The post Matty Healy Deactivates Twitter Account After Getting Torched by Lucy Dacus appeared first on Consequence.
In a since-deleted tweet posted to the account @mattyfrnglomg (which is believed to belong to Healy), the singer wrote: “I told Lucy Dacus that ‘Boygenius’ had inspired me and [drummer] George [Daniel] to start a new band called ‘Girlretard’. I don’t really hear from her that often.”
After invoking her supergroup trio, Dacus set the record straight on the frequency of her correspondence with Healy by replying, “you don’t hear from me at all.” In a separate tweet, Healy issued one last message in retreat, saying “Yeah this never goes well does it” before deactivating the account. See Dacus’ still-standing burn below.
In June, Healy was publicly called out by Rina Sawayama during her Glastonbury set for racist remarks made on The Adam Friedland Show podcast. The 1975 singer notably deactivated his verified Twitter account in 2020 after tweeting a message of support for Black Lives Matter while simultaneously promoting one of his band’s songs.
Though Healy has made more appearances with Dacus’ boygenius bandmate Phoebe Bridgers, the two previously shared the stage in 2022 at Jack Antonoff’s Ally Coalition benefit concert along with Bridgers, Weyes Blood, and Trey Anastasio.
