Liam Gallagher has come under fire from mental health campaigners after he labelled bipolar pop star Adam Ant “nutty”.
The Oasis rocker took at aim the 1980s superstar in a recent interview with Britain’s NME magazine.

When asked if he is a fan of Ant, Gallagher replied, “Adam and the Ants? No. Not into a geezer who wears make-up. Especially f**king nutty ones. And tell him ‘You’re not the only c**t who’s off his t*ts.'”

The remark has sparked outrage among mental health awareness campaigners, who have commended Ant – who has battled mental health issues since he was 21 – for openly discussing his bipolar disorder.

Sue Baker from British charity Mind says, “It’s not helpful for people brave enough to be open to be met with name calling.

“Many celebrities, like Adam Ant, have spoken out about their mental health problems and we are so grateful that they do.”
