Maisie Williams Tweets the Perfect Response to Headline About Her Outfit

Actress Maisie Williams, 19, perhaps best known for her role as Arya Stark on "Game of Thrones," had the perfect response to an article written about her by The Daily Mail.

The Mail article headline proclaimed "Unveiled: Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams goes braless in sheer lace dress and quirky headpiece at charity masquerade ball," to which Williams tweeted an edit of her own:

Mashable reports that this tweet was shared "more than a thousand times in less than 20 minutes," proof that many are in favor of her take on the story.

It isn't likely that The Daily Mail made a purposeful decision to undercut Williams' charity work by talking about her breasts, but that's exactly what they did. By reducing her to nothing more than a "braless" and "quirky" presence, they minimized her real reason for participating in the event, which was to raise money for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

It is highly unlikely that a male actor from "Game of Thrones" at the same event would be subjected to the same treatment.
