Breaking Bad Homeowners Put Up Fence To Deal With Annoying Fans

The house in Albuquerque's Northeast Heights neighborhood was the fictional home for Walter White, the show's central character.

The family that owns the house that the White family lived in on AMC's Breaking Bad has chose to build a fence around their home.

However, the owners of the house have erected a 6-foot wrought iron fence to keep them out.

Joanne Quintana, whose mother owns the house, tells the news station, "We feel like we can't leave because when we, do something happens".


Quintana says she can't count how many Breaking Bad fans turn up outside the house every week. Even now, four years after the Breaking Bad series finale, fans regularly toss pizzas onto the house's roof, steal landscaping rocks from the yard as souvenirs, and even ask the residents to close their garage or move out of the way so they can take photos.

'We don't want to gate ourselves in, ' she told the news channel.

Incidentally, Weckiai Rannila, the renter of a University of New Mexico apartment that was the on-screen home of Breaking Bad Emmy victor Aaron Paul's Jessie Pinkman, tells the station she also has her share of sometimes "annoying" selfie-seeking fans. The infamous pizza-throwing scene became such an issue for the homeowners that the show's creator, Vince Gilligan, begged fans in 2015 to stop recreating the scene. "They park in front of our driveway and block us in", a neighbor told KRQE, an Albuquerque news channel.

"There is nothing original or amusing or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady's roof", Gilligan said at the time. "You're not the first".
