Ed Sheeran has explained his reasons for quitting Twitter
'I can't read it.'

Ed Sheeran has left Twitter because of the constant stream of negative comments he gets from trolls.

Ed Sheeran says he has decided to leave Twitter for now as the negative comments he receives are having a huge impact on him.

“I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I can’t read it,” he told The Sun.

“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.” 

Sheeran was forced to go on the defensive last week after people criticised his Glastonbury performance, accusing him of miming.

“Never thought I’d have to explain it, but everything I do in my live show is live – it’s a loop station, not a backing track. Please Google,” he tweeted to his near 20 million followers.



The 26-year-old says he finds it tough to understand why he is the victim of online trolling, saying:

“The head-fuck for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”

Sheeran will continue to post his Instagram entries to his Twitter feed, but there won't be anything original from the cherubic star (until he's promoting his next album, in all likelihood).
