Aaron Paul has gone all Jesse Pinkman on Toys 'R' Us.

The Golden Globe winner slammed the toy store for pulling Breaking Bad action figures from their shelves after a Florida woman complained that the items were too adult for children.

"Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled all of the Breaking Bad figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie?" Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman on the hit AMC show, tweeted on Thursday. "Hmmmm...I wonder what is more damaging?"

Continuing his Twitter rant, the 35-year-old actor added: "And what about all of the violent video games you sell @ToysRUs? Do you still sell those? Florida mom really messed it up for everyone."

After expressing his outrage, it was time to take action. "Here's the petition to sign to keep the toys on the shelves!" he tweeted. "This would be so fun to show the Florida mom. YeahB**ch."

Earlier this week, Paul's co-star Bryan Cranston reacted to the news that the franchise was planning on pulling the toys, tweeting: "'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."

This all started when Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers, Fla. initiated a petition, writing: "Toys 'R' Us is well known around the world for their vast selection of toys for children of all ages. However their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children's toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values."

She continues: "While the show may be compelling viewing for adults, its violent content and celebration of the drug trade make this collection unsuitable to be sold alongside Barbie dolls and Disney characters."

Breaking Bad fans may have more trouble locating the beloved show's action figures, but Paul did host a scavenger hunt on Emmys day with items from the actual show set hidden throughout Los Angeles. Check it out, below.
