Are you a Game of Thrones fan who’s met Sophie Turner in real life and completely gushed over “Saaaaaaaaaansa”? If so, you probably won’t like to hear this, but … it turns out you were annoying the shit out of her. In a pair of tweets Friday morning, Turner informed her followers the right way to pronounce her character’s name, adding that the mispronunciations had been “grating on [her] for 7 fucking years.” She deleted the tweets a few hours later, but not before thousands of fans responded begging forgiveness and vowing to never, ever do it again.
