UPDATE: Ed Sheeran restored his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon, and on Wednesday, he finally explained its disappearance. “Last i’ll say on this. I came off Twitter Coz I was always intending to come off Twitter, had nothing to do with what people said about my game of thrones cameo, because I am in game of thrones, why the hell would I worry what people thought about that. It’s clearly f–kin’ awesome,” he wrote on Instagram. “Timing was just a coincidence, but believe what you want.”
What happened to Ed Sheeran‘s Twitter profile?
The singer-songwriter deleted his Twitter account not long after HBO’s Game of Thrones fans mocked his cameo in the Season 7 premiere. Sheeran, 26, has yet to explain why his account vanished, but the timing is curious: its disappearance occurred less than 24 hours after he appeared on the series. He guest-starred as a Lannister soldier, who sang a campfire song and offered Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) some grilled rabbit. (The actress is a fan of his in real life.)
