ARE YOU A FAN OF THIS "Game of Thrones?" HBO pulling ‘Game of Thrones’ episode which featured likeness of former President George W. Bush on severed head 'We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste
The likeness of former President George W. Bush appears on a severed head in the HBO series 'Game of Thrones.'
They have got better eye sight than I do because I don't see it do you?
Heads may yet roll over the controversy surrounding the use of a model of President George W. Bush's likeness for a decapitation victim on a spike in an episode of "Game of Thrones."
In the face of outrage from conservative critics, HBO announced Friday that it was pulling the episode in question - last year's season finale - from its rotation, as well as iTunes and HBO GO and froze all shipments of DVD box sets, until the offending scene could be edited out.
"We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste," the network said in a statement Friday. "We made this clear to the executive producers of the series, who apologized immediately for this careless mistake.
"We condemn it in the strongest possible terms and have halted all future shipments of the DVDs, removed it from our digital platforms and will edit the scene for all future airings on any distribution domestic or international."
