The 1975 frontman pours some (red wine) out for our fallen hero...

The 1975's Matty Healy gave one fan the greatest gift of all at a recent gig - a written sign she can have made into a tattoo. 

Sweet right?

Well, sort of because the phrase Matty chose to write is not exactly one you'd want on your body for the rest of your life. Unless you are a huge fan of a certain dead Cincinnati-based Gorilla...

Yes, of all the available phrases in the English language, Matty chose "RIP Harambe". Because of course he did...

Here's the fan with her cherished sign post-gig.



No word yet on whether or not she's had it done but we'll keep you posted. We doubt she'll be hard to track down - how many girls have RIP Harambe tattooed across their body?

Matty, you are, as ever, a lunatic genius!
