I’ve never really understood extreme hatred for famous people online. Okay, if they’re a transphobe, or homophobe, or any other kind of ‘phobe’ for that matter - dislike and contempt is rightly deserved, but to hate a man who seemingly just goes around with his guitar and then gets on with his life? I’ll never understand it.

I’m talking about Ed Sheeran and his world tour beginning in Ireland at the weekend. If you were to exist solely on the echo chamber of Twitter, you would think that Ed Sheeran is perhaps the most loathed artist out there.
