Remember when Cody Simpson Snapchatted Justin Bieber and One Direction's Niall Horan jammin' to 'Home to Mama' and some people pointed out a pipe on the table? Well at the time the Daily Star ran with the headline '1D New Drugs Storm: Niall pictured with Breaking Bad-style pipe,' which was a little excessive; and now they've apologised for it.

Yup - totally glossing over the fact said Snap featured Nialler, Justin, Cody and co. IN THE SAME ROOM, the paper decided to lead with the whole 'Breaking Bad-style pipe' angle and suggested they might have been taking 'hard drugs.' Something they've now said they're sorry for.

After publishing the article back in July 2015 the Daily Star have come back with their tail between their legs and released a statement saying: "We accept that the implication was not correct and that Mr Horan had not consumed any hard drugs.

"We apologise to him for any distress we may have caused."

Gah, what's done is done guys. Nialler's probably too busy hanging out with his new BFF Justin Timberlake to worry about it now, anyways.
