For those who haven't heard, in the final episode of the first season it appears as though HBO used a prop head of George W. Bush and put it on a spike.

Now, they have announced that DVD shipments have been stopped so that the head can be edited out of the background. Those of us who purchased the blu-ray now have a cool collector's item on our hands! Not that it's rare or anything, because I'm sure they've sold millions of these already. But it's still pretty awesome because the "uncut" version will soon be off the market forever.

Official Statement from HBO:

"We were deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste. We made this clear to the executive producers of the series who apologized immediately for this careless mistake. We condemn it in the strongest possible terms and have halted all future shipments of the DVDs, removed it from our digital platforms and will edit the scene for all future airings on any distribution domestic or international."

I really don't see why this is such a big deal. It looks like him yes, but it's not actually a copy of him.

I agree with you. The media is over-reacting once again, people need to lighten up and not be offended by every little thing. I was actually very surprised that HBO is taking this so seriously.

You can't even stream Episode 10 on Amazon: Fire and Blood

now this is strange,HBO released the copies on blu ray and dvd worldwide and not knowing that there was a prop head of George w.bush head on a spike in the episode,now the people at HBO must be kicking themselves on watching the process of making a box set on to the digital format Blu ray and DVD,and what about the commentaries on that episode does the cast and crew spotted the ex president's head on the spike..hahahaha

If they edit in obama... is it a hate/race crime?

edit: having now seen the head... I have to wonder why they even said anything. No typical viewer would have said wow... That is obviously george bush's head.
