While he hasn’t given a reason, fans speculate that he deleted his account after the criticism he received for his role on the show. Ed starred as a Lannister soldier who sang a song around the campfire and exchanged a few lines with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams).
While some described his performance as “distracting” and “unnecessary,” others praised the singer’s bold move. Earlier this month, the Grammy winner was thought to have quit Twitter after he 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.”
He later appeared on the Today Show and clarified: “I got asked in an interview if I read negative things and I was like, ‘I don’t even go on Twitter anymore.’ But it’s not like I’ve quit it. I still post on Instagram and it goes to Twitter, but I’m just not going to wake up and read something and be like, ‘Oh, well that’s ruined my day.’ I don’t want to choose to do that anymore. There’s so much positivity out there.”
He continued: “I’m just saying … as a human being, we always read the one negative one and ignore the others and I don’t want to do that. It’s just foolish to do when there’s so much love out there in the world, to look at the negative stuff. I’m just choosing not to read it.”
Oops, it looks like he may have just read a bit too much of the negative ones. ~Marriska Fernandes
