Bryan Cranston, Walter White himself, has responded to a campaign by a Florida mom to have "Breaking Bad" action figures banned from Toys R Us stores.

A Change.org petition calls on Toys R Us to stop selling the "Breaking Bad" doll collections, saying that the retailer’s “decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.”

The petition has almost 8,000 supporters on Tuesday afternoon.

Cranston tweeted his response to the campaign on Monday.



Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers, Florida, launched the petition after seeing the action figures — including lab coats, beakers, and gas masks — at a local Toys R Us store.

“Kids mimic their action figures, if you will,” Schrivjer told local station Fox 4. “Do you want your child in an orange jumpsuit?”

Schrivjer added that she has nothing against the store and thinks the action figures should be sold in outlets targeted to adults.

“The products you reference are carried in very limited quantities and the product packaging clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up. Items from this TV series are located in the adult action figure area of our stores,” Toys R Us said in a statement sent to Fox 4.

Twitter users posted a variety of responses.
