"Game of Thrones" and "X-Men" star Sophie Turner is defending herself from accusations that she used the n-word in a recent Instagram video with Joe Jonas.

The video was deleted, but of course saved by the Internet, after being posted by DJ/fitness guru Brendan Fallis. "Look who came today," Fallis says, with Jonas seen behind him, and they pan the camera to Turner, who says --- well, that's the debate.

Some viewers heard the n-word, and they're now attacking Turner online. But the actress issued a statement to Page Six to clarify that she may have used some crude slang, but definitely not a racist slur:

"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."

Baller Alert has the original video, but others also posted slowed-down versions where it does make it more clear that it's motherf*ckers.
