The 1975 Frontman Matthew Healy Criticized For Stepping On S. Korean Flag
South Korean netizens were recently disappointed by The 1975 frontman Matthew Healy, as the nation is known to have much admiration for the band’s music, after discovering that the rockstar uploaded a selfie of him stepping on the South Korean flag.
Many netizens have been talking about how they loved the band’s music but now wanted to stop listening to them while also expressing their anger by leaving comments saying they wish that the band would never set foot back in South Korea again.
Below is the photo that sparked the controversy.
Matt Healy has not responded to the criticisms and has deleted the post ever since netizens began to leave comments of criticisms.
What was supposed to be a moment of happiness for fans of The 1975 in South Korea has unfortunately turned in to something completely different at the moment.
We understand that your boots were really cool Matt, but maybe stepping on a country’s flag wasn’t the smartest thing to do?
