Billie Eilish has been caught up in a new controversy involving her rumoured boyfriend Matthew Vorce after a number of his past tweets have resurfaced on social media.
The 29-year-old actor has been slammed by Billie’s die-hard fanbase after his tweets from a number of years ago saw him use slurs against Asian, Black and LGBTQ+ people, as well as women.
The authenticity of the Tweets and Facebook comments has not yet been verified, however, the historic tweets have gone viral after the rumoured lovebirds were recently spotted out together on a date.
Screenshots of the alleged tweets have surfaced on social media and they see the actor being accused of using the ‘N’ word while also referring to homosexual men as ‘f**s’.
In another tweet from 2012, Matthew seemingly appears to make a savage swipe at singing sensation Adele as he refers to her as a ‘British Miss Piggy’.
