songs?”)

It also includes this classic adolescent statement.


The video, which was uploaded to Facebook, has been viewed 670,000 times since it was uploaded last night and has received nearly 38,000 likes. Brothers, eh?

Anyone who shed a tear when Geri Halliwell left her fellow Spice Girls or when Robbie Williams decided to embark on a solo career will surely relate.
