Ed Sheeran & Beyoncé Sparked Hilarious Memes Over Their Sartorial Differences
By Izza Sofia, 05 Dec 2018
Ed Sheeran is making waves on social media due to his onstage ensemble—but not for the right reason.
Sheeran together with superstar Beyoncé made an appearance at the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 held in South Africa. The duo sang the hit song Perfect, and the audience was quick to notice that their stage outfits weren’t quite in sync.
Beyoncé appeared on stage in a sculptural fuchsia gown, while Sheeran only wore a black t-shirt layered on top of a white long-sleeved t-shirt and jeans.
The sartorial difference was hard to ignore and it instantly became the talk of the town. One Twitter user hilariously wrote, “Ed Sheeran is actually wearing a 3-piece custom tuxedo. That’s just what white people always look like standing next to Beyoncé.” Other Twitter users came out with funny memes that you need to check out below.

The "double standard" people are crying about seen in the pic of Beyonce and Ed Sheeran is ridiculous. That is simply their character. What if it were CeeLo Green performing with her? Would y'all still be crying? #Beyonce #EdSheeran #NelsonMandela #GlobalCitizenFestival #CeeLo pic.twitter.com/KFwbzUpdW7— TʀᴇʏΩ (@MrTreyTony) December 4, 2018
