The first edition of Friday's Daily Star brought news of a "sex pic shame" for Harry Styles, a member of boyband One Direction. The article, which the Star boasted was an "Exclusive", informed us:
"Harry Styles heaped fresh shame on drugs-scandal boyband One Direction last night. X-rated shots of the 20-yearold hunk in his pants have sparked outrage."
Inside the paper, the article stated:
"One Direction faced a sex storm last night as parents slammed the band's increasingly shocking behaviour. An explicit selfie image of Harry Styles, 20, flooded the net, sparking a flood of complaints."
However, a second edition of the Daily Star quickly emerged, telling a very different story.
The hastily written article this time informed us:
"One Direction star Harry Styles was furious last night after a fake sex picture appeared on the internet."
And the rewritten article inside added:
"A source close to the band said: "The fans knew immediately this picture wasn't Harry. For a start, the tattoo is not in the right place. Harry and the other lads are sick of all the fake stories and fake pictures..."
The Daily Star doesn't mention whether any media outlets fell for the picture.
