This article contains spoilers for the most recent Game of Thrones episode.

The Internet is still upset about Sansa’s plotline on Sunday night’s episode of Game of Thrones more than a day later, and among the angered fans is a U.S. senator who vowed to stop watching the show.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) has tweeted about things not in the realm of politics such as baseball and trying to figure out her Apple Watch, but she is also a Game of Thrones fan—or at least she was until “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.” She may not have gotten to tweeting about it right away or waited until things settled down, but the Senator of Thorns was not happy about it either.

Her replies are full of terrible vitriol you come to expect from politicians’ Twitter feeds, with some questioning McCaskill on the decision. However, everyone can probably agree on one thing: the Sand Snakes scene left something to be desired.
