Norman Reedus Was Reportedly Bitten By a Female Walking Dead Fan

This is how the zombie apocalypse begins.

We’ve known for some time that Norman Reedus, the badass actor behind The Walking Dead‘s beloved crossbow-slinging Daryl Dixon, has some crazy fans, but we didn’t know they were this crazy. reports that Reedus was apparently bitten by a female fan at Walker Stalker Convention in New Jersey over the weekend:

According to several reports, a female fan was standing in front of Spoil The Dead member Michael Bowman in the line for photo opportunities with Reedus and Michael Rooker at Walker Stalker Con NY/NJ around 2:50 pm when it was her turn to get a picture taken.

The woman approached the two actors and told Norman Reedus a story about how she likes to pretend that she’s married to him. After a moment, security ran in and restrained the woman, explaining that she was to be removed for biting the The Walking Dead star and saying “Um….ma’am. You just bit Norman Reedus.”

Michael Rooker was surprised by the interaction as well. In fact, the actor who played Merle Dixon reportedly exclaimed “What the f**k was that?!”

The alleged biter reportedly posted an Instagram photo with an apology after she was ejected from the event: “I don’t know what came over me”

​Reedus is a true gentlemen when hanging with his insane devoted fans — he’s licked ’em, saved their lives, and even collected their breast implants — but taking a bite at a convention seems a little bit much even for the rough-and-tumble Daryl Dixon. Let’s just hope that the Walking Dead producers don’t get any ideas for Daryl’s character when season 6 of the show returns next year.
