Ed Sheeran deletes Twitter account after backlash to ‘Game of Thrones’
Ed Sheeran has deleted his Twitter account only hours after he was criticised for his cameo performance in Game of Thrones.
The singer, who tweeted under the handle @EdSheeran, has erased his entire presence on the site – less than a month after claiming that he was planning to stop using it.
The move comes after he was criticised for making a brief appearance on Game of Thrones, which saw him serenade Arya Stark with a ballad.
One unhappy Game of Thrones fan wrote: “That Ed Sheeran cameo on
#GameOfThrones was remarkably awful. Could he have been roasted by a dragon at least?”
Last month, Ed confirmed that he was planning to stop using Twitter altogether – but later retracted his comments in an Instagram post.
“Loads of Hoo-har about me quitting stuff. I haven’t quit anything, I’m just not reading anything, except Harry Potter. Hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th yo”, he wrote.
Sheeran does still have an Instagram account, which he posts to regularly. The Sun reported that Sheeran had left his Twitter account open and that he had been allowing Instagram to post there automatically, but that he wasn’t using his Twitter account personally anymore. However, a quick search for @edsheeran will kick back the following message, which shows that Sheeran has deleted his account altogether.
He is also set to make another guest appearance in a hugely popular TV series – playing Lisa’s love interest in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons.
