PIC: Maisie Williams was not happy with this headline about her in the Daily Mail

Conor Heneghan

She has a point.

Maisie Williams, the actress who plays Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, attended a summer masquerade ball in aid of children’s charity NSPCC on Friday night.

Her appearance at the event was covered by MailOnline on Sunday, but Williams took exception with the headline they used, which focussed on the outfit she wore to the ball.

We can’t really blame her either.

Williams’ tweet was retweeted over 2,000 times in less than an hour after she posted it on Monday, with most people taking exception to the rather unnecessary use of ‘braless’ in the headline.

The Game of Thrones star’s public calling out of the Daily Mail comes shortly after Gary Lineker did likewise for what he labelled an “outrageously misleading” headline about his recent divorce.
