"Django Unchained" Action Figures YANKED Off The Market

 photo 0118-django-toys-3_zps17efd45a.jpg

The controversial "Django Unchained" action figures have been pulled from the market after an uproar from several well-organized groups.  More details inside....

 

Our cousins have been on a roll lately when it comes to ridding the market of ideas and concepts deemed hurtful towards the African American race.  First, our folks got together on Change.Org and put the squash on Shawty-Lo, and now the same has happened to the Django Unchained dolls.

Some of the loudest voices were Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and Project Islamic Hope who 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.

But on the flip side of that coin....now those 1,000 dolls will become collector's items.

Just imagine Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington and Samuel Jackson "dolls" on the auction blocks about ten years from now....oh the irony.

Lol... I think they did it

Lol... I think they did it because they did the same for his previous film: Inglorious Basterds. They're not supposed to be played with, they were fashioned as collectibles. But still, with all the backlash the movie received, they should have known Al Sharpton and crew would have had them yanked given the subject matter.

I so co-sign the utter foolishness of the dolls!! HAM is an understatement. But what part of the south do you visit that have Mammy cookie jars?? I been in Texas my entire life & I've never seen one. I think a petition needs to be on deck to have that establishment boycotted. Lol

I visit Virginia, the Carolinas & parts of Georgia like Savannah, Alpharetta, Macon etc & I have seen them damn atrocious Mammy cookie jars in lil mom & pops stores! I haven't seen them lately in Georgia but in South Carolina (whoooooew) they're EVERYWHERE! I guess it ain't so bad becuz they aren't sold in chain stores like Wal-mart but they still kinda make u take a step back & say "Was that--what I think it was??"

Hallelujer. I liked the

Hallelujer. I liked the movie but the dolls were over-the-top; and that's saying a lot considering the movie was the same...in a good way though lol. The action and gore in Quentin's movies is no more perplexing or "extreme" than that which you would find in any other blockbuster horror or action flick. It's HIS expression and HIS art, and I think a lot of people forget that. Whether you appreciate it or not is your business.

Girl you need to preach to

Girl you need to preach to them... I didnt like the thought of buying and selling slaves all over again. If I saw a white kid playing with slave dolls I would really punch them in the face and then punch their parent in the face for buying their kid a slave. Next thing you know we are right back to where we started. And then I'm dead because I couldnt be as faithful and patient as the slaves were. Do you guys really want me to die?

Lol... just because you don't

Lol... just because you don't like something doesn't mean that it's made for "brain dead idiots." Uplifting your opinion by insulting others is something that "brain dead" one dimensional idiots do ;].
