Emmerdale fans horrified as thugs rip Matty’s clothes off in vile transphobic attack

Emmerdale fans were left utterly horrified tonight after Matty Barton was targeted in a vile transphobic attack.

In the difficult scenes, Matty was humiliated by his former boyfriend Isaac at the New Year’s Eve party as he and his thug friends ripped off his clothes in devastating scenes.

Matty was attending Tracy and Leyla’s pizza and prosecco night for NYE with friends Victoria and Ellis when he was confronted by his past.

Unfortunately, Isaac recognised that Matty used to be Hannah – who he used to date when they were at school.

Isaac hit out at Matty at the party and labelled him "disgusting" before he and his thug pals were forced to leave.

Later, with his mood being lowered after the nasty confrontation, Matty decided to leave the party early.

However he found himself surrounded by Isaac and his pals.

"I don’t want any trouble," Matty insisted as they got closer.

"Because you don’t have your mates to protect you," Isaac sneered. "Some man you are. But then, you’re not are you… Hannah?"

"My name’s Matty," he grit his teeth.

Isaac continued: "Alright, so why don’t you show us what you’ve got under those clothes?"

Horror flooded Matty’s face as he said: "What? I ain’t showing you anything, Mate."

"Yeah? We’ll see about that," Isaac said sinisterly as he and his friends began pulling off Matty’s clothes.

Victoria discovered what was going on and ran towards them as Matty lay on the ground, pleading for them to stop.

Ellis and his brother Billy quickly followed her and the thugs scampered off. Humiliated, Matty soon took off himself as all the villagers watched in shock.

And viewers were equally heartbroken for Matty and disgusted by the thugs, and flocked to Twitter to express their opinion.
