What happened to Ed Sheeran‘s Twitter profile?
The singer-songwriter deleted his Twitter account not long after HBO’s Game of Thrones fans mocked his cameo in the Season 7 premiere. Sheeran, 26, has yet to explain why his account vanished, but the timing is curious: its disappearance occurred less than 24 hours after he appeared on the series. He guest-starred as a Lannister soldier, who sang a campfire song and offered Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) some grilled rabbit. (The actress is a fan of his in real life.)
Sheeran—who went on a self-imposed social media hiatus before recording his album Divide—later clarified his quotes via Instagram, writing, «I haven’t quit anything. I’m just not reading anything, except Harry Potter.» Days later, during an appearance on Today, he told Matt Lauer why he stopped looking at Twitter. «They made such a big deal about this. I got asked in an interview if I read negative things. I was like, ‘I don’t even go on Twitter and read ‘em.’ It’s not like I’ve quit it; I still post on Instagram and it goes to Twitter. I’m just not going to wake up and read something and be like, ‘Ugh, well that’s rude.’ I don’t want to choose to do that anymore.»
