Sophie Turner Calls Out Piers Morgan for Mental Health Remarks

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner slammed British TV personality Piers Morgan after he criticized celebs who chose to talk about mental illness.  

The back-and-forth began when actress Beverley Callard was quoted as saying she thinks stars try to make mental struggles “fasionable.” Morgan concurred, tweeting: “She’ll be hammered for saying this, but it’s 100% true.”

Turner responded, tweeting that talking about mental illness is important, especially considering it “affects 1 in 4 people in UK per year.”

Social media users applauded Turner. “Ugh. People who think there is no problem is the problem,” said Twitter user @DrunaRawr. “No one WANTS a mental health issue, but those who suffer absolutely do not want others to feel isolated. The mental health system in the US is a JOKE!! Thank you for being our voice @SophieT !!”
