Sophie Turner has denied using the N-word after an inaudible video featuring the Game of Thrones actor circulated online.

Joe Jonas appeared in the clip which was posted online, featuring Turner in the gym. The man holding the camera, standing with Jonas, tells the camera “look who came today” while panning around to the actor, who says “what’s up”, followed by the unintelligible word.

In a statement to The Wrap, Turner said: “I used the word ‘motherf**kers’ in a recent video posted in an Instagram story and not a hateful racial slur that has been suggested.”

She continued: “I am incredibly upset that anyone would think otherwise, and I want to make it clear that I would never use such an abhorrent word.” Watch the clip below.
