Is that some kind of double standard for the Walking Dead fans?
Of course they'll cross the line. The original comics series has crossed so many, it's hard to even think of another line it could cross!
He's not getting a free pass... not really. Robert Kirkman seems to have gotten a lot of hate mail over the years for his comic, judging by his letters column at the end of each issue. He's apparently been called out for being a racist (against black, hispanic, and amusingly enough white people), misogynist, and religion-basher... homophobe will probably follow once he's killed off the only gay couple in the comics.
