The controversial “Django Unchained” action figures have been pulled from the market after an uproar from Al Sharpton and several well-organized groups.
Change.org, the same people that put an end to the Shawty Lo show with all his babies mamas, are the same people that got the action figures yanked. Big Ups to them.
Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and Project Islamic Hope caused the Weinstein Company to rethink the dolls, after an article from the Daily Beast shined a light on the issues surrounding it.
After the outrage, reports state the Weinstein Company’s asked the toy company to stop production and it’s reported that only 1,000 dolls were made before shutting down production.
Now those 1,000 dolls will become collector’s items.
Imagine Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington and Samuel Jackson “dolls” on the auction blocks about ten years from now, the irony that would be.
