Last week, Robbie Williams reignited his feud with Liam Gallagher, calling upon his fans to tweet abuse at him during a show at his Las Vegas residency.
“If you have enjoyed the show, I have been Robbie Williams,” he said at the end of the show. “And if you haven’t and you are upset about anything, I have been Liam Gallagher.”
He continued: “In fact, if you want to start a hashtag, you can put ‘Liam Gallagher was shit tonight’ if you want.”
