'Game of Thrones' finale: 'The View' host Meghan McCain slammed by co-host, viewers for spoiling series finale

WARNING: This article contains major spoilers about the "Game of Thrones" series finale

Meghan McCain spoiled the ending of "Game of Thrones" on Monday's episode of "The View," and nobody is happy about it.

When the day's hot topics discussion shifted towards the controversial ending of HBO's most successful show ever, the conservative pundit aired out her grievances and revealed who ended up sitting on the Iron Throne at the end of the series with little warning that she was about to deliver a whopping spoiler.

"I spent eight years of my life watching this, and it was a horrible ending. Horrible!" McCain proclaimed. "Bran [Stark] is the worst. Sorry, that's a spoiler. He didn't do anything, and now he gets to rule? It should've been the Mother of Dragons."

In addition to the audience audibly gasping at the bombshell reveal, co-host Sunny Hostin threw her hands up in the air and said, "Oh, Meghan. I'm only on season four!"

Hostin and fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg were so shocked that they actually got up from the table.

"I'm sorry, but it's all over the internet," McCain shot back. "I wasn't told I wasn't allowed to say it. I'm sorry, everyone. It's all over the internet. You would have found out one way or the other. As a dedicated fan who watched it live last night like everyone was supposed to, okay?"

"I'm sorry you guys were so triggered by me telling the ending. You guys are, like, genuinely upset!" she added while pointing at audience members. "Why is this a hot topic, then, if I'm not supposed to talk about it? Then I don't know why I have notes for a hot topic I wasn't supposed to talk about."

While Goldberg wasn't as offended as Hostin by McCain's accidental spoiler (she stopped watching a while back after the show's "Red Wedding"), Behar couldn't have cared less because she has never seen the hit HBO series.

Hours after the episode aired on ABC during its normal East Coast time slot, McCain took to Twitter to apologize for the gaffe.

"I’m so sorry for the #GOT spoilers on the show today!" she tweeted. "I assumed every diehard fan had watched! My bad. Don’t watch west coast if you don’t want a spoiler."

Unsurprisingly, people called her out in the responses to her apology.

"Yo!! Entitled Princess of Arizona, that was a bad selfish move," one person replied. "But, then again, self entitlement can go a long way."

"Learn to think before speaking," someone else suggested.

"I’ve never seen the show but there are a lot of ppl that DVR it cause they have to work and stuff," another user wrote. "Oh man!!! People all over America are freaking out!!!! Lol. Oops!!!"
