Bryan Cranston burning ‘Florida mom action figure’ in protest
What's the fuss w/the 'Breaking Bad' toys at Toys R Us? It's not like u can use them to make real meth otherwise they'd already be sold out.

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.
