Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is really upset about Breaking Bad action figures being pulled from all Toys r Us stores. He turned to Twitter to express himself on the topics, tweeting “Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled out all of the Breaking Bad action figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie? Hmm… I wonder what is more damaging?”
He might have a good point. The popular toy store pulled the figurines from their shelves after parents caused a stir all over the country, saying that selling action figures based on a show in which the main stars run a meth lab goes against the family values that Toys r Us should be promoting. The toys were created to look like Paul’s character Jessie and Bryan Cranston’s Walter White, each of them having a bag of meth and some cash on them as well.
Cranston isn’t happy with the move either, and this is the message he released:
“Toys R Us puts the Breaking Bad toys on an ‘indefinite sabbatical.’ Word on the street is that they were sent to Belize. Nicely played Florida Mom.”
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.
