One Directions's Liam Payne has revealed concerns for his fellow band-mate Zayn Malik following the boyband's increased fame.
Liam spoke to The Sun newspaper and stated: "The only person I worry about is Zayn, because I don't think he's accustomed to all of this. He's had a terrible time on Twitter."
19-year-old Zayn deactivated his Twitter account recently after he received a string of racial slurs in which he was labelled "terrorist".
Liam added: "He's my best mate I've got to look out for him."
"It's mad to think I didn't know them two years ago and now they're my best mates".
Zayn was further pushed into the limelight after an audio was leaked of him allegedly arranging a "booty call" with a group of young fans.
