It looks as though "Breaking Bad" is still with us as a topic of heated debate -- even among news anchors describing gruesome shootings.

Philadelphia Fox anchor Joyce Evans took to Twitter to compare a story her network would be broadcasting, about the shooting of six people, to the AMC drama, noting that the shooter was "breakin' bad."

One person has died and another is in critical condition after the shooting, according to other networks' coverage. Evans has claimed she was using the show as a way of drawing out the contrast between real events and fictional ones as portrayed on television.
