Using "easy" as an adverb (that is, to modify a verb) is part of idiom; it is colloquial usage. The correct English adverb is "easily".
The word "easy" has many idiomatic usages. Fowler's "Modern English Usage", 1998 Edition, says:
"Some set phrases containing easy used as an adverb, all of them first recorded in the 19th century, are, however, firmly embedded in standard English: to take it easy (1867), to go easy (on or with, 1850), easy does it (Dickens, 1865), stand easy (1859), etc."
Even Shakespeare wrote:
"As easie might I from my selfe depart,
As from my soule which in thy brest doth lye."
Sonnet 109, 1600
So, using "easy" instead of "easily" is informal and fashionable. It should not be done in formal writing.
However, you can't safely improvise this usage. For example, "It's easily done" is correct, but "It's easy done" is not. You just need to become familiar with the cases where it is allowed. Fortunately, they tend to be common, so you will encounter them fairly often (and soon, once you start listening to English speakers).
