Sydney Sweeney has called trolls who send nude photos of her to her family “disgusting”.
Interviewed byGQ, the Euphoriastar explained that malicious people on the Internet captured her nude scenes and tagged her family. In the series, her character Cassie faces nude videos of her broadcast to students at her school.
“It got to the point where they were tagging my family. My cousins don’t need that,” she said. This is completely disgusting and unfair. You have a character who went under the microscope for being a sexualized person at school, and then the audience does the same thing.”
The actress added that if the trolls intended to shame her, they failed.
“I think it’s ridiculous. I’m an artist, I play characters,” she said. It makes me want to play characters that people off more.”
In her interview, Sydney Sweeney also responded to criticism she received after photos of her mother’s 60th birthday party posted on Instagram showed guests wearing merchandise of former U.S. President Donald Trump.
“Honestly, I feel like nothing I say can move the debate forward,” she said. It turned into a forest fire and nothing I can say will get him back on track.”
