Ed Sheeran made his long awaited Game of Thrones debut last night and let’s just say, people were not impressed.
Fans took to Twitter to express their dismay at Sheeran’s cameo, which included him singing and then doing a dramatic turn-around.
The scene took place with star Maisie Williams, who is apparently a huge fan of the singer. In fact, co-creator of GoT previously said at a SXSW panel,
“For years, we tried to get Ed Sheeran on the show to surprise Maisie, and this year we finally did it.”
We find that pretty adorable, but not everyone agreed. Our favorite tweet perhaps was from Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder who wrote, “I’m forced to listen to ed sheeran songs 67 times a day bc it’s the only shit on the radio & now my #GameOfThrones isn’t even a safe place.”

LOL, ok we can’t blame her for that one. Sheeran’s “Shape of You” is literally everywhere these days.
Below are a few more of the tweets from the evening ranging from appalled to annoyed to downright angry.

I can’t stop laughing. What’s more bland than Liam Gallagher? Ed Sheeran.

Just watched new #GameOfThrones and it was excellent — apart from the stupid Ed Sheeran cameo, which took me completely out of the drama.
