Chandler Riggs Rips Jokes About Sudden 'The Walking Dead' Exit

Chandler Riggs is having a little fun with Carl Grimes' unexpected exit from The Walking Dead.

The actor who has played the apocalypse's favorite child since AMC launched the zombie drama in 2010 is set to have his last episode air in the Mid-Season Eight premiere later this month. In preparation for the sendoff, Riggs took to Twitter to make a few jokes about his character's sudden death.

For example, he may even be throwing a little shade at the writers who cost him a job with one tweet: "when [you] spend like 3 years in the apocalypse but die bc you tripped and fell."

The tweet is part of a thread, all in response to an image which came from a new trailer for The Walking Dead's coming episodes. In it, Carl's father Rick and his mother figure Michonne are carrying him away from the flames in Alexandria. He proceeded to have a field day by memeing the photo in the form of Twitter responses to himself.

The first tweet came from an image on January 11. "[Shaking my head,] they cut the part where i was playing Through the Fire and Flames on Guitar Hero," Riggs wrote. When the new trailer dropped, he dug up the old tweet and started with the new image: "Tired [as f---] from getting 100% on expert."

It didn't stop there, though. The video game references were aplenty.

"When you’re god awful at PUBG and [your] squad has to keep reviving you," Riggs wrote, before following up with, "When Ableton won't stop crashing no matter what computer you export the project on but you don't wanna fall to the depts of the fl studio." It's a reference to his working on new music, which is turning out to be a fruitful career for the young actor.


Riggs entire Twitter feed might be worth a scroll at this point, as the actor's sense of humor is starting to shine as his time on The Walking Dead comes to a close.

The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its eighth season on February 25, 2018, marking Riggs final episode on the series. Fear the Walking Dead will debut its fourth season after The Walking Dead concludes its eighth, at 10 pm ET on April 15.
