New Zealand police join world in clamp down on Game of Thrones spoilers
Police worldwide are combining (social media) forces to crack down on the most pressing issue of our time: Game of Thrones spoilers.
Canterbury Police tapped into the zeitgeist, saying: "Just remember folks, it is not an offence to publish Game of Thrones spoilers. It's not cool. Not cool at all, but not an offence."
Game of Thrones returned on Monday after a year-long hiatus. The Thrones television phenomenon has reached its seventh season.
The Canterbury police also controversially picked sides pledging their allegiance to the House Targaryen.
"No way anyone in the Mainland thinks a King in the North is a good idea," they wrote.
Police in Australia went a step further, with a public service announcement warning they would have no sympathy for spoilers.
The New South Wales Police Force informed its Facebook followers that a "new penalty notice" had been introduced.
Anyone caught posting a Game of Thrones spoiler would be fined $250 as of Monday, they joked.
