Earlier last week we reported about a petition directed at AMC and showrunner Scott Gimple which at the time had 30,000 signatures. The petition now has just over 50,000!
But fans of Beth haven't stopped at signing petitions, fans are currently sending spoons to The Walking Dead
producers. Why you might ask? Well it turns out to be a tribute to Beth.
In season 4, episode 12, Beth found a Washington D.C. souvenir spoon when her and Daryl came across a country club.
