Taylor Swift’s fans are speaking up.
The Grammy winner’s supporters have penned an open letter asking Swift to address Matty Healy’s many controversies amid their rumored romance.
The #SpeakUpNow campaign requests that Swift, 33, give “more than a simple apology” for the bigoted remarks that the 1975 frontman has made headlines for in the past.
“Use your platform responsibly and intentionally,” the statement asks. “Advocate for inclusivity, celebrate diversity and promote empathy and understanding.”
The letter acknowledges that while Swift has the freedom to make her “own choices and form relationships,” she should “challenge harmful ideologies and inspire followers to join [her] in creating a more just and equitable world.”
By “staying silent” on Healy’s actions, the statement accuses the “Shake It Off” singer of “perpetuat[ing] hatred and contribut[ing] to systemic oppression undermines the progress that was made towards equality and understanding.”
The social media declaration came two weeks after Swift revealed the upcoming release of her re-recorded “Speak Now” album, which originally came out in 2010.
Some of the songwriter’s fans have tweeted proof of their order cancellations for the July re-release.

Swift, who has been romantically linked to Healy since the beginning of the month, has yet to comment on the open letter.
Since the English musician has been spotted watching Swift’s concerts, visiting her in the recording studio and kissing her at Casa Cipriani, his controversies have resurfaced.
Not only has Healy made headlines for kissing fans and eating raw meat at his band’s shows over the years, but he found himself under fire in February for comments made on the “Adam Friedland Show” about Kanye West and Ice Spice.
He also recalled the podcast host walking in on him watching “hardcore” porn on “Ghetto Gaggers,” a site known for videos humiliating and brutalizing women of color.
His romance with Swift comes on the heels of her breakup from actor Joe Alwyn, whom she dated for six years.
