"One Comment Ruins Your Day”: Ed Sheeran Quits Twitter
Hateful comments on Twitter have all gotten too much for Ed Sheeran, announcing he’s quit the social media platform.
Sheeran told The Sun he's pulled back from Twitter completely.
“I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that.
“One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it.
“The head-f**k for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”
Ed will continue, however, to use his Instagram, sharing his posts to his Twitter feed.
The Castle On The Hill hit-maker explained that he looks to his family and friends to keep him grounded, despite his global fame.
“I have people like my dad who will have a conversation with me.
“I don’t have to have someone calling me a whatever.”
The 26-year-old also spoke about feeling the wrath of Lady Gaga’s fans after an interview.
“Lady Gaga’s fanbase read an interview in which they assumed I was talking about her and they all f**king hate.
“And it wasn’t anything to do with that at all.
“So I think Twitter gets on a massive steam roll of assuming things and then you get in the s**t.”
Sheeran took to Twitter for the last time in June to defend criticism of his Glastonbury headline set.
He was accused of using a using a backing track during his performance on the Pyramid Stage, but said "everything I do in my live show is live".
Never thought I'd have to explain it, but everything I do in my live show is live, it's a loop station, not a backing track. Please google x— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) June 26, 2017
Anyway, great night, great atmosphere, family, friends, fun. Love you all x— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) June 26, 2017
