Walter White Gets REAL OBIT

SPOILER ALERT ... but if you don't know what happened by now, you probably live in a cave and don't have the Internet. Whatever, you've been warned ...

Walter White's death on "Breaking Bad" is apparently hitting some people harder than others ... 'cause the guy just got a real-life obituary in the newspaper where the show took place.

White would LOVE the obit -- which ran in the Albuquerque Journal -- 'cause it credits him as a co-founder of "Gray Matter" ... and we all know how passionate he was about getting his props for that.

As for how he died, the obit says White had a "long battle with lung cancer, and a gunshot wound."

The local paper says the obit was designed, written and paid for by a group of die-hard "Breaking Bad" fans.

One last thing -- In lieu of flowers, the obit says "donations can be made to a drug abuse prevention charity of your choice."

Nice ... bitch.

Get back to work!    

That is awesome, thank you for posting it. Best show ever! On a brighter note, "Better Call Saul" is supposed to be a prequel, and that means that Walter White is still alive and well somewhere in that show.

Actually, I had been able to avoid the finale information. Thanks for publishing "spoiler alert" underneath (and read after) the photo that had all the spoiler in it.

It is interesting that a fictional drug kingpin from Albuquerque knew the charges against him, but good hardworking people from New Mexico (in the real world) lost their jobs, had their companies stolen and handed over to vultures from Arizona, and STILL to this day have been denied their constitutional right of due process. Scary times here in the real world folks.

EFF YOU TMZ! Seriously. I've been trying nightly to catch up on Season 5 and you have this HUGE headline with the words Walter White OBIT! Thanks so much for ruining this for me! I've purposely NOT been scouring the internet, laying know, covering my eyes as soon as I see ANYTHING with the words breaking bad, but you really make it hard with your huge headline, too big and bright for me to scroll w/o reading, again, screw you. What happen to pre-empting with Spoiler Alert? Effing jerks.
