    Matty Healy appeared to address recent online backlash at a 1975 show in Vienna earlier this week.

    Much of the online criticism leveled at Matty in recent weeks stems from an appearance on The Adam Friedland Show in February, where he participated in a number of racist and misogynistic jokes. The episode has since been removed from Apple and Spotify.

    The criticism resurfaced amid Matty's reported relationship with Taylor Swift. News emerged that the couple had parted ways after around a month together on Monday — the same day that the gig happened.

Will he ever address it? All of these questions and more will be ignored in the next hour."
