Draco may be an obnoxious and entitled little punk, but that was cold.

Draco Malfoy vs Joffrey is like this comparison between Voldemort and Sauron

In Chiwi's defense, he hasn't read book 2. Up until he has Ilyn Payne kill Ned, Joffrey=Draco isn't quite comparing apples to orange-shaped globs of human filth.

yeah, I mean even so far what joffrey has done probably eclipses what draco did in 7 books in terms of awfulness. i'm fairly certain draco never actually kills anyone, and he turns out to be a more sympathetic character than expected in the 7th book. it's just the first thing that comes into my mind when I see an annoying, entitled, and evil little blonde kid.

"Annoying" will be a less and less accurate adjective as time goes on. Let me put it this way: Draco is an obnoxious little punk, but if Voldemort had suspected him of treason and killed him, you would have felt bad. By the end of book 3, the reader is ready to actively cheer Joffrey's death and would prefer that it be unpleasant.
