Ed Sheeran performs at the Global Citizen Festival at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
After Ed Sheeran sent the internet in an uproar for being wildly undressed during his duet with Beyonce Knowles, the Grammy victor had a amusing response to it.
Addressing the backlash, Sheerio has since reposted an article on his Instagram story entitled, "People Are Angry Ed Sheeran Wore a Shirt while Beyoncé Wore Couture During their Global Citizen Performance".
Ed Sheeran faced serious backlash over his choice of attire as he joined Beyonce on stage in South Africa.
"He captioned the repost with "Swipe up to 'get the look, '" and the hashtag "#dresstoimpress" clearly poking fun at everything.
'Follow 'hoax1994 for more of my fantastic fashion choices x'.
The controversy sparked hilarious memes of the pair during the performance and a real conversation about male privilege.
According to MailOnline one user wrote, '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 p***'.
Sheeran seems to have taken the criticism in stride, however, and made a decision to inject a little humor into the situation.
