AMC’s Dish Dispute Tries To Co-Opt World Zombie Day

If you're getting this message, the zombie apocalypse has begun.

World Zombie Day will take over 50 cities this Saturday across the globe, including New York, Paris, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. Flesh-hungry walkers—and some enthusiastic human fans—will lurch their way though zombie walks all over the world.

Ahead of the walk, some more civic-minded zombies will descend upon Lafayette Park in Washington, D.C., protesting the absence of their show The Walking Dead on Dish Network, the satellite provider that cut off AMC Networks for its 14 million subscribers in June.

The Walking Dead premieres on Oct. 14. For the love of humanity, we hope Dish will give the zombies what they want—or we could be seeing man's last stand.
