Liam Gallagher went full savage on a Twitter user who made a joke about the late George Michael.
Gallagher tweeted his disbelief as the news was coming on George's death.
"It better not be true about George Michael," Gallagher wrote to his 1.4 million Twitter followers.

But in a since-deleted reply to that tweet, a Twitter user (@Migualez) made a joke mocking George's 1998 arrest in a public restroom in Beverley Hills, California.
Gallagher directly replied to the Twitter user, writing: "Your [sic] a massive c**t good job your [sic] a nobody as if be coming down your chimney and volleying you in the face."
Liam has since paid tribute to the 80s pop-icon by posting a link to George's 1990 single 'Praying For Time' on Boxing Day.

Since his passing, stories about George's kindness have poured on social media, with Richard Osman recalling a story about how George once offered to pay for the IVF treatment for a Deal or No Deal contestant.
A woman on 'Deal Or No Deal' told us she needed £15k for IVF treatment. George Michael secretly phoned the next day and gave her the £15k.

It seems that this act of kindness wasn't a one-off. In 1997, George lost his mother, Lesley, to cancer and almost 10 years after her death he played a special free concert in north London for NHS nurses as thanks for the care they gave her.
George was also among the stars involved in the original Band Aid single 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' which raised more than $24 million (£19 million) for famine relief in Ethiopia.

He has also helped numerous children with donations to Childline and supported other organisations, including HIV charity the Terrence Higgins Trust, and Macmillan Cancer Support.
George passed away from a suspected heart failure on Christmas Day. In a statement, the musician's publicist said: "It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period.
"The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage."
