Aaron Paul Says Barbie Is Worse Than Breaking Bad Toys

Aaron Paul is not happy about a Florida mom's now-successful crusade to have Breaking Bad action figures pulled from shelves at Toys "R" Us. Although the store sold the toys in its section intended for adults, the mom's request was granted. "Putting something that has fake illegal drugs with it next to G.I. Joe or Mario Bros. just morally isn't right," Susan Schrivjer said on Fox & Friends. "This has nothing to do with people taking their kids in there or buying that or anything. This has to do with the placement of that doll."
The first we heard of her petition to have the toys removed was after Bryan Cranston tweeted a cheeky response to it. "'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," Walter White's portrayer wrote.

Schrivjer was extremely reasonable about the whole saga, saying she appreciated Cranston's response. "He's being very good-natured about it and everything, and I truly appreciate that. I don't feel like I'm being attacked or anything like that," she told Fox News.
Well, Heisenberg was always the more calm reactor of the meth-slinging pair. Jesse Pinkman, on the other hand, was not happy with the store's acquiescence, and he took to Twitter to express his feelings.

He even got the President involved.
There's now a petition to get the Breaking Bad toys back on the shelves at Toys "R" Us. The petition has over 30,000 signatures, which Paul noted is three times the amount that caused the store to remove the toys.
Jesse Pinkman to Toys "R" Us: You just got served, bitch.
