Actors who portray badass characters generally aren’t quite as cool in real life as their onscreen creations.
But that might not be the case with Sophie Turner.
Sophie is obviously best known for her role as the savvy and uber-resilient Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones.
But after today, you might prefer to think of her as Slayer of the Doughy Douche Lord.
We’re talking, of course, about Piers Morgan, a man who’s clung to his last remaining shred of relevancy by burying his nose in Donald Trump’s nether regions and adopting the most obnoxious “hot take” extremist stance on every issue to come down the pike.
Piers is one of those media figures who’s forever railing against the “snowflake” weaklings who he accuses of undermining the manly virtues that form the foundations of the western world.
This, despite the fact that Piers has roughly the same build as the Comic Book Guy on The Simpsons and melts down like Frosty at the Equator every time someone says something mean about him on the internet.
Still licking his wounds after waging a losing battle against Ariana Grande fans, Piers has decided to take on the mentally ill.
We kid you not.
On Wednesday, Piers retweeted an article the unknown-on-this-side-of-the-pond actress Beverley Callard, who is apparently very pissed off that famous people are demonstrating compassion toward people suffering from medical ailments.
“Beverley Callard says celebs are trying to make mental health problems ‘fashionable,'” reads the original tweet.
“She’ll be hammered for saying this, but it’s 100% true.”
What we have here is a couple elderly edgelords presenting an objectively dumb opinion and preemptively patting themselves on the back for all the flak they’re gonna take, as if the impending ratio in any way lends credence to what they’re saying.
By their logic, celebrities who speak out against opioid addiction are glamorizing fentanyl.
These are the obnoxious blatherings like these might prompt you to respond to Piers directly, but we encourage you to hold off.
For one thing, Morgan has a reputation for reporting his critics as “bullies” and having them confined to Twitter jail.
On top of that, Sophie Turner already decimated Piers for you:
“Or maybe they have a platform to speak out about it and help get rid of the stigma of mental illness which affects 1 in 4 people in UK per year,” Turner replied.
“But please go ahead and shun them back into silence. Twat.”
Oof. Piers would probably happily trade places with Theon Greyjoy at this point. All hail Lady Sansa.
