Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, 21, is lashing out at paparazzi in defense of child actors. Specifically, the cast of Stranger Things.

The 21 year old who famously portrays Sansa Stark in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones went off in an epic twitter tirade adding “Imagine you, as a parent, walking with your 13 year-old… seeing a fully grown adult pointing their camera phone at your kid… You would do anything… to delete that person’s photograph, and remove your child from that situation…”


The thread is getting lots of action and reaction online with fans mostly in agreement: LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE!

How did this all begin? Well, apparently, 14 year old Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler in Stranger Things, decided to NOT stop for a spontaneous ‘meet and greet’ with some ‘fans’ who were waiting for him outside his hotel room. The fans got upset and took to social media to bash him for not giving them the time of day.

“How dare you shun and demean that child when they don’t post for an adult stranger’s photograph or walk over and talk to them when they take that NOT CONSENTED FOR photo” – @SophieT
