Breaking Bad may be over, but fans continue to pay homage to Walter White by throwing pizza on the roof of his fictional home, all in thanks to this iconic scene:
While the tribute may be understandable to overzealous fans, not everyone thinks it’s particularly funny, specifcally the elderly couple who’ve lived in the house for the past 40 years. To put it lightly, they’re pissed, so much so that creator Vince Gilligan felt the need to step in.
In a recent interview on the Better Call Saul insider podcast, Gilligan said, “They’re throwing pizzas on roofs and stuff like that. Let me tell you: There is nothing funny or original or cool about throwing pizzas on this lady’s roof… It is just not funny. It’s been done before. You’re not the first.”
Ouch. True fans or not, stop terrorizing the elderly.
