Zayn it ain't so: Brands mourn the loss of a One Directioner

It’s a momentous time in history. Singer Zayn Malik has left One Direction, throwing tweens everywhere into a downward spiral of depression they will not emerge from until their 40th birthday. The news broke Wednesday morning that Malik was leaving the hot band to focus on being a “normal” 22-year-old. Brands, ever mindful of the difficult time this was for their young customers, were quick to lend their support. We round up and grade the offenders.
