Matty Healy criticized for eating raw steak on stage

Matty Healy shocked everyone with his raw meat performance

Matt Healy, singer of the English pop band The 1975 gave fans something to remember in his performance on Monday at New York’s Madison Square Garden. His antics involved taking off his shirt, getting sensual with a piece of raw meat, pretending to masturbate with it, and then devouring it. 

To make things even more shocking, Healy’s mother, British actress and star of “Coronation Street,” Denise Welsh, 64, watched on through the entire shocking performance. She even tweeted a photo of herself and three other guests outside the venue, captioning it, “Oh, what a night.”

It is unclear what meat the 33-year-old singer used, but it seemed to be some bone-in chop. His reasoning behind the performance is also unknown. 

Fans took to social media to comment on the show offering their share of humorous takes on the event. 

“Mom, dad, why is Matt Healy eating raw meat at the ‘1975’ show. Idk if it’s real meat, also, this was NOT my attempt at anti-1975 propaganda, the show is genuinely good,” one fan tweeted, including footage of the shocking act in the post. 

“Matty pretended to masturbate, do push-ups, and ate raw meat on stage, and YET I’m not surprised,” wrote another. 

Rip to anyone going to this show with their parents,” another commenter joked. 

This comment got a reaction from Healy’s mother. “What about when you ARE the parent!!” Welsh wrote. 

It is not the first time Healy included controversial acts in his performance. During another show, he was seen smoking on a sofa. He then began unbuttoning his shirt and nearly touching his crotch. 

The 1975 is an English pop band formed in 2002 in Wilmslow, Cheshire, England. They are known for hits such as “Love Me” and Chocolate.”
