Ian McShane, an actor that appeared in "roughly 15 minutes of a single Game of Thrones episode," according to EW, decided he had the right to criticize the fans of the show for their obsession. In an interview that appears in the April issue of Empire Magazine, McShane defended the fact that he semi-spoiled a major plot point in the last season, and called out the fans instead.

"You’ll have forgotten [the spoiler] by the time it comes out," he said, addressing the show's fans in the interview. And then, he really went after them. "And what am I giving away? A character beloved by everybody returns. Get a f—ing life. The show is huge but some fans seem to identify with it [too closely]. You want to say, 'Have you thought about your lifestyle? Maybe you should get out a little more.'"

Yo, that's mean! But this isn't the first time McShane has mocked the fans of the show and the show itself. Back when McShane let slip that one of the characters would be returning to the show and faced the backlash, he brushed the comment off by attacking the show for being about "tits and dragons." Then, he said he expected that HBO would love the publicity he was giving the show. Honestly? This guy sounds like a d-bag. Unlike Hodor, who is not only a nice person and gentle giant, but is also a DJ! A DJ!
