Walking Dead's Norman Reedus' Request To Fans: 'Do Not Bite Me'

  • by: Alan Duke

Daryl Dixon has avoided being bitten for six seasons of "The Walking Dead," but the actor who plays the motorcycle-riding hero can't make the same claim. An exuberant fan chomped on Reedus while standing in a photo line at New Jersey's Walker Stalker Convention.

The woman apologized in an Instagram post, saying: "I lost my mind... got so excited standing beside him... and 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!"

While she said she was banned from future conventions, Reedus showed a sense of humor in his response. He posted an Instagram photo of Daryl wearing a shirt that says "Do Not Bite Me."

Um please don't 💃🏿
