Owner of ’Breaking Bad’ house builds fence to stop fans from throwing pizzas on the roof

Critically acclaimed crime-drama series “Breaking Bad” concluded in 2013 after five thrilling seasons, but continues to be popular among its massive cult following.
The show featured several of the most intense and memorable moments on television, but perhaps non-more than Walter White’s (played by Bryan Cranston) infamous “pizza-tossing” scene in Season 3.
Seven years after the episode aired, the real owners of the house where the pie was thrown revealed that overzealous fans have continued to throw the take-out staple on the roof of their home.
The recurring issue has become so problematic that owners are now compelled to install a 6-foot-high wrought-iron fence in their property in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
According to KOB 4 News, as relayed by The Telegraph, the seemingly extreme measure was needed to prevent further trespassing and re-creating the famous scene.
“We feel like we can’t leave because when we do something happens. And that’s ridiculous,” Joanne Quintana, one of the residents of the house, said.
Due to the show’s popularity, the Quintana home has became a tourist destination of some sort, with the town organizing tours to all the locations used in the series. /ra
