Zayn's tweet used an unfortunate abbreviation that baffled his fans, who take every word he says as gospel.

I'm sure that ex-One Directioner Zayn Malik didn't think anything of it when he tweeted this image to let his 15.4 million followers know he was seeing Method Man and Red Man in concert. Unfortunately, "meth" is less common as an abbreviation for "method" as it is for "methamphetamine," AKA "crystal meth," "that sweet sweet crank," "blue sky," or "Zayn's choice." Fans immediately started expressing genuine concern for the 22-year-old pop star.

Exactly! He's rich enough to afford any drug, not some dirty truckstop meth. Not that he does drugs, there's no evidence of that. Zayn has yet to come forward and clear up the confusion himself, but he probably should. He doesn't realize what a tastemaker he is.

Will this be the turning point that brings meth into the mainstream? Only time will tell.
