In a hilarious Funny or Die video, Zane recorded a message for his "curiously heartbroken" fans, in which he reassured them that he is OK, even though he had no clue that his 'shippers were "hysterical 14-year-old girls."
The tweets from his followers seem to have a common misspelling, so he tried to make them aware of their faux pas. "I don't want to be nitpicky," he said. "It's Z-A-N-E not Z-A-Y-N."
But when the tweets became overwhelmingly emotional with messages such as "I can't stop crying" and "#AlwaysInOurHeartsZayn," the Titanic actor started to respond with quotes from other famous musicians in order to console his worriers.
"As Sara Bareilles says, 'Say what you want to say / Let the words fall out / Honestly, I want to see you be brave,'" he recited.
