The former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown has become something of a source of ridicule and criticism in the last 12 months after making several anti-lockdown and anti-vaccination comments on Twitter.

The singer, best known for tracks such as ‘Made of Stone,’ ‘FEAR’ and ‘I Am the Resurrection’ has shared numerous anti-vax statements on social media since the Covid outbreak began. Most recently he has encouraged festival promoters to not collaborate with the government and SAGE and that the pandemic has been run by the Bill Gates Foundation.

On Friday, the 58-year-old claimed that he will never sing in front of a crowd that ‘must be vaccinated as a condition of attendance.’

As shocking as that statement was, it was only bettered by a response that Brown received in his comments. A Twitter user going by the name of Harry McNally quipped that Brown popularity might be waning by saying his boast about not playing in front of a crowd that had to have had the vaccine was “up to Butlins surely?”

The mocking response to the Mancunian rock star soon went viral had has been shared more than one thousand times and received more than 12,000 likes.

Even Piers Morgan thought it was hilarious.

As of the last report, more than 15 million people in the UK have already received their first vaccination against coronavirus with every adult in the country expected to have been given their first dosage by the end of July.
