The Huffington Post just made a horrible blunder involving Zayn Malik and ISIS


EARLIER TODAY, THE Huffington Post published a story about ISIS.

The photo they used to illustrate the tweet?

A photo of Zayn Malik, of course.

While the story, a link to a podcast, refers to Zayn Malik in passing, many criticised the website for using an image of the star to illustrate the article and accused them of engaging in clickbait.

This evening, The Huffington Post apologised for using the image (and included an attached screenshot) and clarified that Malik is not part of ISIS.

You don’t say?

Although people are still having none of it.

But just so we’re clear, lads — Zayn Malik is not in ISIS. Got that?
