Rumor has it that Matty Healy, Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, was in high spirits at a concert recently…
Now, Swifties are devastated to hear their 33-year-old idol has broken up with boyfriend of six years Joe Alwyn, but it seems they’re even more shocked to hear who she’s hooking up with.
The backlash from fans stemmed from Hailey’s previous controversial comments, which were deemed racist and misogynistic, and she was less than enthusiastic about Swift being linked to the singer.
The 1975 star, who was linked to the “You Belong With Me” co-star, made headlines just weeks after their split when the pair were seen on several “dates” together.
It sure wasn’t long before fans started pulling out their old receipts. The frontman recently had to respond to some controversial comments he made about rapper Ice Spice during an appearance on his podcast in February.
Hailey appeared on an episode of Adam Friedland’s show in February when two podcast hosts mocked rapper Ice Spice with derogatory terms about her body and race, according to The Washington Post. girl and “Fat Chinese Lady,” while using “Chinese and Hawaiian dialects designed to imitate.”
Later, when asked if she liked the host, Hailey replied: “Yeah, that’s what Ice Spice is.”
And the icing on the cake is that he kept calling her “stupid”.
The 1975 singer later responded to the comments when the group performed in New Zealand, saying: “Ice Spice, I’m sorry. Just because I’m angry doesn’t mean my jokes were wrong. I get it.”
“It’s because I don’t want Ice Spice to think I’m an idiot. I love you Ice Spice.” Sorry, according to The Independent,” he said.
Hailey paid the price for his actions, with musician Azalea Banks putting him in the middle of several heated altercations and urging Swift to reconsider her alleged relationship with him.
Either way, the singer seems to enjoy making headlines for his antics, recently attracting attention for kissing a security guard at a concert in Denmark.
The 34-year-old got down on one knee and powerfully punched the security guards standing near the podium as they performed their ‘Bandit’ track.
I mean, the guard didn’t seem to have any complaints even when he returned in the second round, although social media users weren’t too impressed. “I wish Tyler wasn’t with him,” one user wrote, while another said: “Leave him alone please.”
A third responded in kind, tweeting: “Taylor Swift, there’s still time to move on. Let’s pretend it never happened.”
Although Healy was known to do this during the 1975 show, it seemed to alarm the Swifties.
Let’s hope the duo is planning a surprise collaboration or something, because this isn’t Swift’s best moment, that’s for sure.
