“Walking Dead” fans are ruthless.
Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene Porter on the show, quit social media recently over death threats from fans who hate his character.
McDermitt called out cyberbullies before deleting Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
"Don’t send me death threats, because I will...I’m gonna report all that s--t to the cops. I’m just sick of it. You can hate Eugene, I don’t care. I’ll argue that you’re wrong, but 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. I gotta report that s--t," he said on Facebook Live.
"So just don’t be an a--hole. And then...stop complaining. Let’s just stop complaining about everything on the internet. OK. Seriously. Go spend time with your family or friends or loved ones. Just get off the internet. Is there anything else? Other than I love you? I do. I love you guys."
McDermitt, who joined “The Walking Dead” in 2014, has switched allegiances on the show recently after Negan killed Abraham and took Eugene prisoner, only to reward him once they got to the Sanctuary.
Can someone please tell these people it's just a TV show?
