In a statement on Twitter, the British singer said he was actually mimicking Game of Thrones.

“From re-enacting The Beatles Abbey Road crossing to spontaneously playing out Game Of Thrones, we were simply larking about pre show. Understandably this has been misinterpreted and I send my deepest apologies to those who have been offended,” he said.
