On Sunday, Walter White—the fictional protagonist of AMC's critically acclaimed drama Breaking Bad—was laid to rest in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Like, in a real cemetery where real bodies are buried.
A funeral procession through the town was lead by a hearse and White's infamous RV/mobile meth lab before an empty casket was lowered into a makeshift grave. Tourists/Breaking Bad fanatics could purchase dirt to throw across the empty coffin. The event raised $17,000 for charity, but still managed to piss off the locals.
They're upset that their place of mourning is being turned into a spectacle. Some are worried that the headstone will turn the place into a tourist trap.
It was a fitting end for loyal fans, but for families with loved ones laid to rest there, it hits too close to home.
