Ed Sheeran recently reached out to a fan, Charlotte, who was furious that a video of her performing a cover of “Castle on the Hill” was pulled from Facebook, although he wasn’t the one who had it pulled.
Charlotte, however, didn’t realize that Ed had nothing to do with the removal and went on YouTube to complain about what happened, and took it out on Ed. (oops) The real issue is that Facebook hasn’t taken any steps to license things like cover videos, where a site like YouTube has.
And even though Ed had nothing to do with it getting pulled her apologized to Charlotte. He said, “I bloody love seeing people cover my songs” and explained that it was yanked by a “bot” from his label. He also said that he was personally going to get it all “sorted out.”
Charlotte gladly accepted Ed’s apology.
