Sophia Bush wants her fans to know there is a fine line between admiration and stalking.
The “One Tree Hill” and “Chicago P.D.” star went off on people who harass her friends, agents and co-workers in an attempt to track Bush down.
“Don’t call them hunting me down. Especially not at 11pm on a Saturday night. It’s f**king rude. Period,” she tweeted on Saturday. “Getting my — or a number you think is mine — phone number isn’t how we become friends. Back off.”
“What happens when my privacy or the privacy of the people closest to me is violated?” she asked. “I start having an anxiety attack. I don’t feel safe going outside. Does that sound fun to you? It sure as hell isn’t fun to me. Every noise in the house gets scary. Every random number on my phone feels like a threat. I literally don’t give a shit what someone ‘wants.’ I don’t belong to them.”
Bush’s “One Tree Hill” co-star Hilarie Burton offered her support to Bush: “You don’t ‘hunt’ someone you admire. That’s psycho.”
