Breaking Bad won big last night at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards ceremony, but did one of the cast members give a Nazi salute on stage?
In the television category, Breaking Bad continues its success following the Golden Globes as The Inquisitr has reported. The series –which ended its run in 2013 — took home the SAG award for outstanding dramatic cast and for star Bryan Cranston. “What a way to go out in style!” Cranston said as he accepted the cast award on Saturday.
Apparently one of the other cast members thought he was going out in style as well, when he appeared to do — or not do — the Heil Hitler salute to the audience.
In his acceptance speech, Cranston joked that the show had the “nicest bunch of white supremacist Nazis I have ever worked with… I swear to you that I would kill you all over again; I really would.” That comment apparently inspired one of the cast members (a tall, bearded dude on the right side of the stage in the embed below) to raise his arm Nazi style. Mediaite claims it has identified the actor from the appropriate IMDB page.
The actor who played Uncle Jack, the leader of the neo-Nazi gang who [spoiler alert] killed DEA Agents Hank Schrader and Steve Gomez on the show in the final season, also seems to raise his right arm, but that apparently was just to acknowledge the audience in attendance at the awards ceremony as Cranston spoke.
This is Brian Cranston’s second best-actor SAG award, which he adds to his recent Golden Globe win, and numerous Emmys he has received for his performance as a high school teacher who turns into a Meth chemist to support his family after he is diagnosed with cancer. The series was part of AMC’s powerhouse Sunday night lineup which includes The Walking Dead and the soon-to-end Mad Men.
Do you think an alleged Breaking Bad Nazi salute is offensive and in poor taste or just meant as harmless sarcasm?
