Ed Sheeran says that a 2005 episode of South Park“ ruined his life.”
The "Ginger Kids" episode from Season 9 of the long-running comedy focused on Cartman bullying children with red hair, claiming they have no souls.
The singer told Slam Radio, “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.”
He added, “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.”
