As winter is here with the seventh season of “Game of Thrones”, it also leaves its fans in amazement as “Shape of You” of singer Ed Sheeran makes a cameo in the first episode of the season. Celebrity cameo is nothing unusual in Game of Thrones. Earlier several famous artists have appeared in the show; however, Sheeran’s was a step too far for many fans tonight.
Fans of the Game of Thrones did not take the cameo of famous singer emphatically and soon after the episode was aired on HBO, they took to twitter to showcase their dissatisfaction. The episode features Arya Stark traveling on horseback through a wood when she stumbled upon a group of soldiers, with Sheeran, midway through singing a campfire song, turning around for a not particularly subtle close-up.
Soon after that he got pretty extensive camera coverage for the rest of the scene, often appearing in the foreground and background of shots as Arya and the soldiers exchanged banter.
Some of the tweets are here:

However, the excitement of the fans was on extreme regarding the premiere of season 7 of the series which led to the crash of the HBO website. It is reported that HBO could not withstand the excitement of the fans as they barraged the main website, leading to a technical glitch.
