Sophie Turner Targets At Joe Jonas’ ‘Purity Ring’ On ‘Jonas Brothers Family Roast’:
Sophie Turner mocked Joe Jonas in Netflix’s “Jonas Brothers Family Roast” for wearing purity rings while “sticking his fingers in costars.”
The “Game of Thrones” star appeared in the comedy special, which was released on the streamer on Monday, to roast her husband and her brothers-in-law. During her set, she joked about the purity ring that the Jonas Brothers wore early in their career as a symbol of abstaining from sex before marriage. They removed those purity rings long before any of the band members got married.
During her roast, Turner said of the purity rings: “Like, I know this is a roast, and you all think I should be going after them, but I think we need to set the record straight here. No, the rings weren’t a good idea. Yes, as a gesture they’re laughably, toe-curlingly lame. But remember: This was about more than a gesture.
“This was about faith. This was about principle. This was about taking a stand and setting an example. Look, Joe Jonas wasn’t just sticking his fingers in some dumb metal rings. He was sticking his fingers in costars, actresses, and even a supermodel or two.”

She continued: “To be honest, Joe and the purity-ring thing is kind of like a modern-day Cinderella. Joe tried to find a match for his purity rings a few times, but finally, the finger fit me. It was also like Cinderella because most of the girls he tried it with were under contract to Disney.”
At the end of her roast, Turner said to her husband: “Don’t wait up. Pete Davidson slipped me his phone number.”
During an appearance on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” in 2019, the Jonas Brothers explained that they began wearing the purity rings when they were 12 because they grew up in a church and their dad was a pastor. They also said that they didn’t want to talk about the purity rings until a reporter told them he was going to say they were part of a cult.
“The next thing you know, it was ‘the Jonas Brothers and their purity rings,'” Joe said. “We decided at one point, ‘Look, this is not who we are. We don’t need to be wearing this anymore. This is annoying. People are making fun of it anyway. We can make fun of it ourselves.'”
Earlier in the special, Jack Whitehall also made reference to the Jonas Brothers’ “purity pledge” during his roast, saying that he was able to stay a virgin because he was a Jonas Brothers fan.
“Seriously, the more I told people that I listen to your music, the less they wanted to have sex with me,” he said.
The Netflix comedy special also starred John Legend, Dr. Phil, Kenan Thompson, Lilly Singh, and the wives of Nick and Kevin Jonas: respectively, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Danielle Jonas.
Chopra Jonas said during her roast that she “wouldn’t want to be married to anyone else” unless Chris Hemsworth “suddenly became single.”
