Sophie Turner Just Annihilated Piers Morgan For Mental Health Tweets

Sophie Turner

"Tw*t" Piers Morgan slammed by GOT "snowflake" actress in mental health spat A war of words has exploded between morning TV host Piers Morgan and Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner over mental health.

It comes as Piers retweeted an article with the headline, 'Beverley Callard says celebs are trying to make mental health problems "fashionable"'.

He tweeted to his 6.52m followers: "She'll be hammered for saying this, but it's 100% true".

"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 United Kingdom [sic] per year", she wrote.

'But please go ahead and shun them back into silence'. "I think we are now definitely chipping away at the stigma". We should teach mental strength & resilience in schools. "The only way to get rid of the stigma is to be open about mental illness". She added that "there is a danger it can become 'fashionable'".

Turner has spoken out to raise awareness of the importance of mental health before, saying in a message to her followers on World Suicide Prevention Day earlier this year: "You're stronger than you think".

Sophie continued: "If we can just all speak out about our experiences or our loved ones experiences we can help other people who suffer with mental illness not feel so alone".

Piers replied: "Sadly, I know a lot of well-known people (not The Rock) who've jumped on the "victimhood" bandwagon to get positive publicity for themselves".

"Thank you so much for calling him out on what he said", one person wrote, a typical response.

Coming under fire from other Twitter users, Morgan later "As I've always said, those suffering from genuine mental illness need proper help & support. This concept is only offensive to snowflakes".

While Turner didn't directly respond to his goading, she did post a string of additional tweets regarding mental health.
