Sons of Anarchy Creator Kurt Sutter Talks the Frank Darabont Walking Dead Controversy
And the the controversy behind Frank Darabont's firing from the AMC series "The Walking Dead" continues to be uglier than any zombie featured on the series. This time "Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter took to Twitter to lay down some truly choice words on the situation.
"No one else wants to fucking say it, but the greed of Mad Men is killing the other two best shows on TV - Breaking Bad and Walking Dead," says Sutter. "Why Darabont got fired - [Mad Men showrunner Matthew] Weiner. He held AMC hostage, broke their bank, budgets were slashed, shit rolled down hill onto Gilligan and Frank. Darabont reacted strongly to slashed budgets. He made mistakes, he was fired. No creative in town will trust AMC to back up their artists. I don't know MW, got no beef with him. Just hate that Darabont is being demonized. No one has the balls to tell the truth. [Mad Men] gutted AMC."
