While the internet has made many aspects of life much easier, the major downside of the world wide web is those trolls that hide behind their keyboard. 

These people are the reason why we no longer have one of our favourite artists, Ed Sheeran, on Twitter. 

The hitmaker has revealed he isn't active on Twitter anymore because it is full of people saying mean things.

Ed Sheeran is a wise wise man.

A post shared by ZM (@zmonline) on

He said: "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**k for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much."

Ed also detailed a particular bad Twitter incident he had when  Lady Gaga fans sent him a barrage of abuse after assuming something he had said in an interview was about her.

He told The Sun newspaper: "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**t."

While many see fame as this glamorous thing, Ed is wary of the pitfalls of fame.

He said: "Most people jump over the edge. I can see how that can happen. I steer away at the right point, thankfully. I look at Elton John and how much he f***ed up when he was younger. You learn a lot from that ...

"Super yachts and hotels and hanging out with famous people are not the trappings of fame, for me it's falling out with family members and friends over money."

Forget about the haters Ed, coz we <3 ya!
