Ed Sheeran is the coolest friend ever!
He recently stuck up for his BFF Taylor Swift after the Westboro Baptist Church picketed one of her shows!
It all went down at their Kansas City show over the weekend when the Westboro Baptist Church group gathered outside the concert venue to protest.
"To the people picketing outside the arena. Keep your homophobic views to yourself, it's 2013," Ed tweeted in response to their protest.
According to the group leader, Taylor is seen by the group as a "whore" because of her dating lifestyle and they wanted everyone to know that.
"@TaylorSwift13 works her 'girl next door' country-singer shtick, while hopping from one young man to the next and strutting across the world stage like a proud w***e," the church said in a press release.
Taylor has stayed quiet about the whole situation. The group has shown up and picketed several of her shows before!
Do you think it's cool Ed decided to speak out about the whole thing? Do you think it's ridiculous Westboro Baptist protesters picket Taylor's show?
