What has actor Bryan Cranston going all “Walter White” on Florida moms? It’s no big deal, really. Toys R Us has announced that it will carry a detailed Walter White action figure. In fact, it’s so detailed, it comes with a bag of blue meth as an accessory. That has some parents up in arms.
Florida mom Susan Myers started a petition on Change.org to remove the Breaking Bad action figures from shelves. As Myers wrote on the petition text, “Their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.”
If it wasn’t sold out before, it almost certainly is now.

Cranston himself fired back against the petition, and his threat to burn his Florida Mom action figure in protest has racked up more than 18,000 favorites in a matter of hours.

Those freaking out about Toys R Us selling "Breaking Bad" Action Figures do not understand the adult collector market http://t.co/bkRzAZCj2q
