Finn Wolfhard has been making headlines for some upsetting reasons lately, all beyond his control.
Firstly, with the a large majority of older women sexualising him (like model Ali Michael who received a helluva lot of backlash for it), and now, for being 'rude' to his fans when he didn't sign his autograph for them.
A video surfaced yesterday from fans waiting outside his hotel (ALL DAY) asking for some of his time. When Finn ignored them, they posted it online with the caption, "Imagine being 14 and heartless that you can't even stop for your fans who made you famous in the first place! WOW."
However fellow actors are now coming to his defence, like Shannon Purser and now, Sophie Turner.
"Damn... seeing fully grown adults wait outside the ‘Stranger Things’ kids’ hotels etc , and then abuse them when they don’t stop for them is super weird A. What adult in their right mind waits for a CHILD outside their hotel and B is then is offended when the CHILD doesn’t stop," she began.
"It doesn’t matter if they are an actor... they are kids first. Give them the space they need in order to grow without feeling like they owe anyone anything for living their childhood dreams.
"It doesn’t matter if that child happens to be an actor and consented to a professional film crew capturing their moves when in character.. That does NOT mean that this child consented to being followed around with a camera in their face. I don’t care if it 'Comes with the job'. It doesn’t."
"And how dare you shun and demean that child when they don't pose for an adult strangers photograph or walk over and talk to them when they take that NOT CONSENTED FOR photo. Doesn't that go against everything we teach our children anyway? Pshhhh. Some people man."
Sophie was only 15 herself when she was shot into the limelight from her Game Of Thrones success, and with Finn only being 14, it's safe to say that she knows what she's talking about.
