The Scottish soft drinks company, Irn-Bru have announced that Noel Gallagher is officially “cancelled”. That’s after the ex-Oasis star branded Scotland a “third world country”.
The singer made the cutting remark in his ongoing war of words with Glasgow singer Lewis Capaldi. Noel has slagged off the performer by comparing him to the to Star Wars character Chewbacca. To which Capaldi changed his name on social media to Chewis Capaldi:
The NME reports that Noel was speaking in a recent interview with Variety when he said that Capaldi should be grateful for the mention from The High Flying Birdman:
“Fucking Chewbacca should enjoy his 15 minutes. The greatest day of his life that I slagged him off or called him an idiot. It’s the greatest day of his f—ing life so far. He’s just thinking, ‘Wow!’ Well, I know you’re Scottish and all that, but f—ing hell! It is like a third world country, but for fuck’s sake, man, you must have had a better day than this. Surely!”
Taking to Twitter, the Scottish drink merchant said: “Noel Gallagher is cancelled.” The post has had more than 1.3k retweets and saw Irn-Bru taking advantage of the viral moment by sharing a link to Liam Gallagher’s Soundcloud.
