HBO And ‘Game Of Thrones’ Stars Are Not Happy With Trump’s Meme

On Friday, Trump tweeted a meme that said “Sanctions Are Coming,” inspired by the show’s ubiquitous “Winter Is Coming” tag line. The tweet was meant to announce that the U.S. will re-impose sanctions on Iran on Monday, after Trump’s decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal brokered by the Obama administration.

“We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes,” HBO said in a statement responding to Trump’s tweet.

The network and at least two of the show’s stars also expressed their disapproval on Twitter.
