'Stranger Things' Barb defends Finn Wolfhard with a few, very real tweets

Just because Wolfhard is an actor, it doesn't mean that he's required to greet every fan - especially since he's a minor, and needs breaks just like everyone else.

Cast member Sophie Turner poses at a premiere for season 7 of the television series "Game of Thrones" in Los Angeles, California, U.S., July 12, 2017.

"They give you their art".

"Damn... seeing fully grown adults wait outside the "Stranger Things" kids' hotels etc, and then abuse them when they don't stop for them..." the Game of Thrones star, 21, wrote on Tuesday, November 7. Turner bashed photo-obsessed fans who were upset that 14-year-old Finn Wolfhard, aka Mike Wheeler from Stranger Things, didn't take pictures with them when leaving his hotel a few days ago.

Her comments were quickly criticised by fans who labelled them "inappropriate" and "tasteless".

Black Friday is still two weeks away, but some stores are already releasing details about the big deals they'll be offering. Remember that many of these items are sold as doorbusters, so be vigilant and prepare for a long, long Thanksgiving Day.

She recapped the first season of the hit Netflix show. That fame and popularity has come with a price though because some people think they're entitled to getting attention from the cast of the show even though they're just kids themselves.

Noah Schnapp, who plays Wolfhard's onscreen buddy Will Byers (and his real-life friend), also chimed in.

She left off with a warning: "So, from one big sister to the world, don't you DARE make young actors feel guilty or indebted to you because they couldn't say hi".

"Imagine you, a parent, walking with your 13 year old son/daughter and seeing a fully grown adult pointing their camera phone at your kid", wrote Turner. You would do anything you could to delete that person's photograph, and remove your child from that situation as soon as you could. Doesn't that go against everything we teach our children anyway?

Sophie Turner's response comes on the heels of a video posted to social media - which has since been made private - that shows a group of fans waiting outside Finn's hotel on two separate occasions. "Pshhhh. Some people man".
