Did Ed Sheeran diss his longtime friend Taylor Swift?

And were Ed’s unkind words captured on camera?

That’s the theory circulating among Swifties thanks to a few seconds of footage that are currently making the rounds on Twitter/X.

Here’s how it all went down:

Taylor’s Big Night

The 2024 Grammys took place on Sunday night, and as you’ve likely heard by now, it was a historic occasion for the music world’s biggest star.

Taylor broke the record for wins in the Best Album category, and she took the opportunity to announce that she’ll be releasing her eleventh studio album in April.

It was one of the biggest nights of her career, and no one could rain on Taylor’s parade.

But some folks think Ed wasn’t happy to see his friend outshine all of her contemporaries on music’s biggest night.

Ed Sheeran: Did He Really Diss Taylor Swift?

The theory is that Ed uttered “bullsh-t” during Taylor’s acceptance speech, right around the time that she announced her new album.

Here’s the moment that started all the drama:

It’s unlikely that Ed openly hated on a close friend of hers during one of the biggest moments of her career.

But Swifties can’t seem to agree on what else he might have said.

“I think he said brilliant. She did a recording with me,” one commenter suggested, according to In Touch.

“I think he said ‘Brilliant. Wow she didn’t even tell me,’” another speculated.

“What did I say? She won over me,” a third suggested.

“Shall we go and have a beer?” a fourth chimed in.

Others noted that Taylor and Ed have a strong personal and professional relationship that dates back over a decade.

“Ed supports Taylor,” wrote one such fan. “Whatever he said it wasn’t nasty.”

Taylor’s songs “End Game,” “Run,” and “Everything Has Changed” all featured Ed.

And the collaboration has worked both ways, with Taylor appearing on Ed’s track “The Joker and the Queen.”

“Me and Taylor first met and wrote + recorded our first song together in 2012, ten years ago now, I’m so so honored to have her on this song,” Ed wrote on Instagram at the time.

“Not only is she the best singer/songwriter in the world but she’s also a very close friend, I’m very lucky to have her in my life.”

We highly doubt that Ed would toss away all those years of friendship and collaboration, all because he experienced a fleeting moment of jealousy.

But if he did, he’ll have an army of angry Swifties to contend with!
