Millions of One Direction fans received the horrifying news that their beloved singing quartet were taking “at least a year off to focus on solo projects” last night. Which basically means they’re splitting up.
The news broke to much disbelief on twitter, and while hordes of girls shook their fists at the skies and destroyed their bedroom furniture, non-fans celebrated by, well, trolling ‘Directioners’ on every social media platform available.
Here is the best mixture we could possibly find, to sum up the events for you. Not like you care or anything…
Some people were pretty sad

I don't even remember my life before one direction if they break up I'll literally turn into a vegetable

Some people blamed the man who is gunning for Labour Party leadership
How can Corbyn keep Labour together when he can't even stop One Direction from splitting?

But, most people were loving it
So there wasn’t only one direction after all

I am not making any jokes about the One Direction split. That's what makes me beautiful.

Considerate of One Direction to announce their split during the summer holidays. Teachers everywhere will be raising a glass to them.

One Direction are splitting up next March.
Which means the One Direction Reunion Tour starts in March 2019.

You know when something big happens and David Cameron comes back from holiday…is it the same for R1 DJs if 1D split up? If so…annoyed.
