Fighting back against the hate. Anna Gunn is best known for her role of Skyler White on Breaking Bad, the suffering yet stern woman whose husband, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) became a criminal cooking meth — and ultimately ruined her family.

“I feel like I came to understand what it was, which was just the undercurrent of extreme sexism. The idea of gender roles being so deeply ingrained — it was shocking to me,” Gunn, 50, told the newspaper. “But I’m not sorry it happened, because it put me out on the other side going, ‘Huh, that’s really interesting.’ And I felt compelled to say something, not necessarily for myself, but for my daughters and other women. The vehemence of it, and the fact that it was just allowed — it was the id gone wild.”

So she tweeted: ‘Can somebody tell me where I can find Anna Gunn so I can kill her?’ Which to me sounds like a death threat.
