AMC Apologizes For Spoiling Midseason Finale On Facebook


The midseason finale of The Walking Dead aired this weekend, but west coast viewers saw the episode spoiled when the biggest moment of the night was posted about on Facebook. 

When the midseason finale of The Walking Dead aired this weekend on AMC, fans on the East Coast felt what can only be described as a gut punch in the form of a major character death. West coast viewers got more of a sucker punch when the show was spoiled on Facebook by AMC when they ‘jumped the gun’ and posted the spoilers on Facebook.

Ignoring the fact that these people maybe should have avoided social media leading up to the biggest episode of the season, knowing they were a few hours behind, fans who were angry have a point. Posting the spoilers as fast as they were posted was a little shady, and AMC has stepped up to apologize.

AMC has formally apologized for posting the spoiler from the episode on Facebook with a message that tried to get cute but probably failed with the viewers who were subject to the spoilers at the time.

"“We heard your feedback to last night’s post, and we’re sorry,” the post read. “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”"

Fans on the East coast, or fans on the West coast who saw the twist coming may chuckle at this apology but those fans who saw the episode’s twist spoiled are less tickled. The language is cute and very tounge in cheek, but the fact that the episode was spoiled for so many is pretty wild to consider.

This isn’t just a few crabby fanboys crying about the spoilers, it’s a lot of people which is why AMC responded so quickly .
