In an interview with The Sun, Ed Sheeran announced that he was quitting Twitter due to the harassment he was getting from various people on the service. Here are highlights:

On leaving Twitter: “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. 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.”

On getting support from people in his life: “I have people like my dad who will have a conversation with me. I don’t have to have someone calling me a whatever.”

On Lady Gaga’s fans: “Lady Gaga’s fanbase read an interview in which they assumed I was talking about her and they all f***ing hate. And it wasn’t anything to do with that at all. So I think Twitter gets on a massive steam roll of assuming things and then you get in the s***.”

Lady Gaga herself found out about the abuse and sent a message on Instagram to condemn it. She wrote:
