Louis Tomlinson is known as one of the outspoken members of One Direction, so this latest incident might not come as a surprise to some people, however, it’s the fact that he might have actually dissed their own product that will be a shock.
At the group’s book signing for their newest autobiography, Louis Tomlinson is heard poking fun at the title of the book. In the video from ODE, reporter Lucy Jones has her book signed by Louis Tomlinson, and as he’s signing it, he writes in the book and says out loud, “Who we aren’t.”
This might not seem controversial to the average person, however, when you realize that the actual title of the book is “Who We Are,” it seems like Louis is implying that the book isn’t an accurate reflection of who they are. On top of that, the fact that he blatantly says it out loud implies that he’s not happy with the book altogether.
If this is the case, it probably won’t come as a surprise to directioners because this isn’t the first time that members of the group have implied that they don’t like their own books.
In the now infamous marijuana video that was leaked in May of this year, Louis and Zayn were also heard praising Kid Rock’s book, and in the process, lamenting about what sounded like their own books.
“His book, it’s about twice the size, hard back, black, simple writing,” Zayn is heard saying. “The whole thing’s just filled with sick pictures, and just like captions from each place, no bulls**t…no like ‘My favorite color’s blue’… full of sick s**t instead of boring crap.”
Louis is then heard agreeing when he says: “Yeah I know, same old s**t that I’m sure the fans are bored of reading.”
To which Zayn responds: “They wanna know what we’re up to now man.”
