Lena Headey's Response To Louis C.K.'s Apology Has Fans Applauding Their 'Game of Thrones' Queen
Game of Thrones' Lena Headey couldn't help but take a page from Queen Cersei's playbook this week. Lena Headey's response to Louis C.K.'s apology on Twitter had some fans calling Headey to claim her rightful place on the Iron Throne in real life. Louis C.K. issued the statement and apology on Nov. 10 after allegations of sexual misconduct emerged against him in a report a New York Times report on Nov. 9. He confirmed that the stories reported by the NYT were true and that he acted "irresponsibly" because he took advantage of the fact that the women "admired" him. He wrote in the statement,
These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d*ck without asking first, which is also true.
Headey wasn't having any of what he was selling in the statement. She tweeted, "Louis CK. The words you wrote are a sh*tshow of narcissistic c*ck soup." She really went in on his apology with an incredible put-down that can rival even Cersei Lannister's most vicious insults.
When someone responded to the actress' tweet asking what C.K. should have done better, she didn't hesitate to tell the Twitter just how insufficient she thought the comedian's apology was. She tweeted, "He didn't apologize. FULL STOP. He wrote some stuff that he thought would make people still think he's funny. He ain't." Headey seems like she isn't afraid to speak her mind and call out something that more than one person might be thinking.
Many were in support of the actress, who on Oct. 17 bravely discussed her own experience with sexual harassment when she talked about an alleged encounter with Harvey Weinstein on Twitter.
Her statement about C.K.'s apology drew GoT fans to praise their on-screen Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. They took to Twitter to let Headey know that they whole-heartedly agreed with her.
