The rewrite plea had more support than a petition asking Target to “stop filling the world with plastic bags,” another that wants to “Stop Terrorist Violence Spreading on Facebook” and one requesting the release of the full version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report.
“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (the series’ creators) have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” wrote Dylan D., who launched the petition.

It’s almost inconceivable that HBO bosses would consider remaking the big-budget blockbuster TV series, and many folks on Twitter are expressing annoyance with the petition’s popularity.
