These days, there are people who can find something wrong with anything, so this isn’t shocking. Ed Sheeran is being underdressed-shamed.
Last Sunday, Ed and Beyoncé both performed at the Global Citizen Festival in South Africa. And when they shared the stage to do “Perfect”, Beyoncé wore an elaborate pink dress, while Ed wore a t-shirt and jeans. (Here’s video.)

People mocked Ed for being underdressed, and some argued that this demonstrates a double-standard for men and women at the top of their game. But others pointed out that this is the style that both performers generally feel most comfortable with.
In any event, Ed joked about it on his Instagram story.
