Norman Reedus has provoked the ire of The Walking Dead fans after giving away a major spoiler on social media.

The star, who plays Daryl Dixon on the long-running AMC series, had posted tributes to his co-star Ryan Hurst on Instagram and Twitter

*Spoiler warning*

In the finale of The Walking Dead’s tenth season, which aired just a day before Reedus’s posts, Dixon finally kills Beta, the nefarious character played by Hurst.

The killing was undoubtedly the biggest moment in a dramatic finale that had been delayed for months as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. 

On Instagram, Reedus posted still photos of Daryl approaching Beta with two daggers in hand, and of Beto suffering his fatal injury, along with the caption: “This dude.” 

Fans who had yet to see the episode complained that Reedus had given away one of the series’ big twists.

“Thanks for the spoilers I guess,” wrote one fan in response.

“Dammit.. why did I swipe through these!!!” remarked one Instagram user, referring to the sequence of three increasingly spoiler-filled pictures.

"SPOILERRRRRRRRRR!!!" wrote someone else.

However, other commenters were more forgiving, with most having already watched the episode. 

“Great ending for Beta and don’t worry about spoiling it Norman,” wrote one fan. “I have been ready for ages to watch TWD finale and would have cancelled anything to watch on the night.”
