Ed Sheeran Responds to ‘Angry’ Comments That He Was Super Underdressed for Beyoncé Duet

Beyoncé and Ed Sheeran took the stage at the Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa, last week and fans still can’t stop talking about it. Now, not because of their performance, but because of their outfits!

Beyoncé graced the stage in a beautiful and very extravagant pink gown with ruffles. While Ed rocked a laid-back fit; a long-sleeved shirt under a T-shirt with some jeans. Their different outfits sent the internet in an uproar with fans criticizing Ed for being wildly undressed. It also sparked conversation about male privilege.

“Ed Sheeran is a 27-year-old man the fact we’ve enabled him to feel it’s ok to dress like this at all, let alone next to Beyoncé really boils my piss,” wrote one Twitter user. Another wrote about the disparity of gender expectations in the music industry saying, “This photo is v v v v representative of what we expect from men and women at the top of their game, isn’t it?

The singer took to Instagram to troll his haters for judging his wardrobe. Rather than explaining why he chose to wear his simple fit, he posted pictures of the actual shirt he wore and where fans could purchase it!

On the next slide of his Instagram Stories, he wrote:

‘Swipe up to ‘get the look,’ with the hashtag #dresstoimpress.

It’s great to see Ed Sheeran taking this situation lightly. A similar situation happened last year which caused him to leave Twitter because he couldn’t take all the negativity on the social media site.

Aside from their wardrobe, fans still enjoyed their duet together at the big festival. Check out a clip of their performance below and share your thoughts in the comment section!
