5 Famous People Who Quit Twitter and Social Media because of Cyberbullying (Ed Sheeran)
The internet is a place where people can gather for good and bad. Unfortunately, many people prefer to be anonymous and hate from behind their keyboards; cowards in a room who feel entertainment at the despair of others.
Ed Sheeran (July 3rd, 2017)
Ed Sheeran recently “quit” Twitter due to haters leaving comments. The singer-songwriter said that he would go on the social media platform and find “nothing but people saying mean things”.
“Twitter’s a platform for that,” he continued. “One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it. The head-fuck for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”
Following the reports he posted a message on Instagram on 4 July where he wrote: “Loads of Hoo-har about me quitting stuff. I haven’t quit anything, I’m just not reading anything, except Harry Potter.”
