Ed Sheeran slams Westboro Baptist Church after Taylor Swift concert picket

Posted on Aug 6 2013 - 11:40am by Anne Smith

Ed Sheeran has publicly criticised the Westboro Baptist Church after they picketed a recent Taylor Swift concert. The controversial group stationed themselves outside the ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ star’s show after labelling her a “whore” in a recent rant.

The organisation have made a name for themselves in being aggressively homophobic, and recently celebrated the death of “fag-enabler” Cory Monteith from Glee, as well as slamming “perverts” One Direction.

Ed, who is the support act on Taylor’s Red Tour, wrote on Twitter:

“To the people picketing outside the arena. Keep your homophobic views to yourself, it’s 2013.”

Ed and Taylor have become close friends since meeting over a year ago, and the duet they recorded for her Red album – ‘Everything Has Changed’ – was recently released as a single. Ed has recently said that he has additional songs the pair recorded just sitting casually on his mobile phone. We bet there are a LOT of people who’d want to hear those!
