Liam Gallagher Responds To Robbie Williams Calling Oasis 'Gigantic Bullies'

“Ultimately, I’m a huge fan of Oasis and [always] was. I was there and I was part of it, and it was fucking unbelievable: incredible hedonism, reckless abandon and rock’n’roll, and ‘let’s turn it to 11, 12 and let’s see where this goes’. It’s part of that competitive nature of me, too,” the English singer-songwriter said at the time. “Also they were gigantic bullies too, to the whole industry, everybody in it – and I didn’t like that. A lot of that still remains inside me. They’re probably different people now but there’s a lot of me that’s like, ‘They’re f**king bullies, them. I don’t like bullies.’”
Liam Gallagher responded to Williams' claims after a fan asked him his thoughts on the comments via Twitter. “I agree with him on the vital ting not on the bully thing,” he wrote. “I’ve never bullied anyone in my life I’m a massive piss taker for sure and probably gone a little too far sometimes, but if I’ve ever hurt anyone’s feelings I apologise.”
The "vital" part of the tweet comes from another comment Williams made during the interview.
“He’s doing fine. And he’s rocking it,” he said about Gallagher. “The great thing about being a fan of Oasis is when Liam comes out with a great album, I can be a fan. The great thing about being resentful towards them is when they don’t, I’m happy. I win on both sides."
"It’s so genuine, Liam’s last album that he put out: there’s like five or six tracks on there that are just like… I’m so glad he exists. I’m so glad that he is a personality out there that’s vital, because there’s not many of them about," he continued. "And especially in this day and age where pop stars can’t say and do and be personalities, it’s fantastic that there’s a Liam Gallagher in the world.”
