Singer Ed Sheeran who was recently attacked on Twitter by Lady Gaga’s fans after they assumed he referred to her in an interview, told The Sun he finally quit social media platform.
The singer said there is no reason for him to allow people call him all sorts the way most Twitter users do.
He also mentioned that the social media platform is full of people who are always ready to say mean things based on their assumptions.
His Instagram account will automatically generate tweets on the site, but he will not be using it himself.
Ed Sheeran said:
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*** for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.
I have people like my dad who will have a conversation with me. I don’t have to have someone calling me a whatever.
You would have thought comments on a newspaper website could be the mean ones.
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***.
