Toys"R"Us on Wednesday said it was pulling "Breaking Bad" dolls from its shelves after a Florida woman complained about the kids' store selling the drug-themed products.
"Let's just say the action figures have taken an indefinite sabbatical," the retailer said in a statement widely circulated by US media, a cheeky nod to the hit TV show whose main character quits his job as a chemistry teacher to become a drugs kingpin.
Toys"R"Us drew criticism after Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers, Florida started an online petition for the retailer to drop the dolls.
Plastic figurines depict Walter White holding a handgun and White's accomplice, Jesse Pinkman, wearing a protective suit used in the manufacture of crystallized methamphetamine.
The toys come complete with a little gas mask and a tray of blue crystals.
The Toys"R"Us decision to sell the dolls was "a dangerous deviation from their family-friendly values," Schrivjer wrote.
"Get those taken off the shelves and put them in an appropriate store. Put them in an adult store," she told a local TV station.
Actor Bryan Cranston, who plays the show's Walter White, jokingly tweeted: "I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest."
Schrivjer's petition garnered more than 9,000 signatures.
