Headlines in the international press about Game Of Thrones actress Rose Leslie have triggered social media, which has rushed to protect Rose for attending a concert without her spouse Kit Harrington who is presently in rehab. The indirect criticism has enraged Twitter, with a number of tweets shaming the publications and asking why the actress should lock up herself to her home.
Some tweets also mentioned that family and friends of those looking for aid with mental health also have the right to survive as they choose best. It has to be said that the media weren’t the only offenders. Numerous Kit Harrington fans and Jonerys shippers seized the chance to integrate comparisons between Rose Leslie and actress Emilia Clarke, who starred as Daenerys on Game Of Thrones.
When your husband is in rehab but you are at music festival but talking about your husband’s problems 🤦♀️ Rose is pathetic and clown. pic.twitter.com/zi0BYcTqhO

Kit Harrington has been in a wellness center for more than a month now, it was disclosed last week. The 32-year-old actor checked himself in for treatment linked to stress and alcohol issues. Kit reportedly experienced difficulty managing the end of Game Of Thrones and has earlier said he looked for therapy after struggling with his character Jon Snow’s story arc a couple of seasons ago.

What an awful headline shaming Rose Leslie for having some time for herself. Has none of you been through something similar? Terrible idea!

Shame on @MetroUK for this headline. Of course Rose Leslie should be enjoying herself! Do you know what mental illness does to partners/parents/children/friends? Tell me, what should she be doing instead? https://t.co/bo1FFWHIgd

No dog in the fight, but I think it’s wack people are shitting on Rose Leslie for living her life while her husband seeks help. Not like she can be there with him, and people who love people getting help have every right to struggle and deal with said struggle however they please

Anyone who doesn't see anything wrong in this headline is a fool. Why not "Rose Leslie spotted at festival" full stop!

Rose Leslie played the wildling warrior Ygritte on Game Of Thrones – her character, the love interest of Jon Snow, died in Season 4.
While Ygritte and Jon didn’t get a happy ending – convoluted by Jon Snow’s subsequent romance with his aunt Daenerys which also ended in disaster – Rose Leslie and Kit Harrington did. They married in 2018, in a ceremony to which numerous Game Of Thrones co-stars were invited.
The music festival that Rose Leslie attended was held in London. The actress watched Bon Iver perform. She was with friends, including actress Carey Mulligan whose spouse Marcus Mumford was among the headliners at the festival with his band Mumford And Sons.
