ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The eulogy drew cheers but not everybody was happy about a mock funeral for "Breaking Bad" character Walter White drew more than 200 pretend-mourners to an Albuquerque-area cemetery.
Relatives of several people buried at Sunset Memorial Park said they thought it was disrespectful and inappropriate to hold the mock funeral Saturday at a real cemetery.
The show filmed in Albuquerque recently ended its run after five seasons. White, a fictional chemistry teacher who became a drug kingpin, died in the last episode.
The funeral raised money through donations for a program that helps the homeless, and cemetery manager Vaughn Hendren says it agreed to allow the funeral only after being assured the mock headstone can be removed if it becomes an attraction.
