‘Breaking Bad’ Actor Aaron Paul’s Emmy Speech Broke His Wife’s Website
Aaron Paul likes breaking things. The Breaking Bad actor just caused his wife’s website to break by mentioning it in his heartfelt Emmy speech.
As Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman in the gritty drama, accepted his third Emmy award for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series he emotionally thanked his wife, Lauren Parsekian, and praised the amazing work she has done.
“…And to my wife, my God, thank you for marrying me,” Paul said. “Thank you for dedicating your life to spread kindness across the world. We all appreciate it. If you guys don’t know what she does, look up ‘Kind Campaign.’ Do yourself and your children a favor: Kind Campaign.”
The world listened to the star. The site crashed following the speech.
The Kind Campaign is a nonprofit anti-bullying campaign focused on girls. Founded by Parsekian in 2009, It seeks to prevent girl-on-girl abuse through education and awareness.
