Social media was to be avoided yesterday if you were fighting the fight against spoilers – congratulations are due if you managed to get through the day without spying a revealing statement from our Game of Thrones loving cousins across the pond.

Once we had all watched those final few moments in last night’s episode, though, it was a free for all. And Twitter was a play-by-play, uncensored reaction to the shocking events of The Purple Wedding. 

As King Joffrey bit the dust, the internet was awash with jubilant cries.

Seriously. Never did a death bring so many so much joy…

Or quite so many giggles…

Once it had happened the jokers were out in force…

Though some morally-questionable Thrones fans were a little disappointed his demise wasn’t more drawn out and painful. This show really doesn’t bring out the best in people…

Generally, Twitter showed a real lack of respect for the late king.

Apart from a small few. 

And by small few we mean, just this one man. 

Game of Thrones continues on Mondays at 9:00pm on Sky Atlantic.
