The Biggest And Most Problematic Death So Far On 'Game Of Thrones' Final Season Upsets Black Twitter

May 6th 2019

For weeks now, we've suspected that at the conclusion of the final season of Game of Thrones, at least one of the shows primary Black characters, Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) or Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel), would end up dying.

Major, sad and dark Game of Thrones spoilers are coming below.

Well, on Sunday, it actually happened. Missandei and Grey Worm didn't get the chance to make it to Atlanta as the former was killed at the hands of Cersei (Lena Headey).

And it seems like more than her being killed in general, folks are mad at the way she was killed and where she met her maker -- in the Game of Thrones' equivalent to MAGA-land.

While most are in agreement that Dany (Emilia Clarke) had been getting on folks' nerves recently, it's only right that she avenges Missandei's death.

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay was among the critics on Twitter. She and actress Jessica Chastain discussed their thoughts on Twitter. The former talked about how rape is utilized in the show, whlie the When They See Us creator noted that the show killed its the Black woman character it had during its duration.
