It started, as many stories with Liam Gallagher do, with a tweet directed toward his brother, Noel.
The younger Oasis sibling took advantage of the 'killer clown' silliness sweeping the world and referred to Noel as a 'scary clown', tweeting a picture of him buying milk the other day:

Well, it's an upgrade from 'potato', we suppose.
When quizzed about the 'clown' pandemic on Radio X yesterday, he expanded on his thoughts about the craze. "I think they're all right. I like a clown. O don’t find them funny, but some of them put a lot of time and effort in," he said. "I'd rather have a clown than the back end of a donkey.”
He added: "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”.
Whatever you say, Liam.
