Eternally loud-mouthed presenter Piers Morgan has embroiled himself in another social media spat, this time with "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner over an article that he shared about celebrities sharing mental health issues.

"Or maybe they have a platform to speak out about it and help get rid of the stigma of mental illness which affects 1 in 4 people in United Kingdom per year", she tweeted at The Sun's post.

According to the World Health Organization, 25% of the world's population will suffer from a mental illness at some point in their lives, but almost two-thirds of people with a mental illness won't seek help.

Callard has spoken candidly about her depression in the past and in the interview makes the argument that some celebrities might just be talking about mental illness because it's trendy, not because it is something they actually experience. "But please go ahead and shun them back into silence".

Taylor's tweet included a screenshot of a direct message conversation, in which Taylor replied to a fan, "I know, I don't care". She recently told Entertainment Weekly she hopes the series will help people forget about her troubled past. "She looks great.

Callard, who plays Liz McDonald in Corrie, said there was a danger it could become "fashionable" to talk about mental health.

Twitter was soon divided between those backing Morgan's position that some claim to suffer mental illness as a form of attention-seeking, while others were outraged he could be so dismissive of suffering and add to the stigma.

But her comments weren't taken well by others in the entertainment industry.

We're positive you-and all celebrities who speak candidly and openly about their struggles with mental health-are making a difference.
