‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Denies Using The N-Word Because She Clearly Said Something Else
Sophie Turner has responded after fans have incorrectly assumed that she used a racial slur in a video that has been circulating of her and her boyfriend Joe Jonas in the gym.
The “Game of Thrones” star and her singer boyfriend appeared in an Instagram video posted by fitness guru and DJ Brendan Fallis that he later deleted, according to E! News. In the short clip, Turner can be heard saying what many interpreted as “what’s up n***a,” but that’s obviously not what she said.
The 21-year-old actress has since cleared up the misconception and made it clear that she would never use such a term so casually.
“I used the word ‘motherf**kers’ in a recent video posted in an Instagram story and not a hateful racial slur that has been suggested,” Turner told E! in a statement.
“I am incredibly upset that anyone would think otherwise, and I want to make it clear that I would never use such an abhorrent word.”
