Ed Sheeran has quit Twitter after receiving overwhelming abuse from trolls.
The singer told the Sun: “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.”
“One comment ruins your day. The headf**k for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”
The star, who has 19 million followers, says he’ll keep the account open, but it will only share automatic updates from his Instagram page from now on.
A quick scan of Twitter finds a number of negative – although not necessarily abusive – comments directed towards the 26-year-old singer.
