Sophie Turner Slams ‘Avengers’ Star Evangeline Lilly’s Coronavirus Stance

Sophie Turner slammed Avengers star Evangeline Lilly over her controversial coronavirus stance during a recent Instagram Live video.

The coronavirus outbreak is causing people all around the world to self-quarantine in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus and not overwhelm hospitals. Last week, Avengers star Evangeline Lilly revealed on social media that she isn’t doing any self-quarantining.

Many people online lashed out against Avengers star Evangeline Lilly for her controversial stance on the coronavirus outbreak. Dark Phoenix star Sophie Turner is now the latest to do so. Sophie Turner and her husband Joe Jonas are currently self-quarantining in New York City. On a recent Instagram Live video, Sophie Turner called out Evangeline Lilly without outright naming her by saying the following:

“Stay inside. Don’t be f–king stupid. Even if you count your – ” [does air quotes] ‘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.”

Here is the official synopsis for Sophie Turner’s Dark Phoenix:

This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.

Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.

Dark Phoenix is now available on Digital HD, 4k Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and HBO.
