Sophie Turner is being accused of using the N-word in a video circulating on social media, but it sounds to Gossip Cop like she’s actually saying something else. If so inclined, watch the video below.

In the footage, the actress appears to be at a gym, said to be in New York with boyfriend Joe Jonas and their pal Brendan Fallis. In the clip, Fallis is filming himself and Jonas as he says, “Look who came today!” He then turns the camera on Turner, and it sounds to some like she says, “What’s up my n*gga?!” Fallis is then heard laughing. He reportedly posted the video as an Instagram story, but later deleted it. Others have suggested, though, and Gossip Cop agrees, that Turner did not actually use the N-word, but actually said the expletive, “motherf*cka.”

Gossip Cop has reached out to Turner’s rep for comment. The 21-year-old English star is best known for playing Sansa Stark on “Game of Thrones,” a role she’s held since 2011. She also appeared as Jean Grey in last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse. Last month, Turner was linked to the nude photo hacking affecting celebrities when a stolen, but non-nude, photo of her was posted online.

Turner is certainly not the first star to get caught up in a celebrity N-word scandal. In 2015, Hulk Hogan was infamously fired from the WWE after it emerged he went on a racist rant. Other celebs ripped for using the word range from Justin Bieber and Lindsay Lohan to Paula Deen and Mel Gibson. Gossip Cop will update should Turner comment.

UPDATE: Turner says in a statement furnished to Gossip Cop, “I used the word ‘motherf*ckers’ 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.” As such, our meter has been changed from 2 to 0.
