Ed Sheeran must have won the Grammy, nothing less, for his groovy number Shape of You, but it seems his popularity did not come in the way of a Pakistani news channel before it referred to the English singer-songwriter as a woman! A Twitter user saw Express news referring to Sheeran as — Bartanvi pop queen Ed Sheeran 2017 ki behtareen gulukara ban gayeen in Urdu, which translates to “British pop queen Ed Sheeran becomes 2017’s best female singer”. Having promptly taken a picture of the ticker text on screen, Imad Kazmi shared it on Twitter, consequently leading to a laugh riot on the Internet.
“Ed Sheeran pop queen aur gulukara? Express news thinks that Ed Sheeran is a female,” he captioned the picture in his tweet which, not surprisingly, got some rib-tickling reactions. Check out some of the reactions the goof-up garnered thereafter.
