Despite the fact the Breaking Bad went off the air four years ago, fans of the series are rabid and want to get as close to Walter White in real life as they possibly can. As such, the house that Bryan Cranston and his fictional family lived in has become a popular destination for fans. The only problem is, someone actually lives there and the fans are getting in the way of them being able to live peacefully. Now, the owners are putting up a six-foot-tall fence in order to keep Breaking Bad fans out.
As reported by Kob 4 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Breaking Bad house is now going to be off limits for fans of the series, as a six-foot high wrought iron fence goes up, which is nearly completed. Still, even though construction is going on, fans are still trying to get around it just to take pictures with the home or, in some cases, throw a pizza on the roof. Joanne Quintana, whose mother owns the house, says that things have gotten so bad that they feel as though they can't ever leave.
"We feel like we can't leave because when we do, something happens and that's ridiculous."
One of the biggest issues plaguing Joanne Quintana at the house has been pizzas on the roof. In case you don't remember, in a 2010 episode of Breaking Bad, Walter White tossed a pizza on the roof of the house which became a pretty iconic image from the AMC series. In order to try and replicate that, fans will show up and toss pizzas on the roof, which is pretty undesirable if you're the owner of the house this is being done to. As Quintana tells it, they don't want to put up the fence, but their options are slim at this point.
"We don't want to gate ourselves in. We're the ones who's being locked up. We did nothing wrong."
Frank Sandoval, who runs Breaking Bad RV Tours in Albuquerque, has had to start policing the house himself, as fans have become increasingly more unruly and disrespectful. "We hear about it on a daily basis, so much so that we've gone up on the roof to pull pizza's down." It's not just pizzas. Joanne Quintana says that fans will steal landscaping rocks and will "tell us to close our garage, get out of the picture, you know, tell us what to do on our own property." So, the fence is going up.
Breaking Bad ran for 62 episodes on AMC from 2008 to 2013. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest shows ever produced and, as such, it has maintained a massive following in the years since the finale. Unfortunately for the homeowners of the Walter White house, that has caused far too many headaches and now, Breaking Bad fans aren't going to be able to see it at all.
