Matty Healy can’t stop being one of the worst people in the world.
Not content with making hateful comments about Black people, Asians, gay people, women, and Inuits, Healy has now added making tasteless jokes not only belittling one of the best bands in the world because they are women, but also using a classless ableist slur.
The 1975's Matty Healy says he told Lucy Dacus of boygenius that the group inspired him to start a band called “Girlr*tard.” pic.twitter.com/R5NEYfrrI8
Dacus, who makes up boygenius along with Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker, has since clapped back, retweeting his tweet and saying “you don’t hear from me at all.”
It’s honestly surprising at this point that Healy would hear from any women ever.
This is just the latest example of Healy, the lead singer for The 1975 who unsuccessfully tried dating Taylor Swift, making a complete ass of himself.
Healy, who is straight, seems to consider himself to be the best LGBTQ+ ally in the world, and he shows this by kissing other straight men on stage. Recently, he did it at a Malaysian music festival, where homosexuality is illegal. The move caused the entire festival to be canceled, leading local artists and vendors to lose out on being paid. The local LGBTQ+ community also condemned the stunt, saying it pushed “back any progress queers in Malaysia could have made in the past century.”
