Sophie Turner slams Evangeline Lilly as "f***ing stupid’ for refusing to isolate

Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has called out Evangeline Lilly for refusing to self isolated to stop the spread of coronavirus.

While practicing social distancing with her husband Joe Jonas on Saturday night, Sophie had a very clear message for the Lost star.

The 24-year-old appeared to publicly turn on Evangeline, who recently made comments admitting she was prioritising her “freedom” over self-isolation, despite global concern over the spread of COVID-19.

Over 13,000 people have been killed by the virus so far, with almost 27,000 confirmed cases in the US.

Sophie did not mention the Avengers actress by name but the mention of “freedom” left little doubt as she called the decision “f***ing stupid” before urging fans to self-quarantine to protect vulnerable members of society.

Indirectly calling out the actress, Sophie ranted: “Stay inside, don’t be f***ing stupid, even if you count your freedom over your, I don’t know, what is it, like, your health.”

Husband Joe turned to look at the camera with a comically shocked expression, nodding in agreement.

Sophie continued: “I don't give a fffffff about your freedom. You could be infecting other people, other vulnerable people around you by doing this.

“So stay inside guys. It's not cool and it's not big and it's not clever. And that's the tea.”

Evangeline ruffled feathers on Monday when she announced she was refusing to self-isolate and was carrying on “business as usual,” dismissing the pandemic as little more than a “respiratory flu”.

The Ant-Man and wasp star posted a snap of her drinking tea to her Instagram and revealed she would be taking her kids out and still going about her day as normal, despite desperate calls from governments around the world for everyone to stay home.

With the image, she wrote: “Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing. #businessasusual”

The post was met with outrage from fans who slammed the star in the comments. But Evangeline continued her blasé approach, and was adamant she would be exercising her “freedom”, calling the coronavirus a “respiratory flu” and claimed things were getting “too close to Marshall Law [sic].”

Mum-of-two Lilly, who found fame in the hit series Lost, took to the comments section to double down and make her position on the global pandemic abundantly clear: “'Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives. We all make our choices.”

But fans did not take kindly to this, with one referencing her role as Wasp in the Marvel film, slamming: “You shouldn’t be playing a superhero when you’re the villain.”
