Let's HELP PEOPLE! Or, just Tweet about it some more.

Late last night, One Direction superstar Liam Payne had some thoughts. 

Some pretty deep and profound thoughts about the state of the world.

"I don't ever claim to be a good person I'm not," he begins in a rambly diatribe posted to TwitLonger. "But I feel that I wanna be a humanitarian with all of this attention, if that's all i do that would make me happy." 

"find a way to help donate to any charity and help change the world today," he ends after a lengthy perspective on his own privilege. "please from me".

And WOW. The Directioners have RESPONDED. Kinda.

#LetsHelpLiamChangeTheWorld has been trending all day, so let's check in and see how the fandom is doing!:

So yeah! Let's do it! Go Liam!

We're so pumped to start changing that world! 




While Liam's original message is very considerate (if not a little vague), there seems to be more celebration of his altruistic nature and getting a new hashtag trending than there is actually changing anything. Sure, these things don't really happen over the course of a day, but it does feel as though this topic could be used to actually further some donations or charity projects, instead of just, y'know, posting the same super-pixelated heart diagram about how great Liam is for caring.

At least some folks have a little more perspective. A little.

And some ARE genuinely finding helpful ways to contribute to a good cause!

While others are apparently channeling their inner Jaden Smith instead.

Meanwhile, Liam wakes up, sees the ruckus, and...

WELP. That doesn't make the message any less meaningful, right fandom? We're still gonna try and do some good?


 Never change, Directioners.
