Walking Dead Actor Quits Social Media After Death Threats

Most people are aware that what is on television is just make up believe, unless it’s the news or reality TV. But even then, a lot of it is also not always true.

Walking Dead Actor Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene on the show, has to remind fans of the show that he’s an actual person who is just playing the role of Eugene.

Accordig to McDermitt, he has received so many death threats over how his character Eugene has been acting on the hit AMC show, that it has made him decide to quit all social media.

“Don’t send me death threats … I’m just sick of it,” he said in a video that a fan got their hands on. “You can hate Eugene, I don’t care. You can think whatever you want, but when you start saying you hope I die, I don’t know if you’re talking about Josh or Eugene.”

Eugene had been the nerdy science teacher who was cowardly but not mean spirited throughout the show. In recent episodes his character has changed, as he decided to stay on the evil side and protect Negan in order to save himself in the zombie Apocalypse.

McDermitt had one more thing to say to these angry fans.

“Stop complaining about everything on the internet,” he said. “Just go spend time with your family or friends or loved ones. Just get off the internet.”
