*GoT SPOILER ALERT* Ranting About Spoilers
I didn't have the Game of Thrones episode last night spoiled for me, but I'm mad for the people who were robbed for their viewing experience.
- •Like millions of other people, I am a fan of the Game of Thrones series.
- •The plot twists and surprises keep me engaged with the story and I believe all fans deserve to go through the journey as much as I do.
- •Therefore, I'm very careful about not spoiling anything for other fans.
- •I know to stay off Twitter when people are live-tweeting the episodes and I'm not watching it in real-time.
- •I will ask my friends if they've seen the episode before I abruptly text them "OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE HE JUST GOT KILLED".Because I can't assume everyone is available at 9PM every Sunday.
- •So I was annoyed last night when Vulture posted this on Facebook a few minutes after the episode last night.
- •The headline basically gave away the spoiler, although you can argue it didn't given the very slight ambiguity.You don't have to try hard to read into it to know that Jon Snow came back based on this line.
- •I thought of a good friend in California who wasn't able to watch the show for another 2 hours. I hope she didn't see this in her Facebook feed.
- •Then this afternoon, the same publication that was so quick to jump to a spoiler last night flat out revealed it less than 24 hours later and shat on it.
- •There are still people who haven't seen the episode and I feel that while you can't expect people to be sensitive to spoiler alerts, the media should be more considerate of them.
- •Enjoy those few extra page views, Vulture.🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻
- •End rant.
