“Let’s just say, the action figures have taken an ‘indefinite sabbatical,'” Toys “R” Us said in a statement EW obtained. The petition, which garnered over 9,000 signatures, called the company’s “decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys…a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.”
Bryan Cranston was none too pleased upon hearing about the petition:
“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

And if Cranston is burning his Florida mom toys, one can only imagine how the real Walter White would take his revenge.
Update: Cranston has responded.
