TOYS R US REMOVES BREAKING BAD ACTION FIGURES

Breaking Bad toys are no longer part of the "us" in the toy-store chain with "us" in its title. The chain removed them following an online petition campaign instigated by a woman in Florida. On Thursday, Aaron Paul, who stars in the AMC series, let loose a series of tweets, ending with "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." The Florida woman, Susan Schrivjer, had particularly objected to action figures depicting Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, holding a stash of crystal meth. "Putting something that has fake illegal drugs with it next to G.I. Joe or Mario Bros. just morally isn’t right," she said on Fox News Channel on Thursday.
