Negan is the vilest villain The Walking Dead has ever shown, which is why there are scores of fans who want nothing more than to see him die at the end of Season 8. For any Negan haters out there who feel this way, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has a message he wants to put out there, and it's both NSFW and hilarious:

One middle finger is offensive enough, but two? That's how folks know Jeffrey Dean Morgan doesn't give a damn what folks think of Negan, and he's got no beef with keeping his character's mean streak rolling until The Walking Dead puts his character out to greener pastures. Of course, Morgan isn't quite as cold-blooded as his character, so he couldn't help letting a smile and hearty laugh slip after flipping a double bird to the camera. To be honest it was probably a good move as it's never a good idea to confuse audiences to the point they think you're actually the character you play on screen, right?

The best part of Jeffrey Dean Morgan's response to Negan haters via IGN's Twitter has to be the subtle way he pops his glasses up before giving his response. If any other person popped their glasses up on their forehead just before unleashing a double middle finger, it would probably be seen as goofy, perhaps even unnecessary. Neither is the case with Morgan, who's rearranging of his glasses allowed him to shoot that dagger death stare right at the camera that The Walking Dead fans know all too well.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan's salute is the latest thing to go in the file regarding whether or not The Walking Dead will kill off Negan at the end of Season 8's All-Out War arc. Fans remember Rick made a promise to Carl to find a way to coexist with The Saviours, and while it's up in the air as to whether or not that means sparing Negan, other more spoilery details have given credence to speculation that the villain might make it through. Of course, Morgan's celebrity profile has only raised since The Walking Dead, so it wouldn't be all that surprising if he was killed off the show so he can be a part of more of the projects that are being offered to him.

The Walking Dead fanbase won't wait long to find out as the Season 8 penultimate episode airs on AMC Sunday, April 8 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
