It seems that Breaking Bad and Toys “R” Us are not seeing eye-to-eye when it comes to toys this time of the year. Toys “R” Us have pulled the Breaking Bad toys of characters Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) from the shelves just earlier this month.
Both Cranston and Paul have voiced their opinions on the matter with Toys “R” Us with disdain. Cranston spoke of a Florida mom, Susan Myers, who got signatures to help ban Breaking Bad toys from Toys “R” Us. He joked about that he would be burning his Florida mom figure in protest to this. While, Paul has gone to Twitter to speak of how Barbie dolls are still on shelves, had a pretend tweet where he responded to President Barack Obama, and last mentioned that Florida mom Susan Myers should worry more about violent video games being sold at Toys “R” Us instead of the Breaking Bad toys as much.
The funny thing is that Paul is not wrong on the violent video games thing. Toys “R” Us sells rated M for mature audiences in their stores for they are the ones that get the most attention. So, why not sell Breaking Bad toys too? Just put them behind a lock, in case, or both just as the video games are. It makes sense for all that had to be done is make it that a person had to show identification that they were at least mature enough to be watching Breaking Bad. However, if Susan Myers is so upset about the Breaking Bad toys then maybe she should not let her children be watching it in the first place.
