HBO Has Edited the Coffee Cup Out of 'Game of Thrones'
Yesterday, all anyone could talk about was the Game of Thrones coffee cup left perched in front of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in a scene from Season 8, Episode 4. Now, however, HBO has erased history and sent said coffee cup to the great mixed recycling bin in the sky.

Although HBO did not announce it was removing the java receptacle, those that watch GoT on HBO Go or Crave will likely notice that the cup o' joe has since been removed.

"The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake," a spokeswoman for HBO said in a statement yesterday (May 6). "Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."

Art director Hauke Richter added, "We are usually so diligent that this does not happen. The shoot was very hard and demanding and it is likely that after a very tiring episode three shoot, this was simply overlooked by an exhausted crew."

Of course, the coffee was still endlessly roasted. Read more tweets about it below.
