Perhaps Westeros isn’t the best place to get married.
Sunday night’s “Game of Thrones” saw yet another dramatic death take place at a wedding — this time dubbed the “Purple Wedding” — as King Joffrey was poisoned after saying “I do” to Margaery Tyrell.
As fans (at least those who hadn’t read the books and didn’t know it was coming) freaked out over the dramatic scene, Hollywood also wasn’t immune to the shock, as celebrities took to Twitter to react to the big scene!
