Game Of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has been forced to deny using a racial slur in a recent work out video posted on Instagram.

The video was quickly deleted from Fallis' Instagram story but was copied and widely shared on social media, forcing Turner to issue a strong denial in a statement to E! News:
"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. 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."
So, which phrase was Sophie really using?
Well, upon watching the video, although the audio is slightly muffled, it definitely sounds like 'motherf**kers' to us. But what do you think?
