#mattyhealyisoverparty began trending on social media as fans debated over the clip of the singer rapping backstage at a festival.

The 1975 fans have hit out at lead singer Matty Healy after he appeared to say the 'N word' in an Instagram live video yesterday (July 9th).

The band were in Glasgow to perform at the TRNSMT festival when guitarist Adam Hann posted the clip of Matty dancing backstage and rapping along to 'Caroline' by Amine.


At the start of the video, he appears to rap, or at least mime along, to the lyrics "Killa, West side n*gga".

Matty and the band both quickly became trending topics on Twitter as did the #mattyhealyisoverparty as fans took to social media to condemn the video:








However, many other groups of fans jumped to the singer's defence, causing some major debate on Instagram, Twitter and the band's Reddit page.

No official comment has been released yet from anyone within the band's camp. We'll keep you posted if a statement on the situation appears.
