The six-second clip has been seen over 1.75 million times, because of course.

Despite the fact that the comment was most likely made in jest, it has caused Directioners to go into meltdown. 

Several fans announced they were dying.

While others were skeptical.

He was drunk, right?

Although some had other theories…

#ImGayItsPrettyUnfortunate became a hashtag

And fans pledged to support him no matter what.

For his part, Louis has remained silent, but has changed his profile photo to a Twitter egg
