Sophie Turner Calls Out Piers Morgan for His Tweets About Mental Health

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, 22, hit out at the comments saying: 'Celebrities 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 per year.

Things kicked off after Morgan tweeted his support for a United Kingdom soap actress' comment that celebrities are trying to make mental health issues fashionable.

Morgan said: "She'll be hammered for saying this, but it's 100% true".

Obviously riled by Piers' comment, Joe Jonas' fiancée Sophie chimed: "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 per year".

According to the World Health Organization, 25% of the world's population will suffer from a mental illness at some point in their lives, but almost two-thirds of people with a mental illness won't seek help. We should teach mental strength & resilience in schools. She added that "there is a danger it can become 'fashionable'".

He added: "They do those with genuine mental illness a great disservice".

'But please go ahead and shun them back into silence'.

Turner noticed his comment and clapped back-hard.
