The protestor is addressing a group of smallfolk on the streets of King's Landing. He says that the city is foul with corruption and blames Joffrey Baratheon as the product of incest between Queen Cersei and her brother Jaime Lannister. He also describes Joffrey as a puppet king to Tyrion Lannister, whom he refers as a "twisted demon monkey", causing his audience to erupt in laughter.[1]

In the booksEdit

In A Song of Ice and Fire, a number of individuals, particularly "begging brothers" - the lowest among the clergy of the Faith of the Seven - begin to speak out against King Joffrey, Queen Cersei and Tyrion, incensed by Stannis' letter and the growing famine in King's Landing due to House Tyrell closing off the Roseroad - through which most foodstuffs reach the capital. These men also speak out against the leadership of the Faith of the Seven - both the High Septon and the Most Devout -, accusing them of corruption and fornication.
