Sansa Stark does not want to be used as a pawn in any racist game.

Sophie Turner who plays the character of Sansa Stark in the Game of Thrones denounced the meme of her character that promotes racism. The meme stated that “When it comes to Race and Culture, there should be purity.”

The viral meme contain statements which are usually heard during the ancient times, where royalties should only marry into their own ranks or within the same tribe. It stated that white people should only marry white people.

The 22-year-old actress is known to be active on social media, especially on Twitter. Last January 10, she had a thread explaining that mental illness should not be treated as a joke. She believes that depression is one of the biggest causes of death in Europe and America. And this is because mental illness is surrounded by a lot of stigma. Furthermore, she encouraged people to speak up about their own struggles.

Last December, Turner together with her fiancée, Joe Jonas slammed an article from The Cut suggesting that Priyanka Chopra tricked Nick Jonas into marriage. Chopra is ten years older than her husband. The article further stated that the couple’s so-called love was not real. And that Nick married Priyanka against his own will.

Turner was one of Priyanka’s bridesmaids during the wedding. Well, it seems like the Lady of Winterfell has authority not only in the North but also in Twitter. No less than one hour after her tweet, the mentioned article had been replaced with an editor’s note, stating that it was currently under editorial review and  it did not meet the administration’s approval. It further stated that the management apologizes.

Turner is an English actress. She made her acting debut on the HBO television series Game of Thrones in 2011. For her role as Sansa Stark, she had received four nominations. She made her movie debut in Another Me in 2013. Some of her other movies include Barely Lethal(2015) and X-Men: Apocalypse(2016). Turner and Joe Jonas started dating in 2016.
