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

The real-life owners of Walter White's house in "Breaking Bad" are sick and exhausted of fans tossing pizzas on their roof. One of the more memorable scenes involves White throwing a pizza on top of the roof of the residence, which fans have reenacted over the years.

As reported by the local KOB4 news station, the 6-foot-high iron fence will be completed shortly, and it will hopefully dissuade Breaking Bad fans from harassing the family any further.

"We don't want to gate ourselves in", homeowner Joanne Quintana told KOB4.

For most of us, Breaking Bad ended four years ago.

In the third season scene, White brings a pizza home for his family to feast on, but after his wife, who just discovered her husband cooks meth, locks him out, the frustrated breadwinner takes his anger out on the innocent pizza.

Frank Sandoval, who runs a Breaking Bad sightseeing tour, said the pizza tosses happens so frequently that he's shoed off fans and had to remove a number of pies off the roof himself.

Joanna also said that even if the tourists aren't armed with a pizza, they aren't much better: "They feel the need to tell us to close our garage, get out of the picture, you know - tell us what to do on our own property". Joanna Quintana's mother has to deal with people tossing pizzas at her house because they think it's amusing.

A neighbour said: "All day, non-stop, there's people up and down this road. They park in front of our driveway and block us in", a neighbor told KRQE, an Albuquerque news channel. "Hey guys, let's throw this pizza onto the roof of this house".
