Liam Payne has enraged some One Direction fans with a tweet referencing the absence of his bandmate, Zayn Malik.

Posting a picture to Twitter, the 21-year-old showed a snap of the band posing at a photocall during their world tour in the Philippines, along with a big poster of them and decided to cover up Zayn Malik's face.


    He posted the caption: "#makinglightofasituation sorry for the laughs guys"

    Fans weren't just annoyed because Liam covered up Zayn's lovely face, but because he's been signed off from their tour with "stress".

    After getting some flack for the picture, Liam followed up the tweet with two more saying: "Never mind" and "#Banter".

    However, this wasn'ty enough to calm down 1D fans, as they posted...

    Zayn Malik is currently back in the UK, it's thought that he flew home to talk with his fiance Perrie Edwards after images circulated of him holding hands with a mystery girl during their tour of Bangkok. Malik lashed out at the speculation shortly afterwards by posting:

    "I'm 22 years old... I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there's a lot of jealous f**ks in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like x"
