Toys ‘R’ Us Forced To Withdraw ‘Breaking Bad’ Dolls From Online Store | TV News
A mother in Florida has started a petition to force Toys ‘R’ Us to remove ‘Breaking Bad’ action figures from its online store. Susan Schrivjer is livid with the toy retailer after action figures of a gun wielding Heisenberg and meth cooking Jesse Pinkman went on sale in-store, and via its website. The figures come with either a gun, a bag of cash or a bag of sky blue crystal meth, and are being sold along side Barbie and Disney Characters.
The mother believes they should not be sold as they are a “dangerous deviation from their family friendly values“. Her protest gained so much press attention that (inevitably) Bryan Cranston heard and spoke out over twitter saying: “‘Florida mom petitions against Toys ‘R’ Us over Breaking Bad action figures’. I’m so mad, I’m burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest“. Since the petition opened, Toys ‘R’ Us appears to have removed the action figures from their website.
