Liam Gallagher has hit out at cancel culture, saying it’s for “f***ing squares”.

He went on to criticise the so-called practice of “cancelling” public figures: “Who the f*** are these people cancelling you, anyway? Like, f*** off. Unless they come around to your house and say you’re cancelled. You’re still going to do your f***ing thing, they don’t speak for everyone, do they?”

The former Oasis singer was appearing on The 2 Johnnies Podcast when he made the comments.

The never shy rock star added: “The cancelling people just speak for the cancelled world, they don’t f***ing speak for everyone. You can still go and do your gig, there are people out there who are going to like what you’ve got to say. Bring it f***ing on, you f***ing squares!”

Gallagher recently apologised for sending death threats to Atletico Madrid defender Stefan Savic.

After Madrid’s feisty clash with Gallagher’s Manchester City, the singer tweeted: “Stefan Savic this is a threat if I come across you ya goofy looking C*** your dead MCFC.”

Gallagher apologised shortly after on social media: “I’m really upset and annoyed at myself. I feel I’ve let all my fans down by my outlandish behaviour I’m a role model to GROWN UPS hope you can forgive me.”

Gallagher’s third solo album ‘C’mon You Know’ is due for release 27 May. He has already released the title track, ‘Better Days’, and the Dave Grohl featuring ‘Everything’s Electric’ as singles from the album.

To celebrate the new album, Gallagher will be performing at Knebworth Park next month for the biggest solo show of his career.

Supporting his for the two gigs on the third and fourth of June are Kasabian, Michael Kiwanuka and Fat White Family.

Gallagher is also due to appear in a documentary for Sky called Liam Gallagher: 24 Hours at Rockfield.

The film will follow Gallagher and his sons at Rockfield Studios in Wales for “48 hours of music, memories and mayhem”.
