Sophie Turner slams Trump for inciting use of disinfectant as cure for Covid-19

The Queen in the North told fans to not listen to him

Entertainment Desk April 25, 2020
Sophie Turner isn't afraid of taking matters in her own hands, like the true Queen of the North that she is!

Hindustan Times reported that the Game of Thrones star took to Instagram to share a sleepy video of herself on her story, slamming US President Donald Trump for inciting the idea that administering disinfectants into oneself would help Covid-19.

“Good morning everyone. Don’t drink bleach like Donald Trump says. He’s a f*cking moron,” she said in the video, obviously having just woken up.

Trump suggested on Thursday that injecting disinfectants into people would kill the virus. The comments came after the head of Homeland Security Department’s Technology Directorate said that bleach killed the virus in five minutes and alcohol in 30 seconds.

The comment was met with intense backlash on social media, and the makers of Lysol and Dettol, Reckitt Benckiser, even sent out sombre notices to inform people that their products are not fit for consumption through injection, ingestion or any other way.

Sophie, who is rumored to be pregnant with her first child with Joe Jonas, also slammed actor Evangeline Lilly earlier for her comments on social distancing. "Stay inside, even if you count your freedom over - I don’t know, what is it - your health,” Sophie said in an Instagram Live session, in answer to Evangeline's statement that she values her freedom more than safety measures.

“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," she added.
