Parenting website Netmums has criticised "naive" One Direction star Zayn Malik after footage emerged appearing to show him smoking cannabis.
Nicola Lamond from the parenting site told ITV News: "Popstars doing drugs is nothing new – but when you market your music to pre-teen children, you take on real responsibility as a role model.
“Parents need to know their infant and junior age child’s idol won’t be caught out doing anything illegal or immoral."
"Perhaps he needs to do some work with a charity specialising in helping children overcome the harrowing effects of drug use in their family.”
Liam Payne has apologised on behalf of his One Direction bandmates after two of the singers were filmed appearing to be smoking marijuana.
Members of boy band One Direction have been filmed smoking a rolled up cigarette and joking about cannabis.
