Sophie Turner Blasts Evangeline Lilly Over ‘Freedom’ Comment Amid COVID-19 | Sophie Turner And Evangeline Lilly:
Sophie Turner, 24, and her husband Joe Jonas recently hosted an Instagram live to make it clear they don’t believe people should be messing around with the disease.
During the course of the captured live, Sophie Turner delivered the damning critique on Evangeline Lilly’s statement in reference to her ‘freedom’.
Earlier this week, Evangeline Lilly, caused controversy by saying that she was practising “business as usual” by taking her kids to a gymnastics camp.
Evangeline Lilly stated that she had ‘just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing. #businessasusual’
Evangeline Lilly came under heavy criticism given health officials believe social distancing will help reduce the spread of Covid-19 and ease pressure on health services — ultimately saving more lives.

Evangeline Lilly explained the reason behind her decision, to not abide by the government’s advice and maintain social distance, after a fan who called her decision irresponsible. “Some people value their lives over their freedom, some people value freedom over their lives.”
Appearing on Instagram Live alongside her husband, Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner joined the chat when she put Evangeline on blast for that decision.
Sophie Turner said – she was, naturally, holding a cup of tea at the time – “Stay inside. Don’t be f***ing stupid, even if you count your freedom over… your health. I don’t give a f***ing 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.”
Sophie Turner did not specifically call out fellow actress Evangeline Lilly, who is best known for starring in Lost and the Ant-Man superhero films.
