Sophia Bush shall not be messed with.
The 35-year-old actress took to Twitter today, posting a lengthy message in response to those attacking her former co-star, Hilarie Burton, for stating that she will not be attending an upcoming annual One Tree Hill EyeCon convention.
“I’m sorry Mary. I will not be attending any EyeCon events. Ever,” Burton wrote to a fan. “I personally feel exploited by their ‘girl power’ angle, which exists at the expense of some of us who went through a difficult time on that show. They’re using our sisterhood as a sales gimmick. No thanks.”
Following her tweet, multiple members from EyeCon responded to the star on Twitter, which the organization then re-tweeted from their official account.
“@HilarieBurton ‘Girl Power Angle’ WOW I’m part of the Eyecon company made up of mostly women and I’m on that ME TOO list! You know nothing about US or the women who help me get out of bed ever day so I can find myself again,” one member wrote.
“‘Girl Power’ isn’t an angle, it’s a way of life. I am proud to work for a company that is made up of mostly women. I am proud to be part of a company that puts smiles on people’s faces. I am proud to be part of @EyeCon3000,” another said.
