Ed Sheeran temporarily quits Twitter after backlash over his Game of Thrones cameo

Ed Sheeran finally made an appearance on Game of Thrones during the seson 7 premiere and it soon turned into a nightmare for him as many fans of the show showed their displeasure over his role. Sheeran had a very small role in the episode, which included just two lines, apart from the “Hands of Gold” song that he was singing during the scene. The showrunners had been trying to get Ed Sheeran to play a cameo on the show since a long time as Maisie Williams is a big fan of his and they wanted to surprise her by letting her share some screentime with Sheeran.

However, many fans of the show weren’t impressed by his presence in the episode as they felt that there efforts weren’t taken to disguse his character in the episode, as has been the case with the other celebrity cameos in the past, where it was difficult to spot them. Other people wished that Arya should’ve killed his character. Here are some of the reactions:

After the episode aired, his account vanished from Twitter without any explanation. However, the account was back on Twitter after few hours but his Twitter bio now reads, “I don’t use this anymore, please follow me on @teddysphotos on instagram, lots of love x.” Sheeran has previously talked about all the negativity that he encounters on Twitter. “I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that,” said Sheeran.

Many of his fans were upset that he decided to delete his account after being criticized for his role and they felt that the criticism was unwarranted.
