This Politician Just Said What Everyone Is Thinking About Game of Thrones

May 19, 2015

Sen. Claire McCaskill is officially done with Game of Thrones.

"Ok, I'm done Game of Thrones," McCaskill said Tuesday morning on Twitter.
"Water Garden, stupid.Gratuitous rape scene disgusting and unacceptable.It was a rocky ride that just ended.

The Missouri Democrat sent out the stream of consciousness tweet Tuesday morning, likely after wrapping up the HBO series’ most recent episode, which featured a brutal wedding-night rape scene that many criticized.

In the episode, Sansa Stark, played by Sophie Turner, was raped by her brute of a new husband shortly after saying I do. “It was a brutal, uncomfortable scene that almost certainly had viewers pleading with their screens and cursing them after,” TIME's Eric Dodds wrote.

Turner, for her part, said she "loved" the scene, and George R.R. Martin, who wrote the books that inspired the series, defended what's come to be called the "black wedding" scene.
