“The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirman has clarified his comments about George R.R. Martin and “Game of Thrones.” During an interview with Rolling Stone about his new Cinemax show “Outcast,” Kirkman was quick to separate himself from Martin’s choices. Martin has revealed the end of “GoT” to his producing team, but Kirkman shut down any possibility of taking that course of action.
“I would never do that,” Kirkman said. “That’s the one thing I’m disappointed in George R.R. Martin for doing. He should have just been like, ‘F— you. You make it up now, I’ll get to mine when I’m ready.'”
However, Kirkman added some context to these statements, saying that he may have jumped the gun when describing his feelings because he actually loves “Game of Thrones.”
Kirkman tweeted: “‘Disappointed’ is probably the wrong word. I was just joking about how I would have handled the situation. Love ‘GoT,’ love GRRM.”
"Disappointed" is probably the wrong word. I was just joking about how I would have handled that situation. Love GOT, love GRRM.
He also praised the writer, saying “George R.R. Martin is a far better writer than I’ll ever be. And I’m loving the new season of ‘Game of Thrones.’ It’s my favorite show on TV!”

Martin himself came under attack back in 2011 when he voiced his disappointment with the ending of ABC’s “Lost.”
Kirkman’s “Outcast” premieres Friday at 10 p.m. on Cinemax.
The newest episode of “Game of Thrones,” “The Broken Man,” airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO.
