But in 2005, South Park dropped the iconic and now legendary episode, simply and infamously titled, Ginger Kids.

The episode sees Cartman wake up one morning with ginger hair, which is referred to as gingervitis.

Later on in the episode, having ginger hair is described as a curse…

The episode caused controversy upon release for inciting hatred and violence towards ginger people…

And now Ed Sheeran has explained how the episode ruined his own life, writing:

“Having red hair in England was always a thing that people took the p*** out of you for. But it was never something in America. People never knew what a ginger was in America.

‘That episode of South Park f***ing ruined my life. 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.”

Well well well…

However Sheeran has since said that he’s still a huge fan of the show!
