Idris Elba Hits Back At 'Idiot' Liam Gallagher: 'Next Time Walk With A F**king Hairdresser'

Idris Elba has branded Liam Gallagher an "idiot".

The Luther star hit back at the former Oasis singer after their bust up at an NME Awards bash led Liam to claim Idris "messed up my f**king hair".

In an interview with American GQ magazine, when Idris was asked whether him playing Oasis hit 'Wonderwall' in his recent DJ set was a further dig, Idris replied: “No. F**k that idiot. No.”

Idris and the hat in question

Elba said he just gave Liam a hug and an affectionate rub on the head: "Didn't like that. Don't touch his hair, apparently. F**k off. Next time walk with a f**king hairdresser, then."

Elba said Gallagher's response amounted to: "'I'm a popular rock singer, so I'm going to be mean and f**king horrible to people just because they messed up my look.' F**k off. I played his song because his song's a classic … I don't even know what his songs are about now or what band he's in now. No one gives a f**k, yeah? He was popular when he was in Oasis."

Liam previously told Absolute Radio: “I didn’t steal Idris’s hat, or grab it.

“I don’t go grabbing anyone. He messed my f**king hair up, so I pulled his hat off and booted it across the room, and that’s it.”

When asked if he was intimidated by Idris’s considerable bulk, Liam added: “I don’t give a f**k. I didn’t know who he was.

“I still don’t know who he is and I don’t give a f**k who he is."

Now now, boys.
