Game of Thrones actress Kekilli blocks Instagram profile to Turkish users after ‘sexual harassments’

Renowned Turkish actress Sibel Kekilli, who had also starred on popular series Game of Thrones, has prevented her Instagram account to be seen by social media users in Turkey following “threats and messages containing sexual harassment” coming from the country.

Kekilli had signaled that she would eventually suspend her Instagram account after writing “It is time to bid farewell for a short time.”

As of Sept. 13, Instagram users from Turkey were not able to reach Kekilli’s profile.

“Restricted profile. This profile isn’t available in your region,” a message on her account says.

The actress had previously voiced her disturbance over the harassment she received through messages from Turkish users.

“I will not further tolerate your threats, abuses and disgusting sexually explicit messages. You are bigoted, hypocrites and full of hate. I feel sorry for you. Keep out and please stop following my account,” Kekilli had stated.
