Luisa Zissman has spoken out in defence of One Direction following the leak of a video showing Zayn Malik smoking what appears to be a ‘joint’.

Writing in her Daily Star column, Luisa stated she’s not One Direction’s biggest fan, however that hasn’t stopped her from voicing her support for them.

Luisa goes on to highlight that if Zayn was actually smoking cannabis in the vid, it’s not illegal as the clip was filmed in Peru, where you can legally smoke the drug.

The former ‘Apprentice’ star went on to highlight that in her opinion, some rock stars who admit to drug use don’t face the criticism 1D have, leading her to conclude that perhaps the ‘Little Things’ singer should change things up a bit.

Plenty of celebrities have spoken out following the release of the video, including Syco Records boss Simon Cowell, who has said he hopes Directioners continue to support the band.

'BGT' winners Collabro have also weighed in on the debate, with singer Jamie stating: "One Direction are famous on a global level, I don’t endorse drugs or smoking weed but at the same time these guys are just human beings."
