When Aaron Paul won his third Emmy statue for “Breaking Bad” on Monday night, he shared his special moment with his wife, Lauren Parsekian, by publicizing — and ultimately, crashing — her charity website, Kind Campaign.

During his exuberant and moving speech, Paul said, “To my wife, my God, thank you for marrying me. Thank you for dedicating your life to spreading kindness across the world. We all appreciate it. If you guys don’t know what she does, look up Kind Campaign. Do yourself a favour, look up Kind Campaign.”

We know there are a ton of  “Breaking Bad” fans out there, so it’s no surprise that within mere minutes of mentioning the charity, which aims to stop girl-on-girl bullying and instead spread kindness, the website crashed and remained down for 24 hours.

It looks like Paul, who’s also voiced his own philanthropy by showing support for “Blackfish” and the shark finning doc, “Extinction Soup,” walked away with both an Emmy and the trophy for Best Husband of the Year.
