(CNN) – HBO issued an apology Wednesday after astute observers of the popular show “Game of Thrones” noticed a familiar silhouette on a decapitated head atop a spike. [...]
“It’s not a political statement. We just had to use whatever heads we had lying around,” one of the creators says.
HBO is “deeply dismayed” that a severed GW Bush prop head was used in a scene in their season finale of “Game of Thrones.” There were a several severed parts in the scene, and since W’s head was, you know, lying around (as it’s wont to do), it was picked up and used.
I guess there was a shortage of non-notable heads.
Here’s the apology that appeared on, yes, Facebook:
“We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste… We made this clear to the executive producers of the series who apologized immediately for this inadvertent careless mistake. We are sorry this happened and will have it removed from any future DVD production.”
Wait… they’re having his head removed? Again?
It makes one wonder what other celebrity heads are lying around.
