‘Better Call Saul’ Fans Fully Support Actor Bob Odenkirk’s Right to an Instagram Foot Fetish

Better Call Saul? More like, “Paging Dr. Freud!” The internet got all in a tizzy after actor Bob Odenkirk (aka Saul Goodman, aka Jimmy McGill) recently followed @perfect_feet_in_sexy_shoes on Instagram.

The follow was caught by a social media user, and was pretty obvious given that Odenkirk only follows 28 accounts total.

The same day the internet noticed his alleged foot fetish, Odenkirk unfollowed the account. But that didn’t stop speculation from running rampant. For its part, the PR machine behind the Breaking Bad spinoff tiptoed around the follow/unfollow with its own foot joke.

“Stay on your toes, the penultimate episode of #BetterCallSaul premieres tomorrow,” it wrote in a tweet.

Odenkirk’s fans rallied behind the actor, who survived what could have been a fatal heart attack in July 2021 while on set filming the final season of Better Call Saul.

“bob odenkirk suffered a near death experience and now is living life to the fullest by following a fetish account on main,” one fan opined. “this is the triumph of the human spirit.”

“how dare you freaks harass bob odenkirk into unfollowing the foot fetish account,” another fan said in Odenkirk’s defense. “he did nothing wrong. he deserves some sexy shoes and feet after all he’s done for us.”

“The two biggest outpourings of support for Bob Odenkirk have been 1) when he had his heart attack and 2) when the internet forced him into unfollowing a foot pic account and I hope that dichotomy brings a smile to his face,” another Twitter user noted.

So the man enjoys some pretty feet. Who are we to judge? As far as sins go, it pales in comparison to Saul Goodman’s misdeeds.
