All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth has recently taken to Twitter to share his thoughts about the recent fan-made petition urging Game Of Thrones to rewrite its final season.

The petition titled “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers” has garnered almost 1 million signatures on Change.org. The petition calls upon viewers to work together to get HBO to remove writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and remake the entire season.

“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” the petition’s page says. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”

However, the petition has received a lot of backlash from many celebrities, including Gaskarth and Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart.

In a tweet, Gaskarth says viewers don’t get to “dictate” Hollywood. However, Gaskarth further notes that his comments are not Game Of Thrones-specific. Instead, he makes note of viewers’ “sense of entitlement.”

“Fuck this. As an observer/consumer you don’t get to dictate how the creative process develops,” Gaskarth says. “You can not like a thing, that’s fine… Go create something better. We need this passion for things that matter, not how you want your fav TV show to end.”

Additionally, Reinhart’s comments were very similar. In an Instagram comment, Reinhart disagrees with the notion that fans can demand “creative change from artists,” in regards to television.

“This is not how television works,” Reinhart says. “TV shows are not fan service. It’s ridiculous of people to think they can demand creative change from artists.”
