‘Game of Thrones’ Apologizes for Using George W. Bush’s Head on a Stake

This is one way to get ratings. HBO and Game of Thrones apologized on Wednesday after the fantasy series featured former President George W. Bush’s head on stake. The head of the former president appeared for just a second in the fantasy series last year, and went unnoticed until a Reddit user flagged it. In the DVD commentary for the series’ first season, one of the writers admitted Bush’s head appears in some of the beheading scenes—but insisted there were no political motives.
