Game of Thrones creators announce new alternate timeline show 'Confederate' and Twitter erupted

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff, DB Weiss announced an alternate reality series, Confederate, about slavery and Twitter didn't like it very much.

Game of Thrones is undoubtedly a huge success, perhaps more so than creators David Benioff and DB Weiss would have expected it to be and with the response to GoT’s season 7, which premiered a few days ago, is only a testament to the show’s high standing. However, the same cannot be said for the creators’ upcoming alternate reality venture named Confederate, which is already facing a lot of backlash for dealing with legal slavery.

Confederate is set in an alternate reality during the Third American Civil War where the southern states disaffiliated themselves successfully with a new nation where slavery continues to be legal. The idea of dealing with slavery that is legal has not gone well with people on social media, especially Twitter, who came out to bash the series even before it went on the floor.

Game of Thrones fans would remember that the show, which is set in a different universe, heavily featured the concept of slavery and banishing it was one of the main plot points of seasons 3-5. However, with this new series, people are not happy.
