Ed Sheeran Responds to backlash over his very usual Apperance next to beyonce during a concert
Ed Sheeran has responded to backlash over his choice of attire while performing next to an extravagantly-dressed Beyonce in South Africa.
A viral photo of the global superstars at the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 in Johannesburg, in which the British singer opted for a causal jeans and tee combo while Beyoncé wowed in a hot pink dress, sparked a heated debate.
However, Ed, 27, saw the funny side of the situation as he took to his Instagram Stories by sharing a story written about the furore and also offered a link for his followers to by his low-key black top.
Ed, who is known for his usual casual displays, shared a story titled: ‘People Are Angry Ed Sheeran Wore a Shirt while Beyoncé Wore Couture During their Global Citizen Performance.’
He went on to offer a closer look at the shirt, which had HOAXUKSINCE94 written on it’, alongside the comments #dressedtoimpress and ‘swipe up to get the look.’
Clearly a fan of the brand, in another story he shared another message: ‘Follow ‘hoax1994 for more of my amazing fashion choices x.’
Pictures from the performance went viral because of the very different way the singers are dressed.
