Aaron Paul Is Mad That Toys ‘R’ Us Pulled ‘Breaking Bad’ Figurines from Shelves

Aaron Paul Is Mad That Toys ‘R’ Us Pulled ‘Breaking Bad’ Figurines from Shelves: Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly

Earlier this week, Toys ‘R’ Us pulled from its shelves a miniature plastic likeness of “Breaking Bad’s” Heisenberg—Walter White’s meth-dealing alter ego—after a Floridian mom got more than 2,000 people to sign a petition for removal.

The woman maintains that selling a doll that holds a gun and comes with a sack of cash and a bag of meth is a dangerous deviation from the toy store’s “family friendly values.”

“While the show may be compelling viewing for adults, its violent content and celebration of the drug trade make this collection unsuitable to be sold alongside Barbie dolls and Disney characters,” she wrote.

This really pissed off Aaron Paul.

Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman in the extremely popular show, took to Twitter to contest Toys ‘R’ Us’s decision.

Many have rallied around the actor’s assertion that the massive toy corporation’s decision to remove Heisenberg from its stock was a hypocritical one. It sparked a countering petition to keep “Breaking Bad” and other adult collector figures on Toys ‘R’ Us shelves.

As of Friday afternoon, more than 35,000 people had signed the petition.

Brian Cranston, who played Heisenberg/Walter White, also commented via Twitter, though he took a decidedly more humorous take than Paul.
