One Direction fans Laura Tokely and Lindsay Ringette wipe away tears following the news of the departure of Zayn Malik from One Direction on March 31, 2015 in London, England. 

Ladies crying over the departure of Zayn Malik from One Direction are not a problem for Madame Tussauds wax museum. 

The famed attraction has hired tissue attendants for their London location, as well as boxes of tissues for fans overcome by their 1D breakup feels. (This really seems like an April Fools' joke, but apparently it's not.) Yahoo UK notes this isn't even the first time the One Direction room has needed tissues -- previously, the site needed tissue support on hand for fans happy-crying because they were in the same room with the guys just like they had always imagined! (The wax statues are pretty lifelike.)

"Directioners that have visited since the news broke have enjoyed seeing all of the boys together and singing along with their songs - many have also been teary eyed, but we've had a delivery of 150 boxes of tissues over the weekend so we're prepared," attraction assistant Grace Cadden told Yahoo UK. 

To answer the most important question: No, Wax Zayn Malik is not leaving the room. So if during this difficult and trying time you need to be around like-minded people who see things the way you do -- with all five guys together once again --  Madame Tussauds has you covered. We won't tell.
