Why Fans Shouldn’t Piss Off George RR Martin
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he Game of Thrones author George RR Martin was told the other week of readers concerns that he might not live long enough to finish the fantasy series. His ‘come at me bro’ response was absolutely priceless.
Not only was he quoted as replying, “fuck you to those people”, he stuck up his middle finger just to really ram the message home.
The best thing about this overreaction for me is who he is directing his rageful response at. I mean it’s essentially his biggest fans, the people who admire his work so much that they cannot bear the thought of not knowing the what happens in the end. Fuck them!
You know what I’d do if I was Mr Martin? I’d threaten them with a terrible ending to the books, warn them that if they carry on he will kill off all their favourite characters and start lopping off a few more knobs.
These are the kind off threats they will respond to and this is a man who is not afraid to do it. He’s killed off plenty of characters before, he’s made enough money already, not to mention he’s the kind of guy who tells his biggest fans to go fuck themselves!
These die hard fans need to remember who they are dealing with and exercise a bit of tact. I wouldn’t be surprised if he hasn’t executed a couple of Danearys already in his raging state. Heaven forbid he gets really pissed and ends up doing a J K Rowling, writing a final scene where all the characters are a decade older just to really spite the hair and makeup team on the film crew.
