Mean Tweets Might Have Caused Ed Sheeran To Delete Twitter Account

It looks like Ed Sheeran's stepping back from Twitter after his cameo on "Game of Thrones." 

His unnamed role in the series premiere Sunday mainly had him singing and handing food over to Arya Stark. 

Critics largely panned his role, calling it "a dud" and "far too distracting to be really worthwhile."  

Many on Twitter agreed, though in less kind terms. 

And for a while on Monday night it looked like Sheeran deleted his Twitter account. By Tuesday morning, it was reactivated but the account had minimal followers and it was missing the past few years of tweets.

Earlier this month, Sheeran said he was going to stop reading comments on Twitter, saying the site was only full of people saying mean things.
