Liam Gallagher has hit back at a Twitter user who made a joke at the expense of the late George Michael.
Gallagher initially tweeted his disbelief at the news of Michael’s death, which was announced by his publicist on Christmas Day, who said that the ‘Faith’ singer had “passed away peacefully at home.”

“It better not be true about George Michael,” Gallagher wrote on the social platform, where he has 1.4 million followers. In a since-deleted reply to that tweet, a Twitter user by the name of @Migualez then made a joke that referred to Michael’s 1998 arrest in a public restroom in Beverley Hills, California.
Incensed by the response, Gallagher directly replied to the Twitter user, writing: “Your a massive cunt good job your a nobody as if be coming down your chimney and volleying you in the face.”
Gallagher paid tribute to the late singer yesterday (December 26) on Twitter by posting a link to Michael’s 1990 single ‘Praying For Time’.
