If you are a Game of Thrones fan, odds are that you were left disappointed by the series' final season. To set the record straight, a YouTube channel named Eating Things With Famous People created a video by using artificial intelligence software to change one of the characters speeches into a colorful apology for the series’ polarizing ending.

There have even been instances where Deepfake has been used to create fake revenge porn
