The Lost co-creator pointed out the Game of Thrones author recently criticizing "toxic" fan culture on the internet on the Maltin on Movies podcast. "The internet is toxic in a way that old fanzine culture and fandoms — comics fans, science fiction fans — in those days, was not,” said Martin. His comments come on the heels of Game of Thrones being voted the worst series finale ever on IMDb. Well, in 2011, shortly before Game of Thrones premiered, Martin criticized the Lost series finale, telling The New Yorker he “watched (Lost) every week trying to figure it out, and as it got deeper and deeper, I kept saying, ‘They better have something good in mind for the end. This better pay off here.’ And then I felt so cheated when we got to the conclusion.” Lindelof responded over the weekend by posting Martin's "toxic" comment on Instagram with the caption: “I agree with you, George. And I remain a huge fan of your work. That said, I’ve always wondered if you’d be House Stark or House Lannister… now I know it’s House Glass. Let’s stop throwing stones, shall we? #Turd #TheNorthRemembers."
