Ed Sheeran responds to 'angry' trolls who said he was underdressed for Beyoncé duet

Ed Sheeran had the, er, Perfect response to trolls who criticised his outfit during a gig with Beyoncé on Sunday,

The British singer performed his song, ‘Perfect’, with Beyoncé at the Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg on December 2, but instead of receiving praise for their vocals, Sheeran received backlash for not dressing appropriately for the event honouring Nelson Mandela. The celebration was to mark what would’ve been the former South African President’s 100th birthday.

Fans thought Sheeran — who was dressed in his signature jeans and graphic tee — could have made an effort to dress up, especially since Beyoncé was frocked to the nines in her fuchsia gown by Beirut designer Ashi Studio.

“Ed Sheeran is a 27-year-old man the fact we’ve enabled him to feel it’s ok to dress like this at all, let alone next to Beyoncé really boils my piss,” wrote one Twitter user, which sparked the whole debate.

The backlash wasn’t lost on Sheeran, who took to Instagram Stories yesterday to poke fun of the hoopla and himself by screenshotting an article of a news article titled, ‘People Are Angry Ed Sheeran Wore a Shirt while Beyoncé Wore Couture During their Global Citizen Performance.’

He then followed up the post with this cheeky comment while promoting the T-shirt brand he was wearing.

“Swipe up to get the look….#dresstoimpress,” he caption a pic of the tee he was wearing, before adding, “Follow @hoax1994 for more of my amazing fashion choices x.”
