In Game of Thrones, there were a number of noteworthy antagonists. Whether it was the ruthless Night King, the savage Ramsey Bolton, or the pure evil Cersei Lannister, we could not help but detest them all. But one character in particular made us genuinely hate him. Jack Gleeson played Joffrey Baratheon, one of the most notorious characters on the show. Even Tom Glynn-Carney hates Aegon II’s comparisons with him.

I think he’s way more layered.”

Joffrey Baratheon was once voted the most hated character in TV history

A well-known entertainment website recently conducted a survey to find out which TV character viewers believed was the worst. Surprisingly, Joffrey Baratheon from Game of Thrones topped the list despite having just four seasons. His nasty, vicious, and conceited demeanor garnered over 6500 votes. In the Game of Thrones fanbase, his passing in Season 4 Episode 2 was arguably one of the most widely celebrated deaths.
