During a radio interview about the ‘current state’ of music, Noel Gallagher misgenders Sam Smith as he calls them a “f**king idiot“.
On September 2019 Sam Smith said that they were changing their pronouns to ‘they/them’ after a ‘lifetime of being at war’ with their gender.
I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out,” Smith explained in an emotional Instagram post at the time.
I’m so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I’ve been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but f**k it!

Specifying exactly who he felt was ‘uncool’, Noel Gallagher said:
