’s Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson are in hot water after a video leaked of the pair allegedly smoking an illegal substance.

E! News reports that the five-minute video was released online today, showing Zayn and Louis talking and reportedly smoking while being shuttled in a van in Peru.

At one point, Zayn refers to the content as “very controversial,” with Louis at one point stating, “One very, very important factor of Zayn’s warm-up of course is Mary J herself.”

According to MTV News, there’s already been a major backlash from the singers’ young fans, with a few posting photos of torn-up tickets and asking for an apology.

Meanwhile, a rep for 1D would only tell E! News, “This matter is in the hands of our lawyers.”

The group was said to be in Peru in late April, and there is no information at this time on how the video was obtained.
