Ohhhhhh dear...

Sophie Turner, Bae of Westeros, Bae in the North and Bae of the Seven Kingdoms, has just found herself in a spot of bother after posting a joke on her Instagram about sexual orientation that a few fans seem to have found pretty insensitive. 

The Game Of Thrones actress posted a stock image of a woman with a massive silver pot on her head accompanied by a delightfully punny comment. The comment read: "I've been having PANsexual thoughts recently... also I'm a POThead #confessiontime"

If you're unsure about what pansexual means, it's when you're sexually or emotionally attracted to others regardless of their sexual orientation, biological gender or gender identification. 

People were quick to send their support to Sophie after believing that this was her coming out post.

With people catching the wrong end of the stick, Sophie then responded with an apology, stating that her original Instagram post was "merely a pun." 

And now she's being PUN-ISHED (...sorry) by Twitter for being insensitive about the importance and magnitude of coming out for others. 

Others are suggesting that everyone needs to calm down about the whole thing.

It's never cool to fake or pretend coming out on social media for attention *cough* Tyler Posey *cough* but maybe Sophie should have thought twice about this one.
