[+39/147] Louis Tomlinson attends his mother Joannah’s wedding to Daniel Deakin. Also in attendance was Harry’s mother Anne, who received a hug from Niall as he relaxed with a pint. Louis was accompanied by his girlfriend Eleanor and Liam also brought his girlfriend Sophia. - July 20th, 2014
I know that this post will probably be flushed down the dash in a minute but I ought to make it.
The design of the tshirt Louis is wearing is an adapted version of an old Russian prison tattoo made by a prisoner of GULAG, Soviet forced labor camp system where over a million of people died between 1934 and 1953. Besides the name of the prison it contains a verse:
'Damn you, Kolyma, which is known as the plague of the planet. It drives you mad. From here there is no way out'.
I’m sure Louis has no idea what he’s wearing (and he wore it already 2 times at least) but this design is very offensive to a lot of people. And I really hope someone can tell him not to wear it again.
I understand that culturally the shirt is problematic but I am going to suggest that perhaps that Louis DOES know what he is wearing. He was out stunting when he was seen wearing this. Louis has been in One Direction four years and probably only the first couple of months or so were even fun. By October 2011 he was fully bearded and closeted and his public image was transformed into all you need to know about Louis is that he has a pretty perfect student girlfriend who name is…. she is the one you should focus on not him.
Even today we got a blind gossip full of over the top accolades telling fans that they should appreciate Louis’ beard and not hate her. Why?She is not a public figure. Fans were then told that she is the most important support in Louis’ life-what? Modest you went too far. Again. You told us she was a hired beard, they have an arrangement where she is paid to be his public girlfriend but then they tried to say she is the most important support in his life. What? Not any of his REAL relationships are the most important but the one with the person who is paid to fake a relationship with him is the most important—REALLY? Why do we need to know anything about her? Why do they keep pushing her forward?
I haven’t seen ANY articles about how wonderful Louis is and how supportive of his bandmates Louis is. Where are the articles about not hating on Louis? Louis gets tons of hate and nobody ever steps up to defend him EVER.
Imagine if you are Louis having to spend your limited free time with your fakelation and ignore your real relationship in public likely that might feel like like a prison and may be driving him mad. Louis’ verse at the end of Something Great is “You’re all I want so much it’s hurting.”
Let’s also not ignore the other prison tattoos Louis has permanently inked on his body. Did anyone get a closeup of the spiderweb on his shin yet? What about the bomb and match?
If people’s guesses are correct Louis still has about 18 month to serve with his sentence/contract with Modest and so far they have shown no mercy. In fact last month Modest published articles specifically stating that they had hired his girlfriend to be his minder and control him and that they expected her to be attached to his hip fulltime now that she is out of school. Sounds like the worst sort prison to me.
I am also someone that does not believe that Louis is great friends with the beard. Harry hates her. You can’t be best friends with someone your husband hates.
so just to be clear - we’re equating louis’ experiences in one direction (multi-million selling boyband, travelling all over the world, performing for a living) to the experiences of gulag prisoners?

A fan captured the boys’ attention when she held up a sign with images of Louis Tomlinson & Zayn Malik faces surrounded by animated roll ups at their first show at Stadium Of Light in Sunderland. - 5/28
