During the hit HBO series’ season seven premiere, the 26-year-old “Shape of You” artist’s character made his long-awaited debut. Sheeran’s brief appearance featured him singing a piece that Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi told Billboard was written with lyrics from the book.

The reaction to Sheeran’s appearance was mixed on social media, with many left generally unhappy. “With the addition of Ed Sheeran, can we now officially say that #GameofThrones has jumped the shark?” one user wrote. Another compared the artist’s appearance to a “tree stump in an asphalt road.”

These two users were not alone in their opinions, as many others shared similar thoughts.
