23 Hilarious Reactions To The One Direction “Break” That Will Help You Laugh Through Your Pain

Before you ask–yeah, whatever. I’m fine.

I mean, I’m about as “fine” as I could be, considering The News. If you haven’t heard, One Direction are taking a break (or, “going in separate directions,” according to a few very original news outlets who all appear to have been saving this headline since the day Zayn left the band). Like most rational people, I am devastated–like, it’s bad enough that my boyfriend, Harry Styles, went to the moon without telling me, and now this? (PSA: Harry Styles is not actually my boyfriend. He wishes!!!!)

Anyway, the only thing that’s really getting me through right now is the internet. Take a look at these hilarious reactions to the potential split and soon, you won’t be able to tell whether the tears on your cheeks are from laughing or crying:

1. Ryan Reynolds GETS IT:

It is comforting that I’m not the only one.

2. Denial is key:

I also like the word “denial” because it obviously has roots in the name “Niall,” you know?

3. Like, if you don’t think about it, it’s very likely that it didn’t happen at all.

Sure, you have to quit the internet, but it’s worth it.

4. This is also a reasonable request:

“Declaring his intentions to me directly”–just like a suitor in a Jane Austen novel! I have always found Harry to be very Mr. Darcy-esque, myself.

5. We’re all doing our best here:


6. Oh, good, dads are getting involved:


And I’m NOT just talking about Liam and Louis! *winks*

7. I mean, yeah:


8. Or is this just the best setting for such a moment? Think about it:

Catharsis is very important, after all.

9. We all see what we want to see in the end:

This look works the best for Louis, I think.

10: Attribution is key:

The source makes the story, no?

11.This is true:

But where does it end, you know?

12. No, the nightmare lives on:

16-year-old Harry GETS it, you know?

13. Me too, Dan:

Me too.

14. Rude:


But, to be fair, there is a lot of drama.

15. Like, bye:

I saw this sign when I went to Corpus and I started laughing then crying because I need sleep

This is the route that Zayn took, I assume.

16. If you were wondering what the boys had to say for themselves, Niall was the first one to break the silence with this painfully cryptic tweet:

17: Don’t worry, though–ever the giver, he made sure to clear things up for a confused fan:

Thanks, bud.

18. Louis also had some choice words:

Ever the enigma, that one.

19. But, all the same, we must be strong:

I literally just woke up for a nap dammit and something happens.

This is a very good point.

20. After all, there are far more important things to focus on:

Such as photoshopping Louis to make it look like he’s wearing a crop top.

21. And this other fascinating theory about what 2016 might really bring:

Why not?

22. And, most of all, this video in which Harry Styles mistakes his water bottle for a microphone:


23. But, at the end of the day, for any true Directioner, there will never be a day in which this is not the case:

God bless.

What do you think about the break? Is it real? If so, is it really temporary, or is there something more sinister going on? Let us know in the comments below!
