Copycats in the UK have been following the lead of viral pranksters in the US, by dressing as clowns and scaring passers-by – with reports of some attempting to lure children into the woods. Many citizens have been fighting back, with one even dressing as Batman to tackle the clowns.
After he called brother Noel a ‘scary clown’ in yet another Twitter attack, former Oasis and Beady Eye frontman turned solo star Liam Gallagher has defended the craze.
“I think they’re all right. I like a clown,” he told Radio X. “I don’t find them funny, but some of them put a lot of time and effort in. I’d rather have a clown than the back end of a donkey.”
He continued: “If you’re going to be a fucking clown be a proper fucking clown. Don’t be half a clown.
“I think leave the clowns alone”.
Meanwhile, Liam also added that Noel was the one thing getting in the way of an Oasis reunion – saying: “Our kid’s going around like I’ve stabbed his fucking cat. He wants to be in a solo band. If people think me having a dig on Twitter is what’s stopping the band getting back together, they’re mad.
“If they want the band to get back together they’ll have to ask our kid. It’s down to our kid.”
He also compared Noel to Adolf Hitler, and Oasis to Jesus Christ.
