If you haven’t watched the Game of Thrones finale, stop here. If you have or just don’t care who became king of Westeros, hold on to your hats, because Meghan McCain is getting the internet all kinds of riled up.
During Monday’s episode of The View, McCain shocked viewers and her co-hosts by revealing the ending of Game of Thrones without much warning. “Bran is the worst,” she said. “He didn’t do anything and now he gets to rule? It should have been the Mother of Dragons,” she continued.
Co-host Sunny Hostin and the studio audience gasped at the unexpected reveal. “Meghan! I’m only on season four!” shouted Hostin. But McCain didn’t think she did anything wrong. “I wasn’t told I wasn’t allowed to say it! I’m sorry everyone, but it’s all over the internet,” said McCain in an attempt to defend herself.
She went on to describe herself as “a dedicated fan who watched live last night like everyone is supposed to.”
McCain also revealed she was disappointed with how the show wrapped up. “I spent eight years of my life watching this and it was a horrible ending. Horrible.”
McCain immediately took to Twitter to apologize to viewers for the spoiler following the broadcast, and warned fans to skip today’s episode if they haven’t already watched:
I’m so sorry for the #GOT spoilers on the show today! I assumed every diehard fan had watched! My bad. Don’t watch west coast if you don’t want a spoiler. 😞— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) May 20, 2019
Some viewers felt McCain had nothing to apologize for and stood up for her:
Don't be sorry,they should have watched.— Lisa K S (@LisaS82385953) May 20, 2019
If you didnt want spoilers should have stayed of tv and social media, GOT finale is already old news.— Michelle Perez (@Michelleprojas) May 20, 2019
Others took her to task for revealing the ending:
So disappointed. I do not have HBO, and watch it with friends later in the week. Thanks Meghan😣— Mebsb0321 (@MaryBallentin10) May 20, 2019
I don’t even watch #GoT and I can’t believe Meghan gave away the ending on national television, then wants to act like a dumbass who doesn’t know that revealing spoilers is wrong unless you preface it. #Theview @TheView pic.twitter.com/ytMp4inTYl— 💫 (@KimTrashdashian) May 20, 2019
