If you’re a fan of family pizza parties, this story might make you sad. Apparently teenagers and fans of “Breaking Bad” find it hilarious to throw full pizzas atop the residence used to house the fiction family of Walter White. The problem has gotten so out of control, that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and star Jonathan Banks have made pleas for people to stop throwing pies on the rooftop.
Why? Because an Albuquerque family still lives there.
The homeowners have tried to have a sense of humor about the situation, believing it would eventually die down since the show’s been off the air. Instead it’s only become worse and Joanne Quintana, whose mother owns the property, has reached her breaking point.
“We feel like we can’t leave because when we, do something happens and that’s ridiculous,” she told KOB4. Later she added, “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.”
Back in March, homeowner Fran Padilla spoke with NPR about fans trying to re-create the infamous scene where Walter White throws a pizza atop the roof out of frustration.
“We’ve had pizzas on our roof. We’ve had pizzas on our driveway; pizzas until we’re sick of looking at pizzas,” Padilla told NPR.

Somehow Gilligan explicitly instructing fans not to be jerks and Banks saying he’ll “hunt down” these people wasn’t enough to stop them. So now the family is constructing a wall around their premises. One messy weekend caused the family to say enough was enough, believing the only solution was a six-foot iron wrought fence to keep out fanatic intruders.
“We don’t want to gate ourselves in,” Quintana said to KOB4. “We’re the ones who’s being locked up. We did nothing wrong.”
While that is a heartbreaking sentiment, it’s important to note the underlying tragedy of this story—who are all these peons wasting good pizza? These are the days I feel like I’ll never understand this country.
