Robb Stark deserved his “Red Wedding” fate, according to one commenter on the Tumblr site “Men Taking Up Too Much Space on the Train.” Richard Madden, who portrayed the HBO character who met his maker in the bloody and much buzzed about “Game of Thrones” episode, was photographed sitting slouched in a seat with his legs spread wide apart on the London Tube.
While this particular Tumblr site is geared toward shaming inconsiderate men who take more than their fair share of space on public transportation, many Tumblr bloggers seem to feel this particular train rider deserves a free pass.
“The King of the North can take up as much space as he wants,” writes one blogger, while another adds, “The only reason he’s taking up so much space is because Winter is coming.”
Still some are a little more judgmental, leaving comments like, “Wow, Robb maybe if you’d just been a bit more gracious on the subway your family would still be alive” and “Oh man, Robb Stark is a subway leg-spreader?! Maybe the Red Wedding was justified after all.” Another blogger called for the actor to be castrated. Ouch.
