Maisie Williams' Powerful Response To A Daily Mail Headline About Her "Braless" Appearance

A girl has no name? Fine. A girl has no bra? Let's all make a huge freaking deal about it to sell papers.

British tabloid the Daily Mail ran a story yesterday about Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams' appearance at a charity masquerade ball over the weekend. In true Daily Mail style, the report focused on the important issues — namely, the fact that Williams didn't seem to be wearing a bra underneath her Self-Portrait dress.

"In a daring move, the English actress appeared to go braless under the ensemble, flashing her bare legs in the transparent dress," the paper reported in an article focused on the star's outfit, which, incidentally, has panels that prevent it from being totally sheer.

Williams proved she's got some of Arya Stark's badassery by responding to the article's headline on Twitter. Here's the genius alternative suggestion she posted.
So far her response has fetched more than 9,000 retweets. Comments underneath the original article also take the paper to task.

"This is disgusting and outrageous," one reader commented. "She attended a charity event to raise money and all you can comment on is the fact that she didn't wear a bra. So what? It's a free country. Disgusting."
