Albuquerque Charity Holds Walter White’s Funeral

Looks like Albuquerque wasn't truly ready to say goodbye to their most famous fictional son until Saturday, when Albuquerque Healthcare for the Homeless threw Walter White a charity funeral, complete with hearse, coffin, and grave site. While some might argue that holding a funeral for a fictional character is simply a natural albeit insane step in the growth of intense fandoms, some local residents objected to the fact the fundraising event was held in an actual cemetery. On the other hand, the faux Breaking Bad funeral raised almost $17,000. We're sure Walter would be pleased to know that even in death, he was printing money.
