Here’s Why Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters Cyberbullied Ed Sheeran Off Twitter

Our favourite orange headed Brit broke a lot 19.2 million hearts this week when he announced his departure from a certain social platform.

“I’ve actually come off Twitter completely,” Ed Sheeran told The Sun. “I can’t read it. I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that. One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it. The head-f*** for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”

Well, it turns out Sheeran threw some not-so-subtle shade at the wrong pop icon. Because what’s the only force more powerful than nearly 20 million Sheerios? 67.2 million Little Monsters.

In an interview earlier this year, Sheeran *seemingly* said some sour words about Lady Gaga: “I do not want to be the kind of artist who has had two successful albums and then feels invincible. I have to know when to listen to people, or I’ll end up like those artists you’ve interviewed in recent years. You’ve seen them become the biggest artists in the world, and then suddenly they will say, ‘I know everything!’ And just after, they are no longer at the top,” Sheeran told Beats Radio 1, without naming names. “The smartest thing to do is listen to people who know I do not want to do the Super Bowl years later, after my biggest success, just to prove I’m still relevant.”

Hmmmm… We don’t think he’s talking about Beyoncé here. Lady Gaga’s fiercely loyal fans agreed, and they hit back hard at the underdog-cum-superstar. During the release of Sheeran’s album Divide, Gaga’s Little Monsters made #EdSheeranIsOverParty go viral on Twitter.

Mother Monster (Lady Gaga), who is a preacher of love and positivity, has recently taken to Instagram to show her support for the “Shape of You” singer.

“What an incredible talented artist I LOVE ED. [He] deserves all our love and respect like all humans do. I wish all people on the internet would be positive and loving and apart of creating an online community that is kind and empowering, not hateful and mean,” Gaga captioned a pic of her and Sheeran.

She continued: “No reason to tear down an artist simply because they are on top. Work harder to be kinder everybody. That should be your first duty to humanity.”
