Ed Sheeran: First Game of Thrones and now the Simpsons

Sheeran, 26, has yet to explain why his account vanished. E!

Ed Sheeran didn't just contribute a stripped-down "campfire version" of his hit "Thinking Out Loud" to last year's Bridget Jones's Baby. "It's like what're we doing here?"

Sheeran might have guessed that an appearance in a show people that feel so passionately about may not have been greeted by absolutely everyone with praise and adoration.

The singer's Twitter account has gone offline.

"This year continues to be equally surreal and wonderful", Sheeran wrote Monday on Instagram when sharing his animated image.

"Shouldn't they have disguised him a little bit more. because it legit was just ed sheeran. thoughts?"

Before he deleted his account, Sheeran had already soured on the idea of Twitter and social media a couple of times.

Sheeran has said before that negative comments directed at him has turned him off to the popular social media platform.

He gave us fair warning, but Ed Sheeran has finally made a decision to scrap his Twitter account altogether now after a stream of hate messages following his 'Game Of Thrones' cameo.

"I've actually come off Twitter completely", he told The Sun. I wish all people on the internet would be positive and loving and a part of creating an online community that is kind and empowering, not hateful and mean. According to EW, Sheeran is a big "Simpsons" fan who even has a tattoo of the show's three-eyed fish, Blinky. "Twitter's a platform for that", he had said.

Earlier in July, Sheeran appeared to leave Twitter following criticism unrelated to Game of Thrones, but then quickly denied he had quit.

His Instagram account has remained active, with his most recent post showing him enjoying a spot of mountain-climbing in Peru.
