One Direction's Liam Payne Breaks Silence (Sorta) About Apparent Weed Video

Liam is the first member of 1D to even indirectly address their leaked video from Peru.

One Direction's Liam Payne has (sorta) broken the (kinda) silence about the weed video that surfaced online. In the leaked clip, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlison are smoking what appears to be a joint while in a car in Peru.

Some of 1D had used their Twitters to address the incident, mostly by thanking fans, but not directly commenting on the issue. But now Liam is at least indirectly referring to the guys' possible indiscretion by admitting they may have gone a "little sideways" and "I apologise for that":

Liam also explained that being young means they'll "fall short somewhere":

He also commented on their future and showed gratitude for the fame and success that they've achieved as well as for their Directioners:

Despite Liam tweeting that "We have a lot of growing up to do," it sounds like he's taken the mature route around this controversy. Zayn, Louis, your move.

Possession of up to 8 grams of marijuana is generally not punishable in Peru.
