Liam Gallagher’s Twitter rant over Peter Kay’s jibe on stage at Brits

Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher has blasted Peter Kay for an insult the comic aimed at him during the Brit Awards.

Gallagher swore and hurled a microphone as he accepted Oasis's award for the best Brits album of the past 30 years for their record (What's the Story) Morning Glory? last night.

The surly performance prompted host Kay to remark to the audience and millions of viewers: “What a k**bhead”, as he left the stage.

But Mancunian Gallagher used Twitter to get his own back on Bolton comic Kay and fuelled the row further — calling himself a “real northerner”. Gallagher wrote: “Listen up fat f*** as a real northerner I was brought up 2 say s*** 2 people's faces not behind their back. Live forever LG.”

A Facebook group set up in appreciation of Kay's remark has gathered more than 98,000 fans.

Gallagher capped his controversial night at the Brits last night by asking to go off and take “loads of class A drugs”.

He was interviewed by his wife Nicole Appleton for ITV2's live backstage coverage.

Just as the interview came to an end, Gallagher left his wife red-faced as he blurted out: “It was nice, it was nice.

“Now can we all take loads of class A drugs?”

On stage, Gallagher had thanked former Oasis bandmates — but notably left his brother Noel, who walked out last August, off the list.
