‘Game of Thrones’ prop ‘George Bush’ head now nondescript as possible (Photo)

HBO fell hard on its sword after a Redditor made the Internet aware that the creators of “Game of Thrones” said a prop head used during the show’s first season finale resembled that of former president George W. Bush.

Apologies were made by the channel and by creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, who said they meant no disrespect when they made the comments on the DVD commentary.

After the kerfuffle, HBO pulled the episode from its streaming service HBO GO, as well as iTunes, and shipments of the first season DVD were stopped.

Now the episode is back online, offering a look at the new, not scandalous prop head.

There you have it. The head is now as nondescript as possible, resembling no one famous. Unless ... hey, do you think it sort of looks like Francine from the PBS cartoon “Arthur?”
