‘Breaking Bad’ Fans Take Out Walter White Obit in New Mexico Paper

walter white obit

A group of devoted “Breaking Bad” fans took out an obituary in the Albuquerque Journal to mourn the loss of the main character of Walter White … who is, of course, a fictional character.

According to the paper, David Layman and members of the Facebook group “Unofficial Breaking Bad Fan Tour” placed the obit to honor the main character of “Breaking Bad.” The obit ran on A4 of today’s paper.

Layman told the Journal, “I’ve been a humongous ‘Breaking Bad’ fan since the beginning. I was actually in the pilot, and putting the obit in the paper was fitting, because the series was based in Albuquerque and it provides some of us some closure.”

    How about another series about the same theme only from the perspective of another person. Make jesse the star and show his internal dialog and perspective on the same line of situations. Create new situations for the benefit of freshness , but use some of the major ones from the old series for different treatment. Could be interesting.

    According to Breaking Bad wiki, Walter White died on September 7, 2011 (http://breakingbad.wikia.com/wiki/Walter_White) Why was his obit so late?

    What a ridiculous frame of logic. the series ended less than a week ago, so I think new fans deserve a bit of a safe guard against spoilers. especially when precautions like *spoiler alert* are so easy to squeeze at the title or very least beginning of the article.

    • Ok, so, in the year 2525 we will let you know how the show ends?? Please. Dude, if you expect everyone to wait until YOU have seen it… really… you think too highly of yourself.

    • Kelly says:

      If this is a “spoiler” then you clearly are not a real fan of the show. Real fans won’t wait almost a week to watch a series finale.

    Who honestly thought he was going to live

  6. Cheryl says:

    RIP Walter

  7. Joe Blow says:

    Yeah, I agree with the other comment. Thanks for putting the season end spoiler right in the fucking headline, also making it appear that way in my twitter feed, assholes!

  8. Wendy says:

    OK so I’ve been catching up on Netflix and have managed to avoid spoilers ALL WEEK up until today… and you put this in the SUBJECT LINE of an email? Boo. :(

    Awwwwww…. Very sad what happened to this high school chemistry teacher.
