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

Everyone has their breaking point, and it seems like the owners of the famous Breaking Bad house where Walter White resided have finally reached theirs.

Joanne Quintana, whose mother owns the house that served as a setting for the AMC series, chose to install a 6-foot high wrought iron fence outside the home after years of vandalism, trespassing and rude behavior from fans of the show.

Why pizza, I hear you cry?

Quintana told KOB 4 the situation has been ridiculous, with them feeling they can't even leave the home unattended because if they do, something happens. Fans certainly haven't forgotten and the house in New Mexico used as the White's family home in the series, is now regularly targeted with pizzas by fans of the show.

"All day, non-stop, there's people up and down this road. They park in front of our driveway and block us in", one said.

The Quintanas, after all, have to live there, and while it may be neat to have your home be a part of TV history, not everyone always thinks of the day-to-day practicalities and hassles.

And Frank Sandoval, who runs the Breaking Bad RV Tours, says he completely understands.

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 original, or amusing, or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady's roof", Gilligan said. What you see below was the first take they shot-Bryan Cranston nails it.
