Former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher is calling “f–king bulls–t” on the coronavirus pandemic.
The 53-year-old said he refuses to wear a mask inside stores and on public transportation because he feels the rules are infringing on his rights.
“There are too many civil liberties being taken away from us now,” he said, according to the UK’s Sun. “I went to Manchester the other week on the train and the guy was like, ‘Can you put your mask on, because the Transport Police are going to come on and fine you £1,000? But you don’t have to put it on if you’re eating.’
“I was saying, ‘Oh right, this killer virus that’s sweeping through the train is going to attack us but it’s going to see me having a sandwich and go, leave him, he’s having his lunch.”
The “Wonderwall” singer also admitted he chartered a private jet for a vacation last month so he wouldn’t have to wear a mask, as the protective covering is required on all commercial flights.
“There was six of us and we were like, ‘F going to Heathrow and being marched around and being told what to do,’” he said. “So we went by private jet and it was very pleasant.”
In an attempt to be humble, Gallagher played down his private jet charter.
“It’s not something I do often because they are expensive for what they are but the ballache of having to get on a plane in a mask,” he explained. “I was just like, ‘F–k it.’”
