After the news broke yesterday that Zayn Malik would be leaving wildly popular boy band One Direction, teenagers hopped on Vine to record 6-second loop videos of themselves crying over Malik’s departure and the band’s future.
Berst posted the video of his Vine making it to CBS with the description: “Hey guys, I didn’t think this would blow up so much, so I’m going to take this opportunity to sellout and ask you to subscribe to my main channel. Thanks yo, I love you all.”
He also posted it to Reddit.
Berst continues to maintain he is absolutely not a fan of One Direction, and that this was just a joke.
Here’s that Vine again.
