Aaron Paul says Barbie dolls are worse than the Breaking Bad toys

Premiere of 'Felony'


Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is breaking mad about Toys ‘R’ Us’ decision to pull the vaguely controversial Breaking Bad toy figures from its shelves. Once the petition begun by a Florida mother gained 9,000 signatures–or about as many people as die from food poisoning every year in America–the gloves were off.

Paul took to Twitter to vent his frustration:

Paul maybe goes a bit too far (though only half seriously) by trying to get the President involved, but it’s hard not to see his point. Toys ‘R’ Us sells plenty of toys and games that simulate violence, and Barbie dolls do untold damage to girls’ perceptions of themselves, of body image, and of the “right” way to look.

Plus, the Breaking Bad toys were in the adult-oriented part of the store

What do you, the viewers at home, think? Is Paul right to take the store and the unnamed Florida Mom to task? Did he overreact? Or under?
