British singer Ed Sheeran says a 2005 episode of South Park ruined his life.
“Having red hair in England was always a thing that people took the piss out of you for, but it was never something in America. People never knew what a ginger was in America,” Sheeran said according to The Independent. “That episode of South Park f*cking ruined my life. I was going to America and everyone was like, ‘I love your hair dude.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my God, people like my hair?’ And then I remember that episode coming out and that was just it worldwide for the rest of my life.”
He added: “I hope that if I’m ever on South Park, them taking the piss, I hope I’m allowed to voice my character,” he said. “Even if it’s very offensive, I’d love to voice my character.”
Singer Ed Sheeran says Americans used to like his red hair. That changed when #SouthPark aired "Ginger Kids" 😬
