    Game of Thrones Heard the Complaints, Will Temper the Sexual Violence in Season 6

    Audiences will be seeing a different "Game of Thrones" in season 6 next year.

    The award-winning series from HBO is set to tone down sexual violence, with potentially less brutality and rape scenes following fan outrage with Sansa Stark's controversial rape scene in May.

    In "Game of Thrones" in Season 5, Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) was brutally raped by Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) at the eve of their wedding. As if that wasn't enough, Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), who Sansa grew up with, was forced to watch the rape.

    Because of the negative feedback, showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss will be "responsive to the discussion and there were a couple of things that changed as a result," according to director Jeremy Podeswa at an event at Fox Studios Australia.

    According to Mashable, George R. R. Martin apologized to fans when the negative feedback went massive.

    "I do regret if it has disturbed people for the wrong reasons," he told fans.

    As for British actress Sophie Turner, her reaction to the rape scene is the opposite of negativity. According to the Daily Mail, the 19-year-old actress, who played the role of Sansa since 13, even defended the scene at the time of the uproar.

    "When I read that scene, I kinda loved it... it was all so messed up," Turner said.

    The sixth season of Game of Thrones is scheduled for an April release on HBO.

    I haven't heard any complaints about Theon have his penis cut off and brainwashed into slavery. Sansa being raped was pretty tame for the show

    Just the look on Alfie Allen's face during that segment was honestly worse than seeing the actual rape itself

    I didn't read the books but if that was in the books, then why should they change it? RR Martin should tell them to kiss his ass, he wrote the story, everything has had a reason, they don't just rape people for the fuck of it. Ramsey is to be hated just like king Geoffrey, who also did some vile things, everyone calm the fuck down and let the artist and his work speak for itself. It's kinda like how they took the N word out of huck Finn, you either like the product or don't, don't ask the world to change everything you don't approve of

    No it was a feminist thing.


    A lot of stuff has been changed in the books. And the reason is because some of the storylines are ahead of the books now. George R. R. Martin is advising them where to go. The complaints were over "misogyny" saying the rape was a plot tool or something

    Aaaaaand there's your double standard ladies and germs. It's ok if something deplorable happens to a male character.....but if it happens to a woman......well we need to stop production and issue an apology. It's laughable.

    Where was the uproar in Season 1 when Daenerys is raped by Drogo and then falls in love with her rapist?

    I never go to porn sites. Sex and nakedness in the context of a great show is what I prefer.

    No one cared when she fucked the 14 year old even though she's like 30. what if it was reversed? The whiners would be out in full force. The Game of Thrones people should just ignore them all.

    Lol i dont think you represent the majority

    GOT is supposed to represent a brutal society it's not supposed to be pleasantville. Trump should make this his next campaign topic
