Meghan McCain Is Sorry If She “Triggered” Viewers with ‘Game of Thrones’ Spoilers

On Sunday night, millions of people tuned into HBO for the series finale of Game of Thrones. The reactions are pretty widely split, but The View‘s Meghan McCain is firmly anti, and she couldn’t wait for everyone to know it, spoilers be damned. (Also, there are spoilers coming.)

During Monday’s episode of The View, as soon as co-host Whoopi Goldberg brought up the finale, McCain immediately expressed her displeasure with a spoiler-filled tirade. “I spent eight years of my life watching this,” she said. “And it was a horrible ending. Bran is the worst. Sorry, spoiler. He didn’t do anything and now he gets to rule? Should have been the mother of dragons…”

“Meghan!” co-host Sonny Hostin shouted. “I’m only on season four!”

Hostin, come on, you were four seasons behind. You weren’t going to get through several days’ worth of television before somebody gave away the ending. But more to the point, while we as a society haven’t settled on universal spoiler etiquette yet, a widely accepted rule of thumb is you say “spoiler” before saying the actual spoiler. Doing it after actually just confirms to whomever you’re talking to that, yes, you spoiled it for them. Some might argue that it’s courteous to wait at least 24 hours or, you know, give it a little thought and craft a spoiler-free take.

McCain dismissed Hostin’s complaints, and some apparently shocked faces in the audience, by saying that real fans are supposed to watch the show when it airs (note: this is not a real rule) and saying, “I’m sorry you guys are so triggered by me telling the ending.” That doesn’t actually sound like an apology, but it does track for someone who was rooting for Daenerys even after she turned into a budding genocidal tyrant.
