Toys R Us ban Breaking Bad figures

24 October 2014

breaking_bad Toys R Us have pulled Breaking Bad figures from their shelves after a campaign by a concerned 'Florida Mom'.

She started a petition to get the collectibles off the shelves, because they're related to a violent TV show about crack cocaine. Of course, these figures could only be found in the section designated for adults, but there you go.

The stars of the show aren't best pleased about it either. Aaron Paul who played Jesse Pinkman tweeted: "Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled all of the Breaking Bad figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie? Hmmmm...I wonder what is more damaging?"

He added: "And what about all of the violent video games you sell @ToysRUs ? Do you still sell those? Florida mom really messed it up for everyone."

Toys R Us said in a statement: "Let's just say, the action figures have taken an 'indefinite sabbatical.'"

Bryan Cranston tweeted his ire too: "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," adding: "Toys R Us puts Breaking Bad toys on 'indefinite sabbatical.' Word on the street is that they were sent to Belize. Nicely played Florida Mom."

So there you have it. America, where you can't buy toys from a toy shop, but you can get a free gun when you take out a loan. Crackers.

    Next the overreacting bitch will be complaining about chemistry sets. They obviously encourage the production of Methamphetamine by children.
