Ed Sheeran revealed to The Sun on Monday he has decided to part ways with Twitter. The "Shape of You" cites rude comments from Internet trolls as his reason for leaving the popular social media website.

Fans of Sheeran, who currently has roughly 19.2 million followers on Twitter, shouldn't expect to see him sharing his thoughts on the website anytime soon.

Sheeran told The Sun that he didn't appreciate the "mean" comments he's read about himself on the social media website.

"I've actually come off Twitter completely. I can’t read it," Sheeran told The Sun. "I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that."

Mean comments can be hurtful, even for mega-successful musicians like Sheeran. The "Sing" singer claims "one comment ruins your day," but he still has trouble understanding "why people dislike me so much." Sheeran shared that he had received most of his criticism from one musician's fan base in particular:  Lady Gaga's Little Monsters.

"Lady Gaga’s fan base read an interview in which they assumed I was talking about her and they all f—ing hate [me]," he said. "And it wasn’t anything to do with that at all. So I think Twitter gets on a massive steam roll of assuming things and then you get in the s—."

He then added: "I have people like my dad who will have a conversation with me. I don’t have to have someone calling me a whatever."

The "Castle On The Hill" singer's decision to breakup with Twitter came after his headlining performance at Glastonbury Festival in the United Kingdom, which resulted in Twitter users claiming that the singer-songwriter wasn't actually playing the guitar during his set in June. After reading through the accusations, Sheeran took to Twitter to clarify things with his haters.

"Never thought I'd have to explain it, but everything I do in my live show is live, it's a loop station, not a backing track. Please google," Sheeran wrote in a tweet. "Anyway, great night, great atmosphere, family, friends, fun. Love you all."

Moving forward, the "Thinking Out Loud" singer's presence on Twitter won't completely vanish because he intends to use his Instagram posts to populate his Twitter account. Sheeran's last written tweet was posted on June 30, but every tweet from July has emerged through his Instagram account.

British journalist and television personality Piers Morgan doesn't agree with how Sheeran chose to announce his departure from Twitter, according to Evening Standard. During his hosting stint on "Good Morning Britan" on Tuesday, Morgan shared that celebrities should just "quit" Twitter instead of informing the world of their decision.

"I get about 50,000 [nasty messages], doesn’t ruin my day. I love it – especially when they can’t spell," Morgan said on the show. "Celebrities who quit Twitter, you don’t have to quit you just have to stop tweeting. Why do you have to announce you’re quitting Twitter?" 

Susana Ried, Morgan's co-host, came to Sheeran's defense by arguing that the singer "gets criticized on it and now he’s getting criticized for coming off it." However, Morgan stood by his initial point and continued to assert it.

"I love Ed Sheeran but I don’t understand why you have to announce you’re quitting, just stop tweeting," Morgan said. "Tweeting is like little birds in the trees. If you don’t want to tweet anymore, just exit."
