Sophie Turner Has Zero Time For That ‘Disrespectful’ Fan Petition To Remake The Final Season Of ‘Game Of Thrones’

Passionate Game of Thrones fans were so upset over the turn of events in the penultimate episode and the series finale that many sounded off on social media immediately after the credits rolled.

Unforgiving audiences who felt the writing on the last season was rushed demanded a rewrite with “competent writers.”

The Change.org petition titled “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers” garnered over a million signatures by Tuesday, and Sophie Turner — who played Sansa Stark — had something to say about the fiasco.

The actress supported everyone involved in the production and told the New York Times in an interview that the negative pushback was “disrespectful.”

“All of these petitions and things like that — I think it’s disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season.”

“Like 50-something night shoots. So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it’s not what they want to see is just disrespectful.”

You can’t please everybody. Turner reminded her audience that they can’t always expect storylines to pan out as they hoped.

“People always have an idea in their heads of how they want a show to finish, and so when it doesn’t go to their liking, they start to speak up about it and rebel.”

Fans argued that HBO should cater to fans who helped make the show a phenomenal success.

That argument was snuffed.

Some fans couldn’t still get over it.

Turner was perfectly satisfied with Sansa becoming the reigning Queen of the North.

“I loved it. It’s the only place that she really, truly feels safe. It’s the place that she’s the most capable of ruling. She would be a fair and loving ruler, and it’s what she’s been striving for this whole series: to go back home, to protect her home. And finally she has that.”

And with that, let’s move on.
