| Filed under: One DirectionZayn MalikMatt Lauer

What in the world was he thinking?!?

One Direction was on the Today show this morning, but Zayn Malik was notably missing!

The band members cleared up that he has a "tummy bug" but not before Matt Lauer did the unthinkable: he actually asked them if Zayn was missing because of substance abuse rumors!

What?!

Of course, Directioners went nuts, tweeting things like:

"You DO NOT ASK if Zayn Malik is on drugs! NEVER!"

Duh, Matt! Don't you know who you're dealing with??

LOLz!

Take a look at the video (above) to see Matt step over the Directioner line!

    He was saying and thinking what a lot of other people are thinking too.

    It's his job to ask, where's the story here? must be a slow celebutard day.

    One Direction does a lot of work with NBC and their various affiliates and that brings in TONS of money and publicity for NBC. I wish Matt and the rest of the Today Show staff would show them a little more respect. There have been occasions when the band has been on the show in the past where Matt or Savannah have messed up the boys names or had wrong facts about them. This was just another example of the Today Show treating the boys with very little regard and its not professional. Liam handled Matt's question this morning very maturely.

    Such a disrespectful and uncalled for question.. The worst part is, he tried to use the fans as scapegoats by claiming they had been asking about it when in fact the rumour was non-existent until he made it up. Interviewers like Lauer will do anything for a story.. clearly he didn't phase the group, though.
    On a more positive note, here are my thoughts on the boys' excellent new album Four:

    I was trying to listen to the interview but them stupid ass teenage girls kept yelling and screaming making it impossible to hear anything at all. I don't mind one direction but it would be nice if they would have done the interview somewhere where no one was there like in the studio so people can actually hear what they have to say instead of hearing teenage girls yelling when no one cares about you yelling over your stupid one direction obsession. But yes I understand Matt Lauer was a bit out of line for that question he made about the substance abuse I don't think that was needed when they were there to talk about the album release itself not about drug and substance abuse.
