Some Game of Thrones fans are going a little too far regarding this last season. The first five episodes have been received with a whirlwind of theories, upset fans and now even hateful messages. After James Corden spoiled a huge detail from last week's episode, "The Bells," one troll wrote online that he wished Corden's child got cancer. Yes, we're serious. And Corden has now responded.
During one of Corden's monologues on The Late Late Show, he couldn't help but slip in a reference to Daenerys Targaryen's recent destruction of King's Landing. "I feel like this trade war is going to end with Trump, riding on the back of a dragon, torching the entire economy," the comedian said.
Don't worry, everyone! President Trump knows exactly how to get out of this trade war with China... pic.twitter.com/B0LBrxQEbW— ✨ The Late Late Show with James Corden ✨ (@latelateshow) May 14, 2019
"It’s f**ked up you can’t even watch TV without a fat f**k spoiling something… Luckily I got to see it before this, but seriously I hope his kid gets cancer," a hateful internet troll wrote on Twitter in response to Corden's joke, according to The Blast. The tweet has since been deleted.
Corden responded somehow maturely, asking the person to "take a minute and think about what you just wrote."
That is, without question, the single most upsetting thing I think you could ever say about me or my family. Please take a minute and think about what you just wrote and whether you want to be a person who publicly says such things.I believe you’re better than that x— James Corden (@JKCorden) May 14, 2019
Corden continued in response to a now-unavailable tweet, which seemingly was the troll defending their statement.
Well I saw your hope for my https://t.co/sXNdumvMFm hope for yours is that they never get to read that their mother or father would wish cancer on any child as ‘a joke’.Because however you defend it to them,they’ll never be able to understand how you could do such a thing.Night x— James Corden (@JKCorden) May 14, 2019
The person's Twitter account is now suspended. We're proud of Corden for his positive response, and can only hope the devoted Game of Thrones fan who says hateful things like this will stay off the internet for a very long time.
