Aaron Paul attacks Toys 'R' Us bosses over Breaking Bad dolls fuss

Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul has blasted bosses at kids' store Toys 'R' Us for pulling his action figure from shelves.

The actor, who played Jesse Pinkman in the hit series, was upset to learn miniatures of his and Bryan Cranston's drug dealer characters had been dumped following complaints from a mom, who felt they were inappropriate.


He took to Twitter.com on Thursday (23Oct14) and wrote, "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."


Toys 'R' Us bosses have no plans to put the figures back on shelves, announcing they're taking an "indefinite sabbatical".


Cranston let his feelings be known earlier this week (beg20Oct14) when he tweeted: "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... Nicely played Florida Mom."
