Vince Gilligan to ‘Breaking Bad’ fans: Stop throwing pizzas on house

The creator of “Breaking Bad” is not happy with some fans and their pizza stunts.

Overzealous and rude fans have been throwing pizzas on the house used in the show for Walter White’s family residence, Vince Gilligan said Tuesday during a podcast for his spin-off series, “Better Call Saul.”

The problem is, the Albuquerque, N.M., house is a real home lived in by a couple, whom Gilligan described as “the two nicest people in the world.”

In a Season 3 episode of “Breaking Bad,” Walter White, in frustration, throws a pizza on the top of his family’s home.

“There is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady’s roof,” Gilligan said during the podcast. “It’s been done before. You’re not the first.”


Gilligan added he was disappointed to learn people were not only throwing pizzas, but rude to the homeowners when they asked them to stay off the property.

“People live in these houses, and they are trying to go about their lives day in and day out like we all are,” he said. The homeowners are fine with respectful fans visiting and taking pictures from a distance, he added.

Actor Jonathan Banks, who plays Mike Ehrmantraut in both “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul,” echoed what Gilligan said during the same podcast. But, like the hard as nails enforcer he plays in the shows, he was much more direct.

“And if I catch you doing it, I will hunt you down,” Banks said. “It’s not cool.”
