Politicians are calling for a boycott of HBO's fantasy series Game of Thrones after the creator's 'despicable' decision to include former President George W. Bush's severed head in several scenes.

In the tenth episode of the first season, Mr Bush's decapitated head is seen impaled on a wooden spike, covered in filthy long hair and slathered in dirt.

Show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who noted the appearance in the series' DVD commentary, insist it wasn't a political statement - just a prop.

But the image has provoked outrage among some Republican politicians.

Memories: When the show's creators revisit the scene in the DVD commentary, they make sure viewers notice the former Head of State

'It's not a choice. It's not a political statement. It's just.. we had to use what heads we had lying around.'

Apparently a very large number of people 




HBO is pulling a controversial episode of its fantasy series Game of Thrones from rotation until scenes in which former President George W. Bush's severed head appears impaled on a stake are edited out.

After a fierce backlash from critics and politicians, the network announced on Friday that it was pulling the offending episode - last year's season finale - from its rotation, freezing shipments of DVD box sets and halting sales on iTunes until the embarrassing blunder was fixed.


wow somebody does care


thank you for your inquiry
