Are Britpoppers okay? Former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown recently blasted mask-wearing on Twitter, a stance he doubled down on after receiving criticism, and now Noel Gallagher has spoken out against face masks, too. As Stereogum points out, during a recent appearance on The Matt Morgan Podcast, Gallagher went on a tirade about the issue, saying, "I don’t wear a mask, no. The whole fucking thing is bollocks. You’re supposed to wear them in Selfridges but you can fucking go down to the pub and be surrounded by every fucking cunt. Oh well, actually, we don’t have the virus in the pubs, but we have it in Selfridges, oh alright."
"I was going up to Manchester the other weekend and some guy’s going, 'Oh, can you put your mask on?' on the train, and they said the transport police would get on and fine you a thousand pounds, but you don’t have to put it on when you’re eating," Gallagher continues. "So I said alright, so this killer virus that’s sweeping through the train is gonna come and attack me and see me having a sandwich and say, ‘Leave him.'"
