Sorry, mom. Looks like you won't be able to buy your son the Walter White doll he's always wanted. A Fort Myers mom recently received 8,000 signatures on her Change.org petition to remove Breaking Bad dolls from Toys R Us stores, stating that the figurines dolls were a "dangerous deviation from their family friendly values." Don't worry though. A petition has been going around to rally pro Breaking Bad troops, and so far it's got 3,000 signatures. [Miami Herald]
