Madame Tussauds Now Has A "Tissue Attendant" For Its One Direction Sculptures

Cry over Zayn as much as you want — someone will be there to mop up your tears.

Ever since One Direction's Zayn Malik departed from the group, the teen world has been awash with tears.

So many of these young Directioners have brought their sobs to the Zayn Malik wax figure at Madame Tussauds in London that the museum has had to hire a "tissue attendant."

"We've had a delivery of 150 boxes of tissues over the weekend so we're prepared," Grace Cadden, the assistant for the OneD exhibit, told Yahoo UK.

The position of "OneD tissue attendant" isn't new: It was originally created two years ago when the statues were first installed. Fans were so overcome with joy at seeing a likeness of the band that someone had to be brought in to dry their tears.

The position has now been revived for the less joyous occasion.

In spite of Zayn's tragic departure from the real band, Madame Tussauds will not be breaking up the wax band.

To help cheer up the brokenhearted fans, a guy who plays Zayn in a tribute band has even been hanging around the wax statues.
