In the video, X-Men: Dark Phoenix star Sophie Turner adopted an American accent to slam social media influencers for promoting products that could be harmful to followers, especially young women and people:
“Today I just wanted to promote this new powdered stuff that you put in your tea. And basically it makes you shit your brains out and is totally really, really bad for me to be promoting to young women and young people everywhere, but I don’t really give a fuck because I’m getting paid money for it.”
X-Men: Dark Phoenix star Sophie Turner concluded the video by making a hand gesture and saying, “Influencer life.”

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, and DVD.
