Toys "R" Us is selling Breaking Bad action figures and some parents just aren't cool with that. What, is it the fact that the Walter as Heisenberg action figure comes complete with "a sack of cash, and a bag of blue crystals"—is that the problem? Nearly 3,000 people have already signed an online petition to take the Walter and Jesse products off the shelves at Toys "R" Us. "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," wrote Susan Myers, the author of the Change.org petition.
