Maisie Williams is pretty much the best on social media. Her Twitter refresh sound impression is on point, her reaction to the Red Wedding was timeless and her hilarious escapades with Game of Thrones co-star Sophie Turner are enough to give any fan FOMO. Also this:

To top it off, the real life Arya Stark is just as fierce and outspoken as her fictional alter ego. Yesterday, when British website the Daily Mail made a cheap headline out of Maisie’s attendance of the NSPCC Summer Masquerade Ball, a charity event for a British nonprofit organization that combats child abuse, the nineteen-year-old was quick to voice her displeasure.

The title centered on Maisie’s glamorous ensemble, a white, ruffled lace maxi dress with a crew neckline. “Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams goes braless in sheer lace dress and quirky headpiece at charity masquerade,” read the click-baity banner. While we’re not used to seeing Maisie in such feminine attire, the outfit could hardly be considered “daring” or revealing, as stated in the article’s description.

Not one to sit back and be objectified, Williams took to Twitter to provide the publication with a more apt lead. “Game of Thrones actor, Maisie Williams, helps raise thousands at a Summer Masquerade Ball for @NSPCC,” she typed, along with a frog emoji followed by a teacup emoji, the now universal signs for “but that’s none of my business.”

Thankfully, in the Internet world, unlike the Seven Kingdoms, the rewards for spunk are likes, retweets and written praise, not the beheading of a dire wolf, temporary blindness and (Spoiler Alert) potentially fatal stab wounds.
