Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is not happy with a small group of fans who are stepping out of line at the real house that belonged to Walter White in the AMC drama.
Gilligan kicked off the newest episode of the Inside Better Call Saul podcast with a message to “fans” who are overstepping boundaries when they visit the Walter White house that is occupied by a real couple in an Albuquerque, New Mexico neighborhood.
“Lately, we’re hearing from the owner that folks are wandering on to her property, and are being rude to her when she comes out and basically says, ‘You’re on my property,'” said Gilligan. “They are throwing pizzas on roofs and stuff like that. Let me tell you, there is nothing original or funny or cool about throwing a pizza on this lady’s roof. It is just not funny. It’s been done before. You are not the first.”
Fans are supposedly throwing the pizzas on the roof to re-enact this memorable scene from Breaking Bad season 3 when Walter does that exact thing:
The actor who plays Mike on Saul and Bad, Jonathan Banks, was a part of the new Inside Better Call Saul podcast and backed up Gilligan. “If I catch you doing it, I will hunt you down,” he told listeners.
Gilligan notes on the podcast that he doesn’t consider these type of people violating the homeowner’s property real “fans” if they overstep boundaries like this, and encouraged anyone who caught someone messing with the house to write down their license plate number. He also spoke highly of the homeowner, describing her as one of the nicest people he knows.
This writer has been to the Walter White house three times and didn’t step foot on the property once.

As Banks pointed out on the podcast, who would want to waste perfectly good pizza anyway?
