"Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner is coming out swinging against claims she used the N-word in a viral video.
The actress met the ire of the internet earlier Tuesday, after a video featuring her, Joe Jonas and DJ/fellow gym patron Brendan Fallis working out at s10 gym in NYC was uploaded. The account which posted the clip accused Turner of saying "the n word casually," before laughing about it.
But Turner told TooFab she would never say that word.
"I used the word ‘motherf*ckers’ in a recent video posted in an Instagram story and not a hateful racial slur that has been suggested," she said in a statement. "I am incredibly upset that anyone would think otherwise, and I want to make it clear that I would never use such an abhorrent word."
In the video -- which has since been deleted from Instagram -- Fallis said "look who came in today," before panning his phone over to Jonas and Turner. It's then Turner makes her remarks.
