The latest episode of the HBO show Game Of Thrones created a major uproar over the weekend following the death of a major character.
In Sunday's episode, "The Last of the Starks," Missandei of Naath (Nathalie Emmanuel), Daenerys' trusted adviser, was beheaded by Cersei's army. To add insult to injury, she was beheaded right in front of her lover, Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson).
Like every Game Of Thrones episode, the creation of countless memes and videos soon followed, courtesy of Twitter. However, the demise of Missandei struck a chord and ignited an uproar online, in large part because she was one of two Black characters on the show.
However, it seems as if Jacob Anderson and Nathalie Emmanuel are taking her death in stride, as evidenced by their participation in the Running Man Challenge.
In a tweet posted Tuesday by Anderson, the two actors are depicted doing the Running Man dance as Anderson sings the lyrics to the '90s song “My Boo” by Ghost Town DJs into a bullhorn. Anderson, who also goes by his musical alias Raleigh Ritchie, caps off the tweet with the caption, "I know it hurts. But Somewhere in the multiverse."
