Fence goes up around home used in 'Breaking Bad'

You may recall from the halcyon days of Breaking Bad that Walter White, seized by familial frustration, threw a pizza onto the roof of his house.

The owners of Walt's house from the hit TV show Breaking Bad have had to install a fence to stop people from throwing pizzas on their roof. The AMC series, created by Vince Gilligan, told the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a sad-sack high school teacher who, after a cancer diagnosis, becomes an unlikely crystal meth kingpin.The series collected Emmy Awards, while also turning Cranston into a movie star for the first time in his 50s. On countless occasions, visitors have taken their fandom to the next level - by throwing their own pizzas onto the roof.

Problem is, the house isn't just a set.

'We feel like we can't leave because when we do, something happens and that's ridiculous, ' Quintana told KOB4. Therefore, Breaking Bad didn't actually become a huge hit until near the end of its run.

To keep people away from the Albuquerque, New Mexico home, Joanne Quintana says they have chose to install a six-foot high wrought iron fence around the perimeter.

"There is nothing amusing or original or cool about throwing pizza on this lady's roof", he said on a podcast for the show's spinoff, "Better Call Saul". "You're not the first".

That fence should be completed soon, but Quintana said people have already tried to climb around the construction to get a picture.

The Quintana's, it seems, have had enough of those shenanigans. Residents and tourists have been trashing the Quintanas on an online forum since 2014.
