It seems that starring on Game of Thrones is not a good experience for everyone. At least it appears that it has not been one for Ed Sheeran. The famous singer decided to temporarily quit Twitter after receiving a lot of criticism for his appearance on the highly successful television series.
Initially, Ed Sheeran gave absolutely no explanation for his decision to quit the social media platform, but it definitely had something to do with his short appearance on Game of Thrones. His starring on the series actually created a mix of criticism and praise on social media. Of course, given these comments, it has been claimed that Ed decided to delete his Twitter to end the criticism.
Sheeran deleted his Twitter less than 24 hours after he appeared on the series. In the show, Ed played the role of a Lannister soldier who offered Arya Stark something to eat. When he was first introduced to the scene, Ed was actually playing a campfire song along with other soldiers.
Ed has not commented on his decision now, but this is not the first time when something like this happens. In fact, Ed had previously given up Twitter because of criticism. The star claimed last year that he closed down his Twitter account because of cyber-bullying. “I can’t read it. I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things,” the famous singer said. “One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it,” he added.
It is yet to see what Ed has to say this time, but one thing is certain: the singer does not like the criticism on social media. He previously claimed that he tries to avoid reading bad things and Ed revealed that he just doesn’t want to read “something and be like, ‘Ugh, well that’s rude.’ I don’t want to choose to do that anymore.”
