‘Django’ Slave Toys Discontinued

Sorry we’re not sorry that controversial Django Unchained action figures have reportedly been discontinued. Sources involved with the toy company told TMZ that they’ve halted all production of the 8-inch figurines of slaves and their murderous owners depicted in Quentin Tarantino’s film after advocacy groups spoke out against them. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and Project Islamic HOPE allegedly slammed the Weinstein Co., the film’s producer, which then told the toy company to pull the figurines off shelves. Some 1,000 action figures were said to be available for purchase before the toy line was killed.
