HBO Modifies Bush's Head On Game Of Thrones

Game of thrones modifies bushs head

After causing an unnecessary controversy, HBO has corrected Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' mistake of putting George W. Bush's head on a spike in episode ten of season 1.

On top of pulling the episode from iTunes and stopping shipments of the first season's DVD, the network pulled the episode from HBO GO in response to the criticism. Now, however, the episode is back online because editors managed to blur the face of the head so it is no longer recognizable as the nation's 43rd president.

This whole fiasco seemed like a ginormous overreaction to us, but the scandal is over so everyone can relax.

George W's cameo has been cut and his credit has been removed from IMDb fans can once again enjoy the first season's finale without being considered a terrorist.

    So…. I though the US had freedom of speech, what happen to that? who cares is the face of the worst president of the states was in that scene, did they mention it was him? did they say its was him during the scene? Bush keeps waisting our taxing with his bullshit!

    Oh no, you're right, because if it was Obama's head everyone would totally be acting rationally, not screaming something about racism. There's no real "freedom of speech" issue here, please learn what that means. They weren't trying to make a political statement, if they were they never would have brought it up on DVD commentary, they would have kept it to themselves as a big 'fuck you'. And if you think Bush was the worst president of all time, I suggest you start reading up on our nation's history.

    "This whole fiasco seemed like a ginormous overreaction to us." You wouldn't be saying that if it were Obama's head instead of Bush's. You would be screaming, "racist" at the top of your lungs. You're a real piece of work.

    I'm glad that HBO corrected this rude, childish insult to ANYONE who holds or has held the office of POTUS. Allowing behavior like this promotes divisiveness and insensitivity. Where is the tolerance Benioff/Weiss are supposed to practice if they are true liberals? Seems like they are silly H8'rs. Way to alienate 1/2 of your audience, morons.

    I am floored! If it was Obama's head on a post would you call it overreacting? You are unbelieveable! Try not to be so one sided all the time…you will really lose readers that way.

    What's truly upsetting is that there are people who don't think what Game of Thrones did was disrespectful. Pretty scary where our country is headed if we think this was an appropriate action and forum to convey a political sentiment that…believe it or not…..not all Americans agree with. It was classless. Good for HBO for showing some integrity.

    I don't think anyone would be screaming racist. Probably because Obama has a sense of humor. If they were I'd think they were stupid too. No one even noticed this until the producers mentioned it. I watch the show and frankly the last thing I'm looking at when watching the show is what the heads on the stakes look like.

    It always amazes me what people get up in arms about when we have real actual problems in this country. Just another way for the Republicans to deflect the public attention to something that is not even a worthy of a blip on the radar of what is going on in politics.

    Shame on you Perez for not realizing how ignorant you can sound sometimes. I doubt your liberal agenda happened to notice that had the tables been turned, and it was Obama, Clinton, or even a Kennedy's head on a steak, the entire country would have been in an uproar. Its unfair of you (and the rest of you idiots) to assume that your political party would handle such tasteless displays with humor and find it amusing instead of disrespectful and disgusting. Shame on HBO for letting something like that go unnoticed. Bush may be a sore subject, and even I can admit he wasn't the best president the United States has ever seen, but he is a father and a husband and his family shouldn't have to see him dehumanized in such a public and scandalous way. Find your humanity. I used to really like you Perez. I hope you learn to be a little less biased.

    If a person was killed on the show because he was gay, you would throwing a hissy fit saying it was homophobic.

    If a black/hispanic/gay is stereotyped in a show, you would be throwing a hissy fit.
    If Hillary Clinton's head was on a pike people would cry sexism
    If obama's head was on a pike people would flip their shit and some would cry racism.

    So, republicans are fair game? The hypocrisy is mind blowing..You blow shit way way out of proportion every damn time..but the second someone does it about something you say "its no big deal" WHY ARE PEOPLE SO DAMN STUPID WHY CAN'T WE HAVE A GENOCIDE TO RID THE WORLD OF IDIOTS

    How about the fact that you care at all means you lose? We're out there in the world bombing brown people, guarding poppy fields with Marines, hacking centrifuges in Tehran, people are being slaughtered in Uganda and most of the world is starving. If you care about this, you are a Level Zero human being. We need Level Ones.

    Re: NookiesWA – Perez would neve cry sexism! He is obviously such a misogynist. If you want the world to be rid of idiots, well then, feel free to go first.
