Kit Harington Tells Game Of Thrones Haters To 'Go F*** Themselves'

The final season of Game of Thrones has really divided opinion, hasn't it? Some have said it's the best of them all, while others have absolutely slated it. There was even a petition to get the whole of the series remade - with 'competent' writers.

But Kit Harington, who played one of the show's main characters, Jon Snow, has hit back at GoT haters. Not holding back in the slightest, Kit took a swipe at people who have criticised the final series, in an interview with Esquire.

He said: "How I feel about the show right now is quite defiant.

"I think no matter what anyone thinks about this season - and I don't mean to sound mean about critics here - but whatever critic spends half an hour writing about this season and makes their [negative] judgement on it, in my head they can go fuck themselves."

Can't argue with that, Kit.

He continued: "I know how much work was put into this. I know how much people cared about this. I know how much pressure people put on themselves and I know how many sleepless nights working or otherwise people had on this show.

"Because they cared about it so much. Because they cared about the characters. Because they cared about the story. Because they cared about not letting people down."

However, some people certainly did feel let down by the show's final season. The online petition to get it remade has so far received more than 1,380,000 signatures and it shows no signs of slowing.

Obviously, it's unlikely to make a difference, what with season 8 having aired already - and Kit says in no uncertain terms that he doesn't care if people aren't pleased.

He added: "Now if people feel let down by it, I don't give a fuck - because everyone tried their hardest.

"That's how I feel. In the end, no one's bigger fans of the show than we are, and we're kind of doing it for ourselves. That's all we could do, really. And I was just happy we got to the end."

Kit's not the only cast member to feel pissed off by people's negativity. Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark, has had her say on the petitions too.

Speaking to CNN, she said: "I think it's disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season.

"Like, 50-something night shoots. So many people worked so, so hard on it, and for people to just rubbish it because it's not what they want to see is just disrespectful."

You can't please everyone, can you?
