Ed Sheeran Deletes Twitter Account
UPDATE: On Tuesday morning (July 18), Sheeran's account reappeared, but the last tweet from the account is from April 4, 2015.
The action came a day after Sheeran appeared in a guest role on Game of Thrones, which received a mix of positive and very critical reviews. Possibly, Sheeran was sick of receiving the negative comments and decided to leave the social media site, or maybe it was because of this Buzzfeed article highlighting "24 Tweets Ed Sheeran Will Probably Delete Soon." Or maybe was something he had been meaning to do for some time.
On Instagram, meanwhile, Sheeran seemed in good spirits as he shared a photo of him and his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn "climbing mountains in Peru," as he captioned it.
Fans reacted to Sheeran's departure from Twitter mostly with sadness, with the occasional detractor sharing a snide GoT-referencing remark. See some of the reactions below.
