There is no natural phenomenon more dangerous than an offended mom. Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers, Florida, was outraged when she encountered Breaking Bad action figures, complete with miniature bags of fake crystal meth, for sale at her local Toys ‘R’ Us. Schrivjer started a Change.org petition imploring the retailer to pull all four toys in the collection, calling the plastic homage to the Emmy-winning AMC show a “dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.”
More than 9,000 signatures later, Toys ‘R’ Us has announced that that they’ll no longer sell the Breaking Bad toys, neither in stores nor online.We’d never argue that the violent criminal misadventures of teacher turned kingpin Walter White are in any way appropriate for children. But…really? This is what bothers you?
