Matty Healy needs Swifties to calm down.

The 1975 frontman reacted to a social media upload blasting Taylor Swift’s fans for wondering whether he tried to “signal” his ex with a recent Instagram post.

The speculation began on Friday when the “Somebody Else” singer, 35, posted Charli XCX’s emotional new song “So I” about her late friend Sophia.

With lyrics about “always” having someone on your mind after “push[ing them] away,” one X user tweeted their belief that Healy’s upload was about Swift, whom he briefly dated last year.

“are we reaching to think that this lyrics on HIS story could be a signal to Taylor??” the fan tweeted over the weekend.

Another X user responded, “We need a new psychological term for a contemporary form of narcissism that is somehow not refracted internally onto the self but rather onto the object of a standom.”

When a screenshot of the reply was shared via Instagram, Healy “liked” the post.

The social media move comes one week after Us Weekly reported that Healy now finds Swift’s “The Tortured Poets Department” album “hilarious” after being “blindsided” by it in April.

Although the record features songs about the Grammy winner’s ex Joe Alwyn and current boyfriend Travis Kelce, many appeared to reference her and Healy’s fling.

He is believed to be the subject of “Down Bad,” “But Daddy I Love Him” and “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived.”

When asked about the album by a paparazzo shortly after its release, Healy claimed to not have “really listened to that much of it.”

However, he noted, “I’m sure it’s good.”

His family members weighed in at the time, with his mom joking she was not “aware” of “TTPD” and his aunt implying there was more to their story.

Swift and Healy have known each other since 2014, with news breaking in May 2023 that they were an item.

After the pair were photographed together on multiple occasions — and spotted kissing by a Page Six eyewitness — many Swifties voiced their disapproval, with some even writing an open letter asking the pop star to #SpeakUpNow over her partner’s past controversies.

The short-lived fling ended in June 2023 over scheduling conflicts and incompatibility, according to “Entertainment Tonight.”

Since their split, Healy has moved on with model Gabbriette Bechtel, who is featured in Charli XCX’s “360” video, a track from the singer’s new “Brat” album.

Swift, for her part, is still going strong with Kelce, with the Kansas City Chiefs player gushing last week about his attempts to stay “grounded” while “living the dream.”
