Since Zayn Malik announced that he has decided to leave the band, Louis, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne have been nothing but respectful of Zayn's decision. Zayn was even spotted wearing a friendship necklace from Harry! Louis always having the fans in mind tweeted at Zayn's friend and collaborator Naughty Boy, asking him to ease up on any "Zayn has moved on to bigger and better things" talk, which led to Naughty Boy releasing a demo song he worked on with Zayn. Louis made it known that he will defend Directioners and their feelings about the situation, further earning his title as the greatest ever.
In honor of Louis' amazingness, we just had to make an appreciation post representing every time he was simply the best. Click through the gallery to see the pics and GIFs and then tell us in the comments which moment is your favorite!
