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

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.”
