Social media went into overdrive earlier this week after Ed Sheeran made a cameo appearance in the first episode of Game Of Thrones’ season seven.
Unfortunately not all comments made about Ed’s performance were positive and shortly after he deleted his Twitter account, leading many to believe it was related to the GOT backlash.
Of course, Ed’s decision to delete his Twitter after the GOT episode aired caused even more of an uproar online as fans reacted to his sudden disappearance.
Ed is now back on the social media platform, but upon re-entering Twitter Ed had deleted all of his tweets, except three which date back to 2013 and about 20 from this month.
He has since clarified why he deleted most of his tweets with this message:
Either way, it seems that Ed isn’t a big fan of Twitter. His bio reads:
“I don’t use this anymore, please follow me on @teddysphotos on Instagram, lots of love x”
Earlier in the month Ed told British publication The Sun that he had stopped using Twitter due to nasty comments.
“I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I can’t read it,” he said.
“I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that. One comment ruins your day.”
The 26-year-old singer appeared in Game Of Thrones as a Lannister soldier who meets Arya Stark.
The scene begins with Ed and his fellow soldiers sitting around a campfire whilst Ed sings.
The group offers Arya, played by Maisie Williams, something to eat and drink whilst she sits next to Ed on a log.
Ed’s performance is subtle and there’s nothing offensive about it, but unfortunately it seems that the internet can’t appreciate a good thing when it happens.
Fingers crossed we see Ed on the small screen again sometime soon!
