Walking Dead issues apology for spoiling last night’s episode

FAN REACTION

Last night we reported that Walking Dead’s various social media accounts had spoiled a major death in last night’s episode before it even aired on the West Coast and many other markets. Fans were extremely outraged that the show’s own social media would spoil a pivotal death before a large majority of them had a chance to even view the episode. After an overwhelming response from fans, the post was removed from the show’s Facebook page but was put back up following the end of the West Coast airing.

Today, the show’s Facebook page issued an apology for the spoiler it posted last night:

We heard your feedback to last night’s post, and we’re sorry. With zero negative intent, we jumped the gun and put up a spoiler. Please know we’re going to work to ensure that, in the future, possible spoilers by official AMC social feeds are killed before they can infect, certainly before the West Coast (U.S.) broadcast of The Walking Dead. As always, thank you for watching, and keep the comments coming. We appreciate all of your support. ‪#‎RIPSpoiler‬

Some say that fans should know by now to stay away from social media, but with recently increasing trends of live tweeting along with the show, it is easy to see how fans could be upset with the big spoiler they posted last night.

The Walking Dead returns February 8th on AMC.
