Sophie Turner hits out at Piers Morgan’s tweet on mental health

"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.

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

Turner fired back: "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".

'It's harmful to my mental health.

Callard has spoken candidly about her depression in the past and in the interview makes the argument that some celebrities might just be talking about mental illness because it's trendy, not because it is something they actually experience.

'But please go ahead and shun them back into silence'. She added that "there is a danger it can become 'fashionable'". One of the greatest reasons being, I believe, is because mental illness has so much stigma surrounding it.

In the original article, Callard, who is better known as Liz McDonald in ITV's long-running soap, told Best magazine she was concerned mental health was becoming "fashionable..."

Turner noticed his comment and clapped back-hard.

The actress later shared several tweets about mental health, criticising those who make light of the subject. You will get through this. "You are loved and supported", she concluded.

She then shares four points she wants to get across on mental health.

Do you think Piers is right and celebs fake mental illness?

She continued: 'It's how you get to the other side from being in that black hole, but it's also the other side of the relationship and how they hold it together because sometimes they have to be selfish and take care of themselves in order to take care of the other person'.

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.
