The Walking Dead's entire purpose is to be shocking and paint a gritty image of a world overrun by the living dead, meaning that in a show which constantly pushes boundaries, there are going to be times when controversy strikes. One of the greatest aspects from the recent wave of blockbuster TV series' is that Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead and many more aren't afraid to explore taboo subjects, get audiences talking, and spark some drama away from the screens. Unlike a standard zombie film where characters spend more time dying than being developed, The Walking Dead has plenty of time to explore hard-hitting issues and properly delve into characters' mindsets, while its popularity continues to soar to new heights because of that. But as the show has grown, more controversy has seeped in through the cracks, with several incidents tarnishing the Walking Dead brand, while other situations saw the very future of the show hanging in the balance. While disruptions and chaos are to be expected from any major production, The Walking Dead has had more than its fair share of incidents, so let's take a look at 10 occasions the show became the focal point of controversy, on-screen and away from it.
