Gun-toting baddies in president masks are certainly not new to American movies and TV shows but HBO has recently had to defend its use of Barack Obama masks in True Blood.
A pick-up truck bearing four thugs in Obama masks made an appearance in a recent episode of True Blood and HBO has had to rule out any political motive behind it.
Coming just a few weeks after it was made known that a George Bush mask was used in an episode of Game of Thrones’ first season, the network has denied that the two are linked.
“It’s a complete and utter coincidence and one show has nothing to do with the other,” HBO said.
They say there was absolutely no political or secret motive behind the use of either prop.
