Well, Florida mom Susan Schrivjer may have gotten her way and convinced Toys R’ Us to yoink a line of Breaking Bad action figures from its shelves, but that doesn’t mean Bryan Cranston ain’t getting the final word on the matter. Cranston previously tweeted “‘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” when the news first broke, and now he’s back to concede defeat with a nice little Breaking Bad callback thrown in.
God, that’s great, even if it is a little infuriating to remember that one of the most decorated dramatic actors of this generation also happens to be one of the funniest. STOP HOARDING THE TALENT, CRANSTON.
