Today in White Apologies: The 1975’s Matt Healy Clears up Comments about Hip-Hop


Matt Healy, vocalist from the 1975 whose band latest album has been blasphemously compared to Radiohead’s OK Computer was on some anti-black clownery in an interview and he’s now had to apologize.

Healy claims that misogyny has been eradicated from rock music (sure, Mick) and that misogyny seems to only exists in hip hop which he ascribes to black men while ignoring the existence of white men in hip hop. The White Man claims the publication misquoted him (sure thing, Mick) and that misogyny wasn’t allowed in rock music (okay, Moot). His attempt to apologize included that PR ready clause of how he loves Hotep Kenny (translation for the white folks: Kendrick Lamar). His fully comments and subsequent apology can be found at the source.
