Stop Selling Kardashian Kids Clothing
When I started the petition, my goal was to point out the hypocrisy of Toys R US pulling the Breaking Bad toys, but still having a clothing line sponsored by the Kardashians. My point was not that people should not buy the items, or that Baby’sRUS/ToysRUS actually remove them from the shelves. I wanted ToysRUS/BabiesRUS to see that if they caved to one upset consumer that more would come out of the woodwork. I chose the Kardashian Kids line because I would not choose to put my daughter in these clothes, and because the Kardashians are not people that have the family values that I uphold. But, that is my choice. This whole petition, and the very negative responses I have received, has gotten larger than I ever expected when I started it last week. In the end it did get people discussing the issue. I have learned a valuable lesson when dealing with the media as well. The original article seemed to leave out that this petition wasn’t a crusade, but a means to get people discussing who should be raising their children, and what things retailers have the right to sell.
