Sophie Turner took to Instagram to slam the paparazzi for taking pictures of her daughter, Willa, without permission. While she and husband Joe Jonas have mainly kept private, all bets were off when it came to the starlet's motherly instincts.

Let's just say: You don't want to mess with this Momma Bear. The former Game of Thrones actress vented on a since-deleted Instagram Story. But don't worry, we've got the tea. It all started when pictures surfaced of the 10-month-old Hollywood baby, Willa. The snaps were shot by the paparazzi and shared around the world. Sophie told fans that she was "sickened" and "disgusted" by the lack of privacy. The way Mrs. Jonas saw it, Willa "is [her] daughter. She did not ask for this life, to be photographed..."

This message came as a huge shock for followers, who have come to expect little from the new parents when it came to personal deets. They like to keep things in the family, and we can't blame them after this latest invasion of privacy. Sophie was so committed to protecting her baby that she hadn't even shared a pic with followers. But that's no accident: "The reason that I am not posting pictures of my daughter and making sure that we can avoid paparazzi at all costs is because I explicitly do not want those photos out there," the 25-year-old shared.

But what really threw the Dark Pheonix star over the edge? The worldwide publishing of the pictures: "I'm respectfully asking everyone to stop following us around and stop trying to take pictures of our daughter," Sophie said. "Especially printing them." Willa's mother didn't hide her disgust when it came to the paps, revealing, "It's f--king creepy that grown old men [take] pictures of a baby without their permission."

While the original was removed, Sophie left us with a treat: a blurred-out shot of the middle finger. We can only guess that it was a little message for all the paparazzi out there. Safe to say, the battle is far from over for these protective parents. But hey, what's a creepy dude with a camera when you've dealt with Littlefinger, right?
