HBO Really Wants Trump To Lay Off The 'Game Of Thrones' References

They're just not that into you

The president of the United States felt it was necessary to respond to the release of the redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report with a meme, and has once again channeled the Game of Thrones aesthetic. His new Photoshop job juxtaposes the words "game over" over a view of the back side of his bad toupee, and HBO would really, really prefer he stopped using its imagery.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO said, "Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes," which is a nice way of saying that they don't want to be associated with the cheeto-in-chief.

Back when Trump shared his first GoT meme, the cast shared its distaste as well. Actresses Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams replied "ew" and "not today," which honestly feel like appropriate replies to just about anything Trump tweets. I personally cannot wait to hear their responses to this fresh image; I can imagine they will be searing as always.

The victory lap, as always, was a bit too soon for Trump, as the public has combed through the report to find out that it definitely does not clear him.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
