Ice Spice’s Looks Mocked By The 1975 Singer Matt Healy, Yungblud Defends Her

February 22nd, 2023

A podcast episode that arrived earlier this month is gaining traction online as people are calling out The 1975 singer Matt Healy. He recently appeared on The Adam Friedland Show podcast, and during the chat, Healy brought up Ice Spice. He claimed he DMed the Bronx rapper before he and the hosts began mocking Ice’s looks. “She’s like an Inuit Spice Girl,” someone said as they all laughed. “This cubby Chinese lady. ‘Yeah, I rap and [make] music.’ Do Inuits talk like that?” Then, the group began making fun of Inuit, Hawaiian, and Chinese accents.

Healy added, “Yeah, that’s what Ice Spice is like.” Then, the group described Spice as an “attractive woman who released one song.” One of the hosts asked Healy, “So, you slide in her DMs. What’d you ask her, ‘Are you a f*ckin’ Eskimo?’” The comments faced minimal backlash when the episode was first released, but Yungblud made his grievances known.

Not long after the podcast episode aired, Yungblud fired off a tweet. “Love listening to three privileged white dudes sit around and objectify a young black female artist who’s blowing up,” he wrote. “Welcome to your 30’s i guess.” Healy took issue with Yungblud’s response and, in turn, uploaded a video mocking the singer. This isn’t Healy’s first controversial run-in; weeks ago, he was accused of giving the Nazi salute during one of his performances. Fans questioned if he was anti-Semitic or doing it as satire.

Meanwhile, reactions to Healy’s remarks about Ice Spice have recently gained steam on social media. People have questioned why he didn’t face more criticism. Healy seems unapologetic over his remarks, which isn’t surprising considering his previous scandals that have permeated the Alternative scene. However, since his comments have gone viral, people have educated him on Ice Spice’s heritage.

Ice Spice Shared Her Background

In November, Ice was tweeting away with fans as several began questioning her ethnic background. To end the discussion, she wrote, “I’m Nigerian, but IDK which tribe. Maybe u right!” she said to someone who claimed she looked Igbo. “Dominican too, Chill sisters.” Check out Matt Healy and the podcast hosts speaking about Ice Spice above around the 19:45 mark.
