Sophie Perry responds to haters

In her latest Instagram post, Luke Perry’s daughter finally broke her silence and responded to all haters, saying she “didn’t ask for this attention.”

Her post stated:

YES I am hurt and sad and crying and beside myself with what happened to my dad.

Sophie added she is not going to sit and cry all days long in her room because her dad wouldn’t want her to.

We still can’t figure it out how some people can be so cruel. The poor girl has just lost her beloved father, and instead of expressing their support, they criticize her, saying how exactly she should be grieving.
