One Direction 2012: Embarrassing Niall Horan & Louis Tomlinson school boy bebo pictures & email addresses posted online!
In the words of Take That, Never forget where you’ve come here from, words that couldn’t be more true for the members of One Direction right about now, as their forgotten social networking pages have been discovered by fans!
Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik do have an awful lot on their minds right now, what with a sell-out international tour, a 3D film in the making and talks of their own TV series, to name but a few projects, but whilst their lives spiral further and further into mega-star status, one thing they forgot to do was remove their Joe Bloggs existence from the internet, a silly mistake for a group who have a fan base bigger than most European countries.
Social networking site, Bebo, used to be a regular virtual hangout for the lads before they were famous, and yesterday accounts from the group were discovered, and exposed tot he rest of the world on-line.
As pictures in the Sun newspaper today show, worst affected by this oversight were Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, who had used the site to upload embarrassing and childish pics of themselves, as well as some rather incriminating ones too.
In one of Louis’ pictures, the then underage lad can be seen swigging beer whilst posing topless making gangster-rap style gestures.
Some of Liam’s posts were harmless enough, he posted a few videos of him singing with bands her performed with at school, but in other pictures uploaded, Horan can be seen pretending to punch a baby (who was actually a doll) whilst wearing a balaclava and brandishing a (toy) gun.
In another, the baby-faced One Direction star can be seen drinking alcohol whilst dressed in army gear with captions under the photo’s saying things such as: “F***! we’re under attack!” and, “Act normal in front of the Taliban!”
And in his Greatest Fears section he wrote: “Dying, being scraped by a certain someone’s nails… f*** sake it hurts… being punched in the b**** by the same person.”
Despite the goofy, and somewhat disturbing photo’s, the female attention did not seem to waver at all, with female fans posting comments under the pictures saying things such as they wanted to “eat him”, and they must have thought they had struck gold whilst reading the page when his email address, email@example.com, was displayed clear as day, although we suspect the account has been deleted now, or crashed under the pressure of a million hungry and hormonal fans sending him their best wishes!
After the pictures leaked yesterday, Niall revealed that he was desperate to go in and edit his Bebo page, but that he had lost the password, taking to social networking site, Twitter, to address the situation, tweeting: “My old Bebo — don’t know the password anymore! #embarrassing.”
However eagle eyed fans spotted that the page was saying he last logged in just six hours previously. We like their style!
What do you think of the old Bebo pages? Leave your views in the comments section…
