So much for Bryan Cranston getting the best of Florida Woman.
As previously detailed, a Fort Myers resident named Susan Schrivjer started a Change.org petition late last week in protest of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman action figures on sale at Toys R Us.
Citing the “violent content and celebration of the drug trade” in Breaking Bad, Schrivjer said it was inappropriate for the chain to carry dolls that came with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth.
And despite initially releasing a statement that defended the dolls at being labeled for patrons of 15 years of age, while also being for sale in the Adults section, Toys R Us has now pulled the items from its shelves.
"Let's just say, the action figures have taken an indefinite sabbatical," the New Jersey-based company said in a statement
As of Tuesday, Schrivjer's petition had 8,000 signatures.
On Monday, meanwhile, Cranston, the actor who earned four Emmys for portraying White, responded to the controversy by awesome Tweeting: "I'm so mad. I am burning my Florida mom action figure in protest."
And then there’s Daniel Pickett, of Manhattan Beach, California. He launched a petition on change.org in favor of the toy seller keeping the dolls. It has 3,000 signatures on it and it reads:
"I'm a parent of a school aged child myself, but I'm an informed, responsible parent and I closely monitor the toys, TV, music, movies and games that my daughter sees.
"That's my job, and I take it seriously. But I also like toys/action figures and I want 3-D representations of characters from my favorite properties and I love being able to walk into a store and find them."
