"She looks happy two days later she will broke up he is a racist rat," wrote one irked TikTok user. The comment appeared to refer to a string of unbecoming behavior and shocking comment from the 1975 singer.

Back in April, Healy came under fire for comments he made about Ice Spice on the podcast, The Adam Friedland Show.

While Healy questioned what ethnicity Ice Spice was, he made inappropriate impressions of Scottish, Chinese, Japanese, and Hawaiian accents — and the comments were so bad that Apple Music and Spotify removed the episode from listeners' feeds.

Healy also caught flack for doing what appeared to be the Nazi salute while he performed on stage at a show, in addition to crossing lines with concert attendees — and even kissing female fans in the audience.

Given Swift's popularity, many of her fans have taken to TikTok to share videos of Healy's scandals.

"He has always sketched me out and idk why and don’t even know who he is until a month ago," commented a fellow fan on one montage of Healy-related controversies.

Another echoed a similar reaction, "Never heard of this man until now but I have the ick."
