    The answer is simple. In real life, like in fiction, people are ok with killing people who aren't of their perceived "tribes". Now audiences are shocked that a mass murderer killed people of the "right tribe". Thing is, despots kill people of the "right tribe" more than people of the "naughty tribes". But clearly the lesson isn't learn. All disatisfaction is put on bad writting instead of people doing some soul searching and asking themselves if they do not favor immoral behavior and authoritarianism.

    My only consolation is that I'll get to say "I told you so". If all goes wrong of course.

    Because people are often wrong.

    When she committed mass murder before?
    She has never committed mass murder. She has pretended to on T.V., though.

    The answer is simple. In real life, like in fiction, people are ok with killing people who aren't of their perceived "tribes".
    The answer is simple, and it has nothing whatsover to do with real life. The answer is because T.V. is pretend and it's fun.

    My only consolation is that I'll get to say "I told you so". If all goes wrong of course.
    Dude. I don't know where you've been, but it has already gone wrong and it had nothing to do with cheering pretend killing.

    You've never watched Games of Thrones it seems. It explains a lot.

    So you''d be ok with people cheering the pretend rape of Sansa? That tells me a lot about who you are.

    That is pretend doesn't matter. It is just moving the goal post. People are shocked by immoral behavior, when they cheered for the same immoral behavior a few seasons ago. It is a reflection of their moral values. MArtin tried to show that, but it is going over your head. No lesson is learn what so ever.
