And Now, One Philly Anchor’s Tasteless Breaking Bad Tweet


breaking bad characters

Did you catch the finale of Breaking Bad? That ain’t nothing. A shooting in Southwest Philadelphia left five injured and one dead last Sunday.

Though the two things seem as unrelated as politicians and compromise, the connection was forced by Fox 29 Philly anchor Joyce Evans on Twitter over the weekend, and critics are accusing her of everything from bad taste to outright famewhoring.

So, that exists.

Twitter users can hardly believe it, either.

But believe it or not, the story actually gets better. Instead of an apology, Evans opted for a bolder strategy: The Double-Down.

But Joyce, don’t you think that was a little insensitive?

Well, okay then. So long as we know where we stand.

Fox probably isn’t thrilled about the tweet, either. Not because six people were shot, but because AMC owns the rights to Breaking Bad.
