On Sunday's "Mad Men," Don (Jon Hamm) took his son Bobby to see "Planet Of The Apes," which hit theaters on April 3, 1968, one day before the episode took place.
Despite the film being 45 years old, viewers were amused to see the final minutes of the classic Charlton Heston movie spoiled on Sunday night, especially considering "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner is an outspoken spoiler hater.
"Mad Men" fans took to Twitter to poke fun at the 45-year-old spoiler.
I think when your TV show features the twist ending of a famous movie, you're not allowed to complain about spoilers anymore. #MadMen

Wait, so don't give away anything about "Mad Men," but Matthew Weiner gets to spoil "Planet of the Apes?" #StatuteOfLimitations

I know it's been said already, but: when we say Mad Men spoiled Planet of the Apes, is that a Mad Men spoiler or Planet of the Apes spoiler?

Do you think viewers have a right to be upset that the ending of "Planet Of The Apes" was spoiled? Sound off in the comments. "Mad Men" airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
Spoiler alert: Last night's "Mad Men" spoiled the ending of "Planet of the Apes". Those maniacs.
