'Breaking Bad' house owners put up fence to stop pizza throwing

Breaking Bad fence

The family has become so frustrated with the constant stream of mischievous fans that they've made a decision to erect a "6-foot wrought iron fence" around their home in order to deter would-be pizza-tossers, according to NBC.

At least, tourists making a pilgrimage to Albuquerque, NM and visiting the house in which unexpected drug mastermind Walter White once lived will no longer be able to snap the photos they seek - and will probably also have limited opportunities to toss pizzas onto the unassuming abode's roof, as was famously done on the show. Breaking Bad fans have never forgotten the scene, a laugh-out-loud amusing moment amidst a dark and intense television show about selling meth.

Quintana said fans of the show come to visit the house in droves and have disrupted the property by stealing rocks as souvenirs and tossing pizza on the roof to recreate a memorable outburst from the show's main character portrayed by Bryan Cranston.

Speaking to KOB4, the owner's daughter Joanna Quinta said: "We feel like we can't leave because when we, do something happens and that's ridiculous". "They park in front of our driveway and block us in", one said. Over the first Balloon Fiesta weekend, she estimates it climbed into the hundreds. In the space of fifteen minutes, the news station counted at least ten tourists vying for pictures of the property. They can get nasty.

In its five-season run that ended in 2013, Breaking Bad grew from obscure oddity to one of the most celebrated, acclaimed television series of the Peak TV era.
