So the latest Game of Thrones episode was aired and the main highlight was a Starbucks coffee cup which was forgotten at the set! And we’re sad to report that the Starbucks cup that wound up in an episode of Game of Thrones is there no longer, it has now been removed from the footage.

HBO quietly updated the most recent episode of Game of Thrones to digitally remove a coffee cup that accidentally made its way into a scene, setting the internet on fire with a seemingly endless stream of memes in the process.
Well, it’s true they’ve got bigger problems, like this plane…

Some actually claimed to have found the real culprit and we’re laughing way too hard!

And then came the final word, from Starbucks themselves!
TBH we're surprised she didn't order a Dragon Drink.
