Ed Sheeran has deleted a tweet asking his fans to stop meeting him at the airport and replaced it with the word "whatever" after a torrent of abuse on social media.

"Please stop coming to airports to meet me, I really appreciate the love but getting off of long haul flights I'm not in the best of states," Sheeran tweeted on Tuesday morning.

"No disrespect whatsoever intended, I always take time with fans where I can, just airports are awkward."


The tweets didn't go down well with fans.

"edsheeran it's because of the fans you're getting these long haul flights. Don't be so naive, this comes with the territory," Fiona wrote.

"Ed Sheeran is lucky he has the fanbase that would even come see him at the airport," Mikayla wrote.

"You can't really tell people not to go to the airport..." Livia Than wrote.

Deleting the tweets did not stop the discussion.

"For the record edsheeran sent out a moderately prissy tweet about not meeting him at airports and then deleted it" Margaret Omencene wrote.

But there were some fans who came to his aid.

"Ed sheeran doesn't deserve to get hate just because he asked for fans to stop coming to airports to meet him he does so much to make us happy," one fan with the Twitter name Ed Sheeran naked wrote.

"edsheeran the airport staff are lucky to get a grunt after I get off a long haul flight, I feel you," Gabby wrote.
