Ed Sheeran Quits Twitter Over Trolls (& Lady Gaga!)

British pop sensation, Ed Sheeran has decided to quit Twitter because of the torrent of abuse he was receiving from trolls, including Lady Gaga’s fans – known as ‘Little Monsters.’

Sheeran explained:

“I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I can’t read it. I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that. One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it. The head-f—k for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”

The singer went on, revealing one time when he received a barrage of abuse from lady Gaga fans who wrongly believed a comment he made in an interview was about her:

“Lady Gaga’s fanbase read an interview in which they assumed I was talking about her and they all f—ing hate. And it wasn’t anything to do with that at all. So I think Twitter gets on a massive steam roll of assuming things and then you get in the s—.”

People definitely need to relax with the social media abuse. A tip to ‘Keyboard warriors’ – don’t say anything in social media that you wouldn’t say to that person’s face…

Or perhaps, even better, as my gran used to say, ‘If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”
