Turner’s candid explanation garnered plenty of support from other social media users who, literally, felt her pain. “@SophieT crying in NYC because of cramps is one of the most relatable things I've seen on the internet,” one user wrote.
Unfortunately not everyone on the internet (i.e. the trolls) believed that Turner would have seriously been crying like that in public over her period. “Are you telling you that you start crying till your face is burnin’ red bc you have ur period? Even when you know paparazzis are behind you? Next joke please,” one user tweeted.
Turner’s response? A simple: “Girl…. you’ve never had cramps?” Um, clearly that person hasn’t, because period tears are definitely a thing, especially during those first couple of days when it feels like your insides are being torn apart.
Skeptics aside, kudos to Turner for getting real about her period and the pain that comes with it. It’s a nice reminder that celebs are just like us and crave comfy beds, heating pads, and ibuprofen every now and again too.
