Earlier today, the world worst fears were realized when Zayn Malik (who I'm told is informally known as "the pretty one") officially announced he's leaving One Direction, sparking a million terrible jokes in the process.
Even if you don't know much about the band, you're probably aware most of its fans aren't known for having calm and measured reactions.
This is because high school girls typically have a difficult time keeping their emotions in check.
However, some fans have taken the news a little bit harder than others, and by that I mean they're literally crying and posting pictures online to prove how sad they are.
Hopefully you can find some joy in their sorrow.
It's not just girls who are heartbroken; I didn't take the news very well either.
