2,000+ sign petition to remove 'Breaking Bad' toys from Toys 'R' Us
- TV Show
For Breaking Bad fans, an action figure of Heisenberg carrying a gun might sound pretty cool. But when said action figure is sold on the same shelf as a Barbie at Toys “R” Us, well—odds are Skyler White wouldn’t be too happy about it.
Susan Myers, who started a petition on Change.org, is campaigning to get the Breaking Bad action figures removed from shelves. As Myers wrote, “Their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.”
She continued, “While the show may be compelling viewing for adults, its violent content and celebration of the drug trade make this collection unsuitable to be sold alongside Barbie dolls and Disney characters.”
As of earlier today, more than 2,000 adults had signed the petition.
