Fans were quick to praise the star, with one writing: "Great post, always hard to do but it's good to focus on the love you get rather than the haters and so many people love you," while another added: "Hahahahaha I'm reading Harry Potter atm too." In Ed's original interview with The Sun about Twitter, he was quoted saying: "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-[expletive] for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much."

I wish all people on the internet would be positive and loving and apart of creating an online community that is kind and empowering, not hateful and mean. No reason to tear down an artist simply because they are on top. Work harder to be kinder everybody. That should be your first duty to humanity."
