George RR Martin of Game of Thrones was an indirect victim of fan hatred for the TV series finale, and the writer herself recently tried to talk about this trend of fans lashing out at their beloved franchises.
Below are George RR Martin’s words on this:
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power isn’t out yet, but there’s already some World War II-style controversy online. They drop atomic bombs on everyone. If you were ever a Star Trek fan you loved Star Trek, now half of Star Trek fans hate the franchise. And so are the fans of Star Wars, and those of Tolkien with The Rings of Power. What the hell is going on?
George RR Martin’s words come after the writer drew a comparison between Game of Thrones and Star Wars, stating that more characters die in Star Wars than in Game of Thrones. A good geek and writer, Martin likes to compare franchises and his own productions.
