Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are on top of the list of Google search results for “bad writers” after a successful Reddit campaign.
This campaign arose following the airing of “The Last of the Starks” episode. On May 6 (one day after the episode was released), one Reddit user in the r/freefolk subreddit created a post titled “Bad Writers. Upvote this post so its the first result when you google ‘Bad writers.'”
This plan was immediately put forth to action and has seemingly succeeded. Right now, when searching for “bad writers” on the Google search engine, one of the first things that pops up on the first page is that Reddit post. This just begins to show how many people were frustratingly disappointed over the conclusion to the incredibly popular fantasy series.
The eighth and final season of the hit HBO series had massive expectations before its release. For the show’s duration, Game of Thrones was a pop culture phenomenon that grabbed millions of people’s attention. However, numerous fans were disgruntled with the way the writing duo finished the show. Despite the intense hatred that has spewed over the show’s finale, author George R.R. Martin, who wrote the franchise’s original book series, has defended Benioff and Weiss through thick and then.
Both writers are currently slated to write and produce their own Star Wars movie trilogy for Disney. The first film is scheduled to be released in 2022.
