One Direction is learning the price of fame in the Internet age. Member Zayn Malik has reportedly fallen victim to an invasion of privacy, after two South American fans found a piece of his luggage and decided to post photos of its contents on Twitter.
According to a local fan site, the two girls were among the many waiting for the boy band at the airport in Peru earlier this year when they witnessed the group's entourage accidentally drop a duffel bag on the ground. They claim they tried to get the bag back to his people, but failed in the midst of the chaos.

The newly posted photos show the girls holding up a bag with the initials "Z.M." written on the exterior, as well as some of the singer's supposed possessions like some clothes and drawings.
The majority of One Direction fans don't seem to approve of the leak, however, as the hashtag #ZaynDeservesPrivacy started trending worldwide shortly after the photos surfaced.
