While speaking on the Matt Morgan podcast, the Oasis founding member admitted that he thinks masks are pointless in defense against the virus.
“It’s not a law,” Noel claims, referencing the UK’s suggested practice of wearing one in public spaces. “There’s too many f***ing liberties being taken away from us now…I choose not to wear one. If I get the virus it’s on me, it’s not on anyone else… it’s a piss-take. There’s no need for it…They’re pointless.”
“I was going up to Manchester the other week and some guy’s going, ‘Can you put your mask on,’ on the train, ‘because the transport police will get on and fine you a thousand pounds,” he explained, recalling a chance meeting with a mask-wearer. “But you don’t have to put it on if you’re eating.’ So I was saying: Oh right, this killer virus that’s sweeping through the train is gonna come and attack me, but see me having a sandwich and go, leave him, he’s having his lunch?”
Noel continued, “Why do you have to wear one when you’re having a f***ing haircut, but you don’t have to wear one in the pub?”
Other celebrities have spoken up and refuse to wear a mask, including this big name athlete.
