Ginger Rage: Ed Sheeran Calls Morrissey's Comments "Bollocks!"

We never see Ed Sheeran really get fired up about anything. But what's interesting, is he seemed more bothered by the fact that Morrissey insulted Sam Smith than he was about his thoughts on him. 

To refresh everyone, Morrissey told Boulder Weekly in an interview published on July 9 that "It’s very rare that a record label does something for the good of music. Thus we are force-fed such as Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith, which at least means that things can’t possibly get any worse."

Rude, right? 

Well, Ed wasn't going to let that one go. His full tweet reads "@NME even you guys should think this is absolute bollocks. Taking me out of the equation, Sam was the least predictable success story of the last year," responding to the article written about the incident on NME

Morrissey isn't a stranger to dissing other musicians, but at least this time, someone decided to speak up against him. 

Ed isn't taking it too hard though, he just performed with Elton John on stage at Wembley Stadium, for one of his three sold-out shows in the venue. He seemed to be taking a page from his best friend Taylor Swift on that one. 

I take this moment to cheer on my ginger brother and say "Get 'em, Ed."
