‘Breaking Bad’ Star Spotted at Portland’s New Controversial Bar
Actor Aaron Paul, famous for his portrayal of Jesse Pinkman on AMC’s smash hit “Breaking Bad” spent the weekend in Portland, and it looks like he had a great time! We follow him on Instagram, and it looked like he really enjoyed visiting Maine’s biggest city.
Opium, a new establishment in the Old Port that found itself embroiled in controversy last week, also hosted Paul.
Community activists and bloggers online claimed last week that the name “Opium” was offensive, given the current drug epidemic in Maine. Others pointed to the statement of the establishment’s owner, Raymond Brunyanszki.
“We didn’t call our bar herioin or opiate. We named it after a flower.”
Did Paul know about the controversy surrounding the name of this new bar in Portland? We’re not sure, but we can guess that if Jesse Pinkman was in town, he’d probably visit!
