Sophie Turner throws shade at the moronic Evangeline Lillys of the world

Joe Jonas and pregnant wifey Sophie Turner go on a juice run in Los Feliz

It is my hope that most people have been self-isolating for anywhere between nine to fourteen days already. Judging from the nuttiness on social media, it shows. Normal people and celebrities are doing the most at home to amuse themselves, including showing their asses on social media. Vanessa Hudgens was one of the first ass-showers when she talked about the inevitability of death during an Instagram Live session, and something about how just because tons of people will die, doesn’t mean that Coachella should be cancelled. But the real ass-shower was Evangeline Lilly, who gave some sort of asinine Instagram commentary about how the coronavirus is “just the flu” and that quarantines infringe on her freedom or whatever.

So, Sophie Turner isn’t having any of it. She was playing around on Instagram Live and had some pointed shade for those people who are self-isolating:

“Stay inside. Don’t be f–king stupid. Even if you count your ‘freedom over [...] your health.’ I don’t give a f–k 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, it’s not big, and it’s not clever… And that’s the tea.”

I’m including the video below. Sophie is really funny here, but yeah. What else is there to say? The shade was well-deserved and I don’t even find it that “shady.” Sophie is just telling the truth. Stay home. Be smart. Don’t prioritize your own “freedom” above the good of the society. Don’t misinform people or minimize the crisis.

PS… The photos of Sophie and Joe in this post are from March 2 and March 4. They seem to have started self-isolating about a week later, because photos of them dried up around March 11th.

    I wish I could have been self isolating for the past two weeks. I get people are bored, but seeing it constantly vocalized is so frustrating for those of us petrified and being forced to work. My job is not even essential. I can’t even imagine how annoying it is for those that are on the frontlines. Stop vocalizing you’re privilege and just enjoy your health. Good god.

    • Kimberly says:

      did you see the videos of people from oregon flocking to the coast like they were at Florida spring break? insane and selfish

      • lucy2 says:

        I work in a summer resort area, and people have been coming here too. When they’re told they should stay at their primary residence because the shore towns do not have the infrastructure to handle summer crowds in March, most of them are like “I pay taxes, I’ll go where I want!” It’s infuriating.

      • LindaGiggles says:

        Are you in NJ lucy2? I saw the exact same comments on NJGov’s and Gov Murphy’s twitter and was totally disgusted. Shore hospitals are not set up to handle additional volume in the off season. Sickening.

      • Aims says:

        Kim…. My dad lives over there!! He said that the cities told the visitors they have 24 hours to leave. They don’t want the excessive people there. People are treating this as a holiday.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        That’s so true. The social distancing has been has been hard, but there are much bigger problems going on with this pandemic than that. It’s a sad time, and it’s a scary time.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      As someone who has family and friends going out to do jobs they cannot stay home from, I concur. It’s terrifying, knowing they have no choice but to be exposed daily. Take a look below at the list of essential businesses that are still operating in Nashville, as we begin our stay at home order today. So many people are working to keep us all going! Let’s give them the respect they deserve by showing some patience and following rules.

      -Federal and state offices and services, including post offices and airports
      -Essential government functions including law enforcement and transportation
      -Food and beverage, businesses that directly support the food supply
      -Health care
      -Sanitation and waste removal
      -Energy, water, and sewage
      -Pharmacies and medical supply
      -Vehicle fuel, support, service stations
      -Banks and other business that directly support the insurance and financial services sector
      -Legal and judicial services
      -Laundromats/laundry/cleaning services
      -Home and business repair, hardware supply
      -Warehousing and storage
      -Construction and facilities design businesses
      -Product logistics, transport, and distribution
      -Parcel transportation and delivery
      -Veterinary and pet supply
      -Home and business cleaning and maintenance services
      -All businesses which rely upon deliveries
      -Internet and telecommunications systems
      -Print, online and broadcast media

      • lizzieb says:

        Thank you for this. I have today off as it’s my birthday. Greatly appreciate the shout out. Passing it along as many of you are working either distantly or in person. Thanks to everyone for keeping our society going.

    • msd says:

      Sansa ftw! I know people are focused on the well-deserved shade towards other celebrities but Sophie’s siblings are doctors I believe. She knows that many people, especially medical staff, don’t have the luxury of staying home. It boggles the mind that so many people still don’t get this.

    • lemonylips says:

      For the first time ever I feel grateful in a way to be working from home. My flatmates are freaking out about their jobs though and that makes me feel horrible. Who knew that being a writer would bring steady jobs for a while now, but I still feel so bad and scared for people who have to go to jobs and keep us all running and those who are now left not working. At least we all laugh about how now they finally understand me saying that my life hasn’t changed much. But still. I really hope this will normalize as soon as possible and everyone will be able to work cause not having that is such a stress. I hope I don’t sound horrible, my heart goes to everyone who is in a bad position and I hope every day that I’ll be able to do my job cause I don’t know how I would cope without it.

    • Emilia says:

      You do realize that not everyone who is bored at home is privileged right? Some of us have nothing to do because we were laid off or furloughed.

      • Nikki* says:

        What is the difference between laid off and furloughed; I’m not familiar with “furloughed”. Best wishes to you; my son-in-law & my daughter’s MIL were both furloughed, and several close friends’ income has stopped entirely, overnight. Very tough on so many people!!

      • whatever says:

        If I understand correctly, laid off is permanent. You no longer have a job. Furloughed is when you are sent home without pay for an indefinite amount of time, but there is the expectation that at some point business as usual will resume and you will return to your position.

    • LA says:

      To be clear, no one is talking about people going to work. They’re talking about people going out unnecessarily. Everyone (with any common sense) understands that some people don’t have the choice and have to leave the house for work. The shade isn’t for that.

  2. lucy2 says:

    Good for her!
    When all this is over, we have to remember who helped, and who made it worse.

    • Snazzy says:

      yup, I am noting it with my friends too. Some people will be phased out due to their selfishness during this time

      • bobslaw says:

        100%. I told my husband the other day I’m keeping a list of all the ding dongs I have to ice when this is over.

      • Nikki* says:

        Bobslaws “icing the ding dongs” somehow makes me smile. :)

      • juliethirteen@yahoo.com says:

        Do you mean Hostess ding dongs? OMG how good does that sound frozen??

      • Kelly says:

        I work for a public university library and most people who can do something working from home got that arranged rather hastily last week. There’s still some people working in the libraries, doing essential services. There weren’t enough volunteers to work the two sections, so some people were strongly encouraged to volunteer. There’s more people coming in this week because either they can’t work from or don’t want to have to dip into their personal leave.

        I was one of 3 people in my work group to volunteer to come in and help staff those areas. I’m getting paid because I’m working from home, but I felt it was the right thing to do. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to do it all week and wanted to do something where I could interact with people from a safe distance. It was great interacting with people today and having something to do to take my mind off what is going on. My boss was very appreciative that at least one of her people stepped up.

        My colleague who only got approved for a certain number of work from home hours outright refused to volunteer for either area. Even in normal times, he’s not a great team player, so it shouldn’t have been a huge surprise. He’s claiming that he’s trying to focus on the social distancing because he doesn’t want to get his elderly father, who is in a nursing home and whom he sees maybe once a week, sick. Nursing homes are ground zero for COVID19, so his father is just as likely to get it from one of the staff whom he has daily contact with via their contacts as he is via his own family. He’s treating this as a vacation, which it isn’t, and time to focus on his side business. He’s also viewing this as a way to get his kids with him full time as his ex-wife works for a hospital and comes into contact with the general public on a daily basis. He’s said he’s worried that his kids and him by extension may get sick from it through her job.

        I hope that there are some changes made once things go back to normal. I hope that the higher ups remember who stepped up and went beyond what they had to do in order for essential services to get done. I’m hoping that my second vacation request for this fall gets approved because I stepped up to help out.

    I really am starting to love Sophie Turner! Good for her!

  4. Nicole says:

    The worst coronavirus post I have seen is Doutzen Kroes’ unbelievable Instagram video outright thanking the virus. It was an outrageous display of selfish blinders. She took it down fast though after being ripped to shreds.

    • Slowsnow says:

      Thanking the virus for what?!
      I can only imagine it to be because it highlights the climate change effects in Venice for instance. But even so, I would call it the only thing we can hold on to in the face of this disaster. People can’t go to their family’s funerals… it’s heartbreaking.

      • Alexandria says:

        Slowsnow yes! How heartbreaking is it for your loved ones not being able to have a funeral nor walk with their loved one for the last journey. I saw the prompt burial of a few Malaysian casualties and it was devastating.

      • Caitrin says:

        Even worse, the Venice pics and viral clips turned out to largely be a hoax.

    • Sitka says:

      I’m sorry – she did what????

  5. ElectricEELEEEEL says:

    I am a nurse. We will not have enough ventilators and manpower for people who need them. Please, please stay home. Everyone who is sick can infect up to 3 or 4 people at least. I get that it is difficult and stressful. Please stay home. You are literally saving lives and helping conserve the healthcare workforce.

    • Alexandria says:

      I watched this video recording of a nurse crying and pleading for her country mates to stay home. She was scared of the burn out for her colleagues and all frontliners. She also told the public to be honest in their declarations because some dishonest folks lied and compromised the medical staff, and one of them was pregnant. She highlighted everyone, even the hospital cleaner as being exhausted and trying their best to fight. The video is in her native language though. If you could understand it, it was super heartbreaking and I cried…you are our heroes.

    • Aims says:

      I know a nurse who worked through the Aids epidemic and helped many during that time and she said that this pandemic scares the shit out of her. And she is the most calm and rationale person I know. So that says something.

      • Turtledove says:

        Same here, Aims. A friend is an ICU Nurse in a major Boston Hospital. She is the most calm, and rational person I have ever met, just so, pragmatic, always. Calm. Kind. And she is really scared, and really angry with the lack of safety gear for staff in hospitals and the lack of compliance that people are demonstrating in our community. (People having little parties, play dates etc) Our governor has finally announced a “stay at home” mandate and is enforcing the closing of non-essential businesses. he had to. People were getting mani pedis, shopping in craft stores and playing basketball just this past weekend.

    • lemonylips says:

      thank you for being out there. i say this as a healthy person, and I can’t even stress how much I admire all of the medical staff. You are heroes and it will not be forgotten. Stay safe too. My friend, a surgeon, has to stay home in isolation because one of her colleagues went abroad, didn’t report it and has tested positive. Instead of being in panic all she fears is people not being taken care of. That is so admirable.

    • lizzieb says:

      So well said

  6. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    I kinda love her now.

  7. Bendix says:

    House Bendix knows no Queen except auf Queen in the North and her Name is Sophie Turner ( Mrs. Jonas if you’re nasty)

  8. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    So many stupid people. Thanks Sophie. On the other side of NOT staying inside, I just read a crazy post on mom.com I think it was about a mother who has been inside about a week and soooooooo depressed. She’s walking around crying. All day. She FaceTimes family and friends. She sits on the sofa with her son watching television overeating Oreos. She simply can’t go on. Ryfkm????? Watching telly with your spawn overeating is priceless and should be cherished. Being able to FaceTime is priceless and should be cherished. Having food, a roof overhead and your health is priceless and should be cherished. I simply can’t with some people.

    • HMC says:

      Social isolation has a cost. She could have an underlying mental health issue like depression that is being exacerbated. I’m lucky enough that I’m able to work remotely right now. But I live alone. My kid is in an RTF specializing in autism. I talk to him nightly and have Skyped with him, but I haven’t hugged him in a week. Everything is closed. Hanging out with friends is out. I’ve gone on drives when weather permits. I know I am lucky to be in a stable situation without having to risk my health with exposure to COVID19 but honestly? Some days I struggle. Social distancing, self isolation and quarantine…all this costs something that is harder to quantify.

    • Mle428 says:

      This sounds to me like she has underlying depression and anxiety, and shaming her for feeling depressed and anxious…during a time that is depressing and anxiety-inducing only perpetuates the stigma of mental illness. “Why can’t she just get over it?” Do you even see how ridiculous that is?

    • lucy2 says:

      This is all going to take a toll on everyone’s mental health, especially those with anxiety or depression already. Maybe this person is struggling with that, and writing it out helped?
      Or maybe they’re one of those people who needs the attention and makes everything all about themselves. When we don’t know, best to go with compassion.

      Perspective is a good thing to keep though – we all have to remind ourselves what we DO still have – a home, food, our families, friends, etc.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      I suffer from depression, anxiety and panic attacks, chronic migraines, etc. I understand having to visit a pharmacy every freaking month. I understand health. I understand happiness. I understand tragedy. I understand profound loss. I understand neglect. I understand assault. I understand abuse. And I understand I’ll always have to learn. Need to learn and overcome. Didn’t type the above thinking I’d have to spell shit out, but here we are.

      Unlike living through the great depression while living in the dust bowl, unlike living through WWIII, as so many of our grandparents and great-grandparents did, @Mle, eating Oreos while watching TV with your children and face-timing friends and family for a solid week is not, nor will ever be (IN MY OPINION), roughing it. I don’t know what world you live in, so don’t magically throw yourself in mine because that would be ridiculous.

      Healthy? Got a roof over your head? Got some food to eat? Able to reach out to family and friends? Wow, that’s so fvcking difficult to get through. Over here, we’re thankful for those things.

      • SomeChick says:

        I’d expect more compassion from a fellow sufferer of depression.

        I get that you *don’t want to hear about it.* So filter her.

        I’m in isolation and it IS depressing. Especially the longer it goes on. There is a reason solitary confinement is considered cruel.

        Glad to hear you’re happy with what you have! I’m happy to have those things (and cat food, and cats). But, they do not stop me from being depressed or anxious.

        Be real – if you could think or read or bathe your way out of depression, NO ONE would be depressed.

    • Gelya says:

      That is a depression and anxiety symptom. When you are anxious your body craves sugar. It’s a vicious cycle. She is probably really scared.

      My husband is considered essential. I am terrified. My anxiety and OCD are nuclear. Please stay home everyone. You are putting my Husband’s life at risk. You are putting a lot of loved one’s lives at risk.

      I know this is probably anxiety talking but when this is all over I would love these ass-showers to be charged with some kind of crime. I know probably unrealistic. We are at war and our essential workers are considered soldiers now. It is a crime to hurt soldiers.

    • Nikki* says:

      Pioneer women were isolated with their children in tiny sod huts for months of severe winter, often with an ever-present threat of Indian attack or starvation, and no social outlet whatsoever. Some did go mad; it was called “prairie fever”. In WW2, almost everyone worried about loved ones fighting halway across the world, while they themselves willingly put up with blackouts, severe rationing, little to no gasoline, and planting “victory gardens”. I want to have compassion for people suffering anxiety, but have we really become such a nation where everyone is so fragile emotionally that worrying while watching TV, or while reading and taking a hot bath, is inhumanly challenging?

      • Gah says:

        Nikki- there is no hierarchy of suffering. One woman’s bathrobe clad tears is another’s unimaginable physical assault. We do not get to determine the extent of impact different events have on individuals. There is no points system for what a human can handle.

        This thread makes me sad because it’s so contemptuous of others’ experiences. What we all need to try is to have empathy. Tho I am aware many humans are patently incapable of it.

    • Sarah says:

      We all experience reality differently. Unless they are endangering others with their behaviour, I do not begrudge anyone their feelings right now. Compassion for each other builds community resiliency.

      • HMC says:

        Sometimes it’s just the act of expressing how we feel that helps. Especially if we can express that we feel lonely or overwhelmed or are having some difficulty without being flooded and flamed with “the homeless have it worse!” Or “you have a roof and food, you have no right to feel anything other than happy you ungrateful wench!” (Verbatim criticism I got on Facebook, unfriended that person!)

        Sometimes it’s just the idea that causes discomfort. I’m a fairly introverted person. But there is a difference in how I process choosing to be alone or on the fringe of groups and being told now you have no choice. Is this the most horrible feeling in the world? No. Am I in danger of losing my house, starving, etc? No. But minimizing someone’s personal internal struggle because “others” have it worse just compound the problem and further isolated anyone trying to reach out however they can.

        Just saying.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        “Sometimes it’s just the act of expressing how we feel that helps.”

        I’ll buy that. It’s truth and pragmatism. And when we express how we feel openly and online we realize everyone reading can express how they’re feeling…openly. Now. Can we all just sing Kumbaya and laugh as we sit in isolation? Eating. Bathing. Playing games with our kids and pulling out hair out trying to keep the house clean?

  9. Sean says:

    Good for Sophie. Anyone else notice how pissed they look in the one photo with Sophie wearing a Giants sweatshirt? I would be too. I’d be fed up with the paparazzi constantly taking pictures when I’m just trying to go about my business.

  10. Jan says:

    My idiot sister is right up there with the other morons. Sends me a laughing emoji this morning , haha haha my Store is still open, going to work today!! She works at frigging JoAnn’s! Since when is a fabric store essential??? And is then planning to go see my daughter in law after work, who is PREGNANT. WTF?!?!?! Meanwhile I’m in the highest risk group and am sitting here wondering if i am going to die if I go to the grocery store.

    I want to see more of this. I want to see more celebs calling EACH OTHER out. Since they don’t want to listen to us plebes maybe being called out by their peers will have more of an impact.

    News from the Bay Area: The tiny beach town, Bolinas, in Marin just put up a sign that reads “ If you don’t live here, leave” as it as been inundated with local tourists. My family and I went on a drive yesterday to see life outside(we have been isolated for a week). Most of the streets in SF were empty or lightly populated but one street had groups of homeless hanging out and the worst was a farmers market with absolutely no one distancing themselves. Anyway kudos to Sophie and I think I may finally get around to watching game of thrones.

    • Hecate says:

      Ha! I grew up in San Rafael – that is very on brand for Bolinas. They used to steal their own city sign marker so tourists couldn’t find them.

      Thanks for this, it brought back some great weekend memories!

      • SomeChick says:

        Yeah I am sure they were stoked to be able to post that!

        <3 Bolinas. Long may they be grumpy and isolationist. They figured out long before most how to preserve what they have there.

      • outofthecloset says:

        That is indeed very Bolinas.

    Wouldn’t expect any less from Queen Sansa. And shout out to Mr. Sansa too! I like him. He might even be my favorite JB.

  16. Malificent says:

    My neighbors (late 50s and mid-60s with high blood pressure) just returned early from vacation in Mexico because “Mike Pompeo is making us leave.” They were warned by medical personnel when they off-boarded that they should assume they have COVID-19 and quarantine for 14 days. Their daughter lives in LA and left on a flight just before the Shelter in Place order took effect, so she’s also a possible separate infection vector in their household.

    And my neighbor is like “We’re disinfecting our whole house!” And, I couldn’t even reply to her text. Your house, which has been empty for two weeks, is not the problem. You and your family are the problem!

    We live in Colorado, where they are estimating that our surge of critical cases will begin in about a week. Sh*t is about to get real for my neighbors and a whole lot of other people.

    I have to go to work in completely non essential business (interior design) because stupid employers are greedy and stupid people customers treating the whole thing as good time to decorate their homes! Ffs! I hate people! I haven’t seen so much stupidity amd ignorance in my whole life. Praying for lockdown here in Ireland as using my annual leave and my anxiety skyrocketed

    • Still_Sarah says:

      I am fortunate in that I was working overseas teaching but didn’t get my contract renewed, so I flew home to Canada in February when there were only a handful of cases in the region and no return/ travel restrictions. And I have a side hustle teaching English online, so I am trying to focus on that to earn some money. The true irony in my situation? I am now applying for work in China as that is the only place bringing foreigners in. The Corona virus is tapering off and I am told from friends there things are sort of returning to normal. So yeah, I am hoping to go to China to find work and escape the Corona virus.
