Liam Gallagher has branded his estranged brother Noel Gallagher an ‘embarrassment’ after he reportedly called new Oasis fans ‘little p****s’.
Noel, 52, announced recently that he’ll be taking a break from music until 2021 to ‘get away from it for a bit’. He also shared his thoughts on the new generation of Oasis fans who are only just discovering the now-defunct band’s music.
In an interview with Guitar.com, the High Flying Birds frontman said: ‘The thing is, there’s a generation now, between 15 and 18 years old, that have just got into the Oasis thing. ‘They’ve never heard most of what I’ve done, that’s for sure. But really, they have no idea what was going on before.’ He added: ‘So for those little p****s, I’ll take great pleasure in ruining their days.’
The comments riled up his younger brother Liam, 47, who thought it was tasteless to speak poorly of the fans supporting their music. Reacting to Noel’s remarks, Liam tweeted on Sunday morning: ‘For someone who honestly and I mean HONESTLY thinks he’s the Paul McCartney of his generation is seriously deluded imagine Macca saying all new Beatle fans are p****s sorry rkid you need more than a year off you are an embarrassment to the family.’
Thanking Liam for standing up for them, one fan said: ‘Just wanted to say thank you for defending us young fans, obviously some people think we aren’t welcome anywhere i f****n LOVE YA.’
The Wonderwall singer replied: ‘F**k those p****s your welcome anytime I f*****g love you all [sic].’ Continuing his rant against Noel, the rocker added: ‘I thought I was a c**t but f**k me while he’s around I shine bright like a diamond.’ In other tweets, Liam said: ‘He needs to take more than a year of he’s f*****g embarrassing himself. ‘He’s slagging of peoples kids full stop and probably kids of original oasis fans he’s f*****g embarrassing.’
