One member of One Direction is slamming some new Internet rumors suggesting the boys were drinking alcohol while on stage. Niall Horan took to Twitter to stop the reports, saying there was "no way" they would "ever ever" be that irresponsible.
The 19-year-old wrote that he and his bandmates give their best on stage every night and rumors like this "just messes it all up."
It was later revealed that the rumor may have originated from a joke, after a digital photo was created showing Niall and Louis Tomlinson talking to one another while holding plastic water bottles.
