“Stay inside, don’t be f—ing stupid, even if you count your freedom over — I don’t know, what is it — your health,” she said during an Instagram Live video on Friday.

Sophie Turner is not happy with people that refuse to social distance. One such person is Evangeline Lilly, who dropped her children off at camp and captioned the photo with some facts; like her children had washed their hands before going in, and that they're having fun. She included the hashtag "business as usual".

“I don’t give a F 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 and it’s not big and it’s not clever. And that’s the tea,” Turner replied.

Lilly, in the comments of her Instagram post: “Some people value their lives over freedom, some people value freedom over their lives. We all make our choices. Where we are right now feels a lot too close to Marshall Law for my comfort already, all in the name of a respiratory flu.”

Fans quickled responded, other celebrities as well:

Lesley Ann Brandt said: "So incredibly selfish and irresponsible."

Maggie Grace said: "Hey there, I read your pre-edit post and I find it concerning . There’s no need to panic, but at the same time this is about all of us- the vulnerable , the immunocompromised, older folks. Sure, it’s a free country, but how about choosing to exercise some of that wonderful freedom to have some compassion, trust the extensive science here and not overwhelm health system . No doctor should have to choose which patients get life saving care and which patients get sent home to die- the sort of triage that is tragically happening in Italy right now. Please out Johns Hopkins, Stat News, think about how these small decisions effect your dad and those in your community as ventilators run out- and as you use your influence on such a large group of other people . I say this with all humility , please rethink this. Your kids will be just fine without going to gymnastics, I promise . :) Be well. PS Daniel said he is doing a lot better btw . I don’t know, Maybe you guys wanna chat?"

So many celebrities called Lilly out, one even said: "As a celebrity who is able to warn people about what's going on in the world, you chose to spit on the corpses of covid victims, their relatives and all the medical staff trying to save them. How disappointing. People are actually DYING from what you call a flu. Be smart, everyone would prefer to be free, but how can you be when you're dead ? Pay respect to all the victims and stay home omfg"

"Whilst yes, you may value your freedom over your life and that is your own choice, unfortunately you also are saying you value your temporary freedoms over someone else's life. Your choice affects them too. I do not know you and I do not wish you harm, but please self isolate and consider how our actions affect the vulnerable right now." said Georgia Rose Hardy on the post in question.

COVID-19 is a respitory illness, but there is currently no vaccine, the illness is brand new which means humans have no resistence to it, and it puts the worlds people at risk. Young, healthy, old, sick, everyone's equally at risk. While the mortality rate is higher in certain groups, that does not make those groups ... expendable so somebody can have "freedom".
