West Bromwich Albion striker Victor Anichebe is not a happy man and there’s only one guy to blame – no, not Tony Pulis, but none other than actor Kit Harrington.
To those who may have spent the last few years living under a stone, Harrington is one of the main characters in the HBO drama series Game of Thrones.
Playing the part of Jon Snow, the British thespian has emerged as one of the breakout stars of the fantasy epic, and boasts quite a large personal fanbase as a result.
But Anichebe most definitely no longer counts among than number after Harrington snubbed the West Brom star after he attempted to get a photo alongside the leader of the Night’s Watch.
Maybe it’s because the 27-year-old has played just 16 minutes of Premier League football for the Baggies this term but, for whatever reason, the Nigeria international was not going to take it lying down.
So he did what any self-respecting footballer does these days and vented his frustration on Twitter.
1/3 Bumped into Kit Harrington & Rose Leslie at my hotel and being a big #GOT fan asked nicely for a pic...— Victor Anichebe (@VictorAnichebe) September 30, 2015
2/3 Shame that they refused & felt to act the way they did, I would never decline someone a picture as without fans we're nothing...— Victor Anichebe (@VictorAnichebe) September 30, 2015
3/3 I hope Jon Snow really is dead now in @GameOfThrones.....— Victor Anichebe (@VictorAnichebe) September 30, 2015
Now, Anichebe may not be the most popular forward at the Hawthorns at present, but we kind of think he has a point here.
But in going up against Jon Snow, the former Everton man might be letting himself in for a torrent of abuse from GoT fans in the process.
