Ed Sheeran and the words "bad news" rarely go together, but unfortunately someone was able to dig up some dirt on our favorite, sweet, ginger singer. A few years ago, Ed reportedly participated in a freestyle, and used homophobic words in his rap. Say what?!

The Mirror is reporting that back in 2011, Eddie took part in a five minute long freestyle rap battle with rapper Devlin and it was taped. In total PR-patrol, the clip has since been removed from the web.

The newspaper reports that Ed rapped, "Yo, I freestyle to the f*****ty man. I go on the bus and I sleep for a day, then I come back and they're like, Ed, you look like this gay." Ahh, Ed!

Don't freak, yet. Ed's spokesperson reportedly told the paper that he "was sending up rappers who make homophobic remarks. He is clearly not homophobic."

Just two years ago he took to Twitter to address the anti-gay protesters outside Taylor Swift's gig in Kansas."To the people picketing outside the arena. Keep your homophobic views to yourself, it's 2013," he wrote.

He hasn't said anything about this rapping clip, and we doubt he will. We all know Ed's a nice guy, and that people say random crap during freestyles, right?

What do you think about Ed's supposed homophobic rap? Chime in.
