Sophie Turner got into some hot water recently after an Instagram video was posted of her using what sounded like the N-word.
Once the video hit the interwebs, social media, as a whole, freaked out. This also came during a time when other Caucasian women made controversial statements about race, including Julieanna “YesJulz” Goddard's picture posting of a racist T-shirt and Miley Cyrus’s hypocritical statements about hip-hop.
The Game of Thrones actress is now denying that she even used the word, even though it’s on video, and claims she said, “m****rf*****s” instead.
“I used the word m****rf*****s in a recent video posted in an Instagram story and not a hateful racial slur that has been suggested,” Turner said in a statement to Page Six. “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.”
In reviewing the video, it does sound like she uses the racial slur… Guess you’ll have to be the judge of that.
