Zayn Malik the human may have left One Direction, but his wax figure lives on as part of the band at London’s Madame Tussauds—and the museum even has a special attendant on hand to dole out tissues to grieving Directioners. 

“I want to reassure fans that we will absolutely not be removing Zayn from our One Direction lineup,” Madame Tussauds marketing manager Matt Clarkson said in a statement“We will continue to play their music non-stop in their dedicated setting, and the Tissue Attendant will be on hand when needed.”

The role of Tissue Attendant was first created when Madame Tussauds introduced the One Direction figures back in 2013—and judging by Twitter’s (and Morgan Spurlock’sreaction to Malik’s departure, museum visitors will really be taking advantage of those tissues.
