With sudden and unexpected attacks happening all over America, right now is a scary time to be anywhere out in public. Especially if you're a celebrity. You never know when someone might pull an unwanted surprise. That recently happened to The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus at a recent fan event. But he seems to be taking it all in stride.
There is no doubt that some fans take their love of any given franchise a little too seriously. A woman attending the Walker Stalker Con in New Jersey definitely crossed the line. She apparently forgot she was a living human being. Under the spell of whatever makes the zombies walk on the popular AMC horror series, this living dead lady decided to take her love of all things Daryl Dixon to the next level in a move that would have fans crying had it actually happened on the show.
The unnamed woman stepped up beside Norman Reedus during a photo op. Though the fan tried hard to bite the actor, no harm came to Daryl Dixon. After all, he's had plenty of years practice dodging zombies. Norman Reedus decided not to press charges. But the woman was immediately thrown out of Walker Stalker Con. And she has been banned for life. Here's what the fan in question had to say in a private Instagram post.

"Finally meet the love of my life, and get banned from the rest of the CON and lose two more $100 photo ops with him because I lost my mind ... got so excited standing beside him ... & just turned my head and bit him! I don't know what came over me. It wasn't my intention to hurt him. I'm sorry Norman!"
Norman Reedus certainly handled the incident with a lot of class, going on to prove just why so many fans love him in the first place. In response, he posted a very funny reaction photo on his official Instagram. As you can see, he's now having to ask anyone else who pays for a photo op to abide by one rule. Should be easy enough, right?
"Um please don't."
