    Liam Payne Shared A TikTok Draft About What Happened After Zayn Left One Direction, And I'm So Glad He Did

    "POV: The meeting after Zayn quit."

    So, it's been about six years since Zayn Malik officially left One Direction and the band announced their "extended hiatus."

    Since then, each of the members β€” Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn β€” have all branched out with their own solo music, acting gigs, and other endeavors.

    Throughout the years, the guys haven't been suuuuper vocal about what went down after Zayn left, but yesterday, Liam finally decided to post one of his TikTok drafts about it, and I'm so glad he did.

    In his video, he wrote, "POV the meeting after Zayn quits" accompanied with this audio: "Are we absolutely sure what direction we're going?!"

    Understandably, the commenters are freaking out:

    Some originally thought it was from a fan account, not Liam's actual verified account:

    One person said 'Liam You Did Not just'

    And some β€” myself included β€” are still feeling the pain they felt back in March 2015:

    One person said 'Liam chose Payne' with the skull emoji

    Obviously, Liam's TikTok doesn't mean any ill will toward Zayn and his decision to leave the band, because of the video's caption: "Forgot I made this a while ago, hope you see the funny side."

    But I'd be verrrrrrry eager to see what else Liam has hidden in his TikTok drafts.
