Just when you think Bryan Cranston has reached weathered-jazz-musician levels of cool, he goes and ups the bar again.
Last week a mom in Florida got so upset about ‘Breaking Bad’ characters being sold in her local toy store that she launched a massive campaign to rid the United States of these horrid playthings.
Now, we’re not necessarily saying that it’s right to have toy characters known for their expert meth-manufacturing skills sold between stuffed animals and Hasbro board games for 7-year-olds, but the majority of people would probably have seen Walter White, thought, “That’s odd,” and moved right along.
Not aforementioned Florida mom Susan Schrivjer. “Kids mimic their action figures, if you will.” Schrivjer told the local news station. “Do you want your child in an orange jumpsuit?”
Now, we could probably sympathize a bit more were it not for the fact that Toys ‘R’ Us is not new to selling merchandise that references all sorts of crimes, from games about larceny and prostitution, to other criminally deranged figures like this one, this one, and this one.
Anyway, Cranston had a proper response to the whole ordeal:
“Florida mom petitions against Toys ‘R Us over Breaking Bad action figures.” I’m so mad, I’m burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest
