Bad Week For 1D

Zane and Louis from One Direction have caused controversy this week after a video was leaked of them smoking marijuana when in Peru. Whilst the substance is legal in small quantities in Peru the band are still being frowned upon due to their actions. On Direction are marketed at a pre-teen audience and are expected to act a certain way due to the level of social responsibility that they hold. However, their use of the drug was not illegal. What do you think readers? Are the boys at fault? Let us know.
