Ian Brown has hit back at criticisms of his recent comments amid the coronavirus pandemic and called out US software developer and entrepreneur Bill Gates in the process. The former Stone Roses frontman hit the headlines last week when he posted a tweet, which appeared to show his scepticism of lockdown, mask wearing and even vaccinations.
