It’s just a show

  • Actress, Anna Gunn, who plays Shyler White on Breaking Bad, received death threats because of what his character did on the television show forcing her to take security measures.
  • Actor, Brenock O’Connor, who plays a Olly on the Game of Thrones, get death threats because his character his responsible for the death of another character, John Snow.
  • Actor, Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene Porter on The Walking Dead, pulled his accounts down from Twitter and Instagram after getting an overwhelming of harassment and death threats.

It baffles me when I hear about actors and actresses getting harassed and receiving death threats for something the character they are playing in a show did. Actors and the character they play are two very different people and one of these “people” is make believe.  This much should be obvious, but many don’t know that for some disturbing reason.

Guess what? It’s just a show. Watch and enjoy it. Don’t live it.
