Emilia Clarke was insulted by the CEO of a major television company

The CEO of an Australian TV company by the name of Foxtel is in trouble after he recently made horrific comments about Emilia Clarke. That CEO is Patrick Delany, who said, “I was like, ‘What is this show with the chunky little girl walking through the fire? “” Delany was trying to make a joke about the first time he saw game of throneswhich concerned the country receiving the first of Dragon House. Dragon House is the spin-off series from the prequel that follows House Targaryen, which is the house where the character of Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) came from. Based on those comments, Delany and Foxtel have since apologized.

We don’t know exactly which series he watched, but there’s nothing short or silly about Emilia Clarke. She happens to be a very beautiful woman. The joke could have been more about his character walking through fire, but being short and stocky has nothing to do with this epic scene. Apparently, as Delany made the comment about Clarke at the event, there was an audible gasp heard from the crowd. The crowd seemed just as offended as we were. Clarke happens to be one of the most beloved actresses based on her time on game of thrones. Sure, her ending was far from perfect, but she became a superstar because of this series.

A statement was read on Delany’s comments which read: “On behalf of Mr. Delany, Foxtel Group apologizes if his remarks were misunderstood and caused any offence.” For now, Emilia Clarke has not responded to these comments. She’s probably had to deal with enemies throughout her career and can probably take them down. However, a CEO of a major television company shouldn’t insult one of the people who probably made that company a ton of money. In fact, the controversial season finale is said to have garnered the most overnight subscribers to Foxtel in 2019.

Dragon House may have already aired in Australia, but the US will have to wait until Sunday, August 21 to see this epic series unfold on HBO. Everyone was very excited to see this extension of game of thrones, especially since it revolves around one of the most controversial families in the lore of the books. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is the daughter of Aerys II, who is one of the central figures talked about in the original series. Aerys was known as the “Mad King” and pretty much stopped any Targaryen from taking the Iron Throne.

Dragon House won’t feature Emilia Clarke in any way, but we’ll see what her family was like before the infamous “Mad King” took the Iron Throne. Delany may have spoken cheekily of excitement for the new series, but Clarke is nothing but a beautiful woman who has become beloved around the world. She went from being one of the biggest fan-favorite characters to game of thrones to also appear in the Star Wars universe in the Solo film. Now we just need her to appear in the MCU, which will coincidentally happen in Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Let’s see a short, stocky person do this.
