Zayn Malik has gotten a lot of flack recently for skipping out on some of One Direction's appearances, making Directioners freak out that there's tension between him and the rest of his bandmates. After Niall Horan posted an Instagram photo with all the guys except for Zayn, fans started worrying again.
