    Aaron Paul's Response To "Breaking Bad" Toys Being Banned From Toys "R" Us Is Just Perfect


    This week, Toys "R" Us pulled these Breaking Bad action figures from its shelves following a campaign by Florida mother Susan Schrivjer, nicknamed Florida Mom.

    As you can see, the figurines have completely disappeared from the Toys "R" Us website.

    But one person in particular isn't happy about it.

    Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman in the cult show, vented on Twitter, insisting the toy shop stocks much worse products.

    Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled all of the Breaking Bad figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie? Hmmmm...I wonder what is more damaging?

    And what about all of the violent video games you sell @ToysRUs ? Do you still sell those? Florida mom really messed it up for everyone.

    “@BarackObama: Wait, are you serious about the whole @ToysRUs thing?!?” Yes I am Mr. President. Yes I am.

    His co-star, Bryan Cranston, aka Heisenberg, also waded in over the news.

    "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

    Toys R Us puts Breaking Bad toys on 'indefinite sabbatical.' Word on the street is that they were sent to Belize. Nicely played Florida Mom.

    So now a new petition has been set up to reverse the decision.

    Here's the petition to sign to keep the toys on the shelves! This would be so fun to show the Florida mom. YeahBitch

    And Paul is wholeheartedly backing it.

    Here's the petition to sign to keep the toys on the shelves! Why can you sell guns and not Walt and Jesse? YeahBitch

    It's already up to 17,000 signatures – almost double what the original campaign received.

    Now we'll just have to sit back and see whether the action figures will get reinstated.

    UPDATE: Aaron is persisting with his campaign and has asked reps from Toys 'R' Us to speak to him about the removal, after the petition managed to get up to 30,000 signatures.

    Dear @ToysRUs, We have close to 30,000 signed on the petition, that is 3 times the amount that caused you to remove the toys. Talk to me. Ap
