Sophie Turner Dislikes Subway Weight Loss Shots

Sophie Turner opposes NYC subway ads for medicinal weight loss injections. Do New Yorkers need to see diet culture's extremes on their commutes after years of combating unrealistic body standards in advertising and other media?

Sophie Vershbow tweeted, “The ozempic advertising plastered above the Times Square metro station can fuck all the way off,” attaching two Graphic ads that offer “a weekly shot to reduce weight.”

In case you missed it, injectable semaglutide (Ozempic and Wegovy) is the newest diet trend (both are from developer Novo Nordisk; Ozempic is FDA-approved for treatment of type 2 diabetes, while Wegovy is FDA-approved for weight loss).

The injections, originally created for diabetics, help you feel satisfied sooner, resulting in less eating and weight reduction. Trendy advertising are making this drug appear like a no-brainer, which stinks.

Ozempic is a "diet trend" in mainstream media. GLP-1 injections reduce insulin resistance, diabetes, prediabetes, PCOS, and other disorders. Doctors explain their uses, side effects, and more.

Diet culture hurts Sophie Turner. The Dark Phoenix actress has a live-in caregiver to help her manage her eating condition. 

 In May, she said, “For a long period, I was pretty unwell with an eating issue and I had a friend.... A live-in therapist would monitor my diet. I kept replaying an Instagram remark one night. 

"I'm so obese, I'm so unwanted," I thought, spinning out. "You know, no one genuinely cares," my buddy observed. You're alone in thinking this. You're unimportant. It was the finest advice.”
