Ed Sheeran no longer posts to Twitter because of continuous blasting from Internet trolls.
In a new interview with The Sun, Sheeran said of the social media platform:
“I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I can’t read it. I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things.”
The UK singer-songwriter still posts stuff on Instagram, and the majority of the posts on his account simply share those pictures and clips
You can assume an artist in his level of fame wouldn’t end up being affected by a couple of mean tweets, but Sheeran has taken enough. “One comment ruins your day,” he said in the interview. “The headfuck for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”
Sheeran’s most recent album Divide marketed 8 million copies in 3 months, and he headlined the Glastonbury festival in the UK.
