People Won’t Stop Leaking ‘Game of Thrones’ Episodes

It’s believed to be the most-pirated show of all time

Apparently once a week isn't enough for some Game of Thrones fans. The series is believed to be the most-pirated show of all time, according to Variety, and this week the HBO series was hit twice as hard. 

Earlier this week, someone leaked the fourth episode of GoT season seven, set to premiere August 6, on a discussion board on Reddit, the Verge reports. 

The full episode, "The Spoils of War,"  was available for a short time via Google Drive. Soon after it was posted, it was updated with the message: “The file has been taken down for violating GoogleDrive’s [terms of service]. You can no longer view it.” But, according to reports, it's still being shared on torrent-based file-sharing sites. 

According to Variety, this latest leak is unrelated to the recent massive hack of HBO's systems—where 1.5 terabytes of documents and files were stolen, including the script for the August 6 episode of GoT. There were also episodes of Insecure, Ballers, and Room 104

These latest leaks are some of many GoT has experienced over the years. In 2015, someone leaked the first four episodes of season five just one day before its premiere. During season six, an episode leaked after being accidentally made available on HBO Nordic

This time, the leak came from a pay-TV distribution partner Star India, the Verge reports. “We take this breach very seriously and have immediately initiated forensic investigations at our and the technology partner’s end to swiftly determine the cause,” a rep for Star India said in a statement. “This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action.”

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
