Earlier in the week, a bored Florida mum launched a Change.org petition to ban the sale of Breaking Bad dolls from Toys 'R Us, claiming the figures with detachable sacks of fake meth were "a dangerous deviaton from their family friendly values".
Toys 'R Us responded, clarifying that the toys' packaging "clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up" and that they are only sold "in the adult action figure area of our stores", but this fell on deaf ears.
Cranston himself has now weighed in however, attracting 20,000 retweets as he wrote: ""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."

Florida moms vs Bryan Cranston may be a fight the actor can't win however, with the petition having already attracted nearly 6,000 signatures, less than 2,000 short of its goal.Reuse content
