Kurt Sutter Apologizes After 'Sons of Anarchy' Ending Is Spoiled

The show's companion book 'Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector's Edition' was shipped out to fans early, revealing who dies and who survives at the end of the story.

AceShowbiz - "Sons of Anarchy" loyal fans who have been tuning into the show for seven years may be upset that the ending is leaked before the series finale next week. It's all due to the early arrival of a companion book called "Sons of Anarchy: The Official Collector's Edition", which was supposed to be available only after the final episode airs.

The book was shipped out by distributors to book outlets and fans earlier than expected, revealing who lives and who dies at the end of the story. A spokesman for Time Home Entertainment Inc., the book's publisher, explains to Variety, "As the publisher, we have a very strict embargo in place for the on-sale date of Wednesday, December 10, 2014. We have learned that a wholesaler has broken the embargo and released a limited quantity of books in advance of the on-sale date. While extremely disappointed, we are very proud of the book, which is a wonderful tribute to the show."

Series creator Kurt Sutter isn't happy either after learning about this. He responds with a lengthy statement posted on Twitter, "It has been brought to my attention that our SOA Collector's Edition Book has been sent out a week early by some distributors and book outlets. This book contains details about the final episode of the series. This, my friends is a storyteller's worst nightmare. I wanted this book to be a compliment to the show. It contains personal messages and photos from the cast, in-depth behind the scenes information and detailed breakdown of episodes. It's a smart, well-conceived book that I was very excited for the fans to have. AFTER the motherf***ing finale."

He continues, "There are a thousand f***ing people I can blame. And I assure you, by the time I am done, my f***ing basket will be filled with heads of incompetent c***s. But as far as the fans go, the burden is on me. I f***ed up. It was my idea for the book, so ultimately, I am to blame. So if you received a book, I apologize. I ask that you not share your wrath or pain or opinion in social media so as to not spoil the experience of others. There is no excuse for utter ineptitude. It pains me that this will be the parting memory of some fans. I hope you all tune in for the finale. It plays much better than it reads."

"Sons of Anarchy" series finale airs Tuesday, December 9 at 10/9c on FX.
