Owner of Breaking Bad house installs fence to combat fans' pizza throwing

You may recall from the halcyon days of Breaking Bad that Walter White, seized by familial frustration, threw a pizza onto the roof of his house.

The woman who lives at the house - and has been experiencing "pizza tossing" for four years since the show ended - told local Albuquerque news site KOB4 that they have made a decision to build a 6-foot high wrought iron fence around the famous home. Okay, now get this: Even after all this time, fans of the show are still stopping by the actual location of Walter White's Albuquerque, New Mexico home to toss pizzas of their own onto the roof.

"All day, non-stop, there's people up and down this road".

"We feel like we can't leave because when we do, something happens and that's ridiculous", said owner Joanne Quintana. "[Tourists] feel the need to tell us to close our garage, get out of the picture, you know - tell us what to do on our own property".


Mashable reports that fans reenacting the infamous pizza scene became so much of an issue that the show's creator, Vince Gilligan, called on fans to stop during a podcast.

"There is nothing amusing or original or cool about throwing pizza on this lady's roof", he said. A bit odd, and very wasteful (save the pizza!), but maybe it would be a passable practical joke if the house was merely a prop, or abandoned after filming ended.

Well now, according to KOB4 news, who have reported that as many as 100 people a week show up at the house, the owners of the house are finally building a fence to keep those unruly fans out.
