While fans rejoiced after spotting Ed Sheeran in Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere, many people argued about his debut into the fantasy world. And after the episode two trailer hinted that Arya (Maisie Williams) would shortly be reuniting with her direwolf Nymeria, some even expressed the uncharitable hope that the giant wolf would soon be eating Sheeran.

Amid the situation, Ed Sheeran deleted his account without any message to the fans. He had later retracted his comments in an Instagram post where he said: “I haven’t quit anything” and said he simply wasn’t reading Twitter comments.
However since the first Game of Thrones episode of season 7 aired, where Sheeran appeared in a scene with Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, GoT fans have taken to social media to complain about his performance.
