Jabs at Joffrey! 'Game of Thrones' fans roast the king online
"Your breath smells like a Dothraki horde." Fans take advantage of their chance to mock the most-hated "Game of Thrones" monarch with the two-day social-media smackdown #RoastJoffrey.
The current king of Westeros, Joffrey Baratheon, is not only hated in his fictional kingdom, but also loathed by real-world "Game of Thrones" fans who wish someone would give the young tyrant a good spanking, or even better -- a quick shove off a cliff.
While fans can't determine his fate on the show, they can still offer up their best stabs at the short-tempered king thanks to #RoastJoffrey, a two-day interactive slap in the royal brat's face.
"All roast the King! Lend us your tongues, taunts, and tweets for the first social-media roast of the 'beloved' King Joffrey," HBO encourages on RoastJoffrey.com.
Fans who want to offer up their best taunts should join in the fun on Twitter, Vine, Instagram and Facebook using the hashtag #RoastJoffrey.
Featured roasters on RoastJoffrey.com include celebrities director Eli Roth, model and reality TV star Adrianne Curry, rock stars Joel and Benji Madden, "Project Runway" judge Nina Garcia, comedian Steve Harvey, and comedian Joe Rogan, among others. Even Charmin toilet paper got in on the hate parade, sharing that "There are some people so crappy even we won't go near them. #RoastJoffrey #tweetfromthethrone."
Here are just a few more of our favorites:
"Would the heir to Baratheon please stand up, please stand up, please stand up." No no Joffrey, you sit back down. #RoastJoffrey— Chrissyyy. (@chrissy_nguyenn) December 13, 2013
