Toys R Us Pulls 'Breaking Bad' Action Figures After Parents Complain
After introducing a line of "Breaking Bad" action figures intended for adults, Toys R Us was forced to pull the line of toys when a Florida mom caused controversy. Susan Schrivjer started a petition, which garnered more than 7,000 signatures, to return Toys R Us to a "family focused atmosphere." The figures, which depict a high school chemistry teacher turned crystal meth dealer, his druggie sidekick, and a bag of fake crystal meth, will no longer be sold in stores or on the retailer's website. Their original label read "15 and up" and toys were shelved in the adult action figure area.
