One Direction's Louis Tomlinson has been plunged into a race row after apparently using a racial slur in a video of him and a bandmate smoking a ‘joint’.
Bringing the under-fire band into further disrepute, Louis was today lambasted for using the word 'nig' - which fans say is a shortened version of the N-word - in the controversial footage.
The video, revealed by MailOnline last night, shows Louis, 22, and fellow One Direction member Zayn Malik, 21, passing round what appears to be cannabis.
Louis puts on an accent while speaking about drugs, then said: ‘It’s green only, nig.’
One Direction fans - as well as MPs and racism campaigners - demanded apologies from the band in light of the video.
They said the boy band had abused their position as role models and risked encouraging their young fans to copy them.
Simon Cowell, their ultimate boss, was also dragged into the row as fans sent him messages urging him to take action over the use of a form of the N-word.
Louis filmed himself and Zayn as they were being escorted by car to a show in Lima, Peru, on April 27.
In the footage, they can be seen lighting up a roll-up and passing it around in the car that is escorting them to the Estadio Nacional, where they performed to a 40,000 capacity crowd.

The pair then go on to a discussion in which the word ‘gay’ is used in a derogatory fashion, leading to criticism today.
With the sound of excited crowds screaming outside their vehicle, Louis and Zayn can then be heard discussing official band merchandise.
Zayn describes One Direction’s official book as ‘boring crap’ and ‘weird’ and Louis says it was ‘gay’.
Zayn replies: ‘Yeah and f****** really girly and just not cool.’

Today senior MPs and anti-racism campaigners warned that the language used in the video encouraged hate among young people.

What does – and what should — the coming out process look like on TV?

Is it a requirement to depict tearful handwringing? Do characters have to put on misery pageants to court audience acceptance? And, if they perform their agony convincingly enough, then can they win a golden ticket to complex stories and true humanity?

Luckily, more television programs are realizing that harrowing coming out plotlines don’t have to be the apex of LGBTQ characters’ usefulness. But the shows that give coming out a casual, “no big deal” treatment don’t necessarily mirror all viewers’ experiences, either. They fail to acknowledge complicating factors in the lives of many LGBTQ people: factors that make lying low until “it gets better” seem downright impossible.

Showtime’s Shameless has confronted this omission head-on, leading audiences through a winding, protracted, and ultimately triumphant coming out story from one of the most subversive queer characters on television.

Inspired by the long-running British series of the same name, comedy-drama Shameless is a rare beast for American TV in terms of tone and content. At the show’s center is the Gallagher family, feebly helmed by alcoholic patriarch Frank (William H. Macy), living a hand-to-mouth existence on the South Side of Chicago. Shameless doesn’t pull punches when it comes to examining the far-reaching effects of multi-generational poverty, addiction, and mental illness. It also avoids condescension and pity. Shameless traffics heavily in gray areas with its deeply flawed, but usually not all-good or all-bad, characters. And whenever viewers are tempted to moralize, difficult truths emerge to muddy the waters.
