TELL AMC NOT TO SUCCUMB TO THE PRESSURES OF LIMITING VIOLENCE & GORE ON THE WALKING DEAD

This petition was created to voice the opinions of The Walking Dead fans about limiting the level of violence and gore AMC will permit following the outrage of some regarding the Season 7 premiere. As we all know, the Season 7 premiere was by far the most gruesome of any episode aired to date. However, the violence and gore was too much for some, and AMC has received a lot of backlash for it, and have already appeared to be succumbing to the pressures of parties such as the Parents Television Council [PTC], who feel that AMC should refrain from showing extreme violence, and have suggested that they IMPLY the violence instead. Let's tell AMC to allow the writers and Scott Gimple to stay as true to TWD comics as possible with its violence and gore. It IS a zombie apocalypse based series afterall.
To Whom It May Concern At AMC Networks,
Countless fans of The Walking Dead comics have waited a long time to watch the comics unfold on screen, and limiting the violence and gore because of a few naysayers is NOT fair. While we thank you for being one of the very few networks to have been interested in picking up Robert Kirkman's idea of turning the comics into a series, limiting the series on an already limited network will undeniably turn off MANY of the millions of fans of the show, including myself. Parties such as the PTC have no right to complain about the level of violence on a show that has clearly been given a "TVMA" rating. If parents are allowing young children to watch a gorey, violent show that was meant for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY, that is THEIR choice as a parent, and us fans should not have to suffer the consequences of their actions. Also, anyone who has a low tolerance for gore and violence should not be allowed to dictate what direction the show takes from here, especially since they are the MINORITY.
DON'T DO IT AMC. AS MUCH AS I LOVE THE SHOW, AND AS A LOYAL FAN FROM DAY ONE, I WILL NO LONGER SUPPORT THE SHOW IF I CONTINUE TO WATCH SCENES SUCH AS THE DEATH SCENE BETWEEN DARYL AND JOEY, BE LIMITED TO "IMPLIED VIOLENCE". I noticed, and I'm sure many other fans did as well. Us devoted fans have made the show as successful as it is, and we have earned the right to watch The Walking Dead unfold the way it was meant to. I will be keeping a close eye on future episodes. Don't let us down.
