Ed Sheeran was bullied about his hair

The trademark ginger hair of Ed Sheeran was apparently the reason he was bullied by his school mates throughout his school life.

In an interview with DJ Nihal and rapper Dave, the Perfect hitmaker opened up about racism and shared incidents where he was bullied in school due to his ginger-coloured hair.

He said, “I hated primary school with a passion; I cried every day. I’m ginger, so I was instantly ripped into from the day I started school – ginger, had a stutter and wore huge glasses… just a bit odd.”

He concluded saying it was his music that bought in confidence in him. “And then I got to high school and started playing guitar, I joined a band and music is just one of these things which gives you confidence and you’re suddenly like ‘Wow, I can actually do something well.”

As they say, all’s well that ends well!
