Bay Area Mom Upset Over Breaking Bad Costume Made for Kids

Among the many things parents can -- and will -- do to completely fuck up their kids for life includes dressing them up as the two meth-making villains from Breaking Bad for Halloween.

Amy Graff, the Bay Area mom who pens pieces for the Chronicle's Mommy Files, pointed out just how utterly inappropriate the costume set -- which comes with blue rock candy -- is.

She explains her opinion in her latest piece titled "The most inappropriate children's Halloween costume ever (that you'll probably love"):

Talk about a disturbing riff on the American television crime drama series. As a mother, I have to say that I do not approve. Children shouldn't be even remotely involved with anything pertaining to meth -- thank you very much.

Graff was particularly pissed out how supportive the world was of this costume after Breaking Bad's favorite tweaker Aaron Paul tweeted the photo out a few days ago. As she notes, the image received thousands of likes and comments, most positive, such as: "Let's have babies just to make them wear great costumes."

"Isn't it fascinating how we're willing to accept something so inappropriate in the name of a pop culture phenomenon that's widely viewed as cool, hip, even intellectual," Graff writes. "Of course, if this were an image of children dressed up as Miley Cyrus in that horrific outfit we'd all be screaming, "Boo!""

We get it, meth -- even in the most make-believe form -- isn't adorable, especially on your perfect kid. Still, did she have to bring Miley Cyrus into this? In any event, she was right, majority of the people out there like it -- even Chron readers who used the comment section on the story to tell Graff to "lighten up."

No, but I did see a teenager with a really cool horrific zipper-face make up job. It was really disgusting, but wicked cool!

No, but I saw one child wearing a cut, which immediately made me think of Sons of Anarchy

Dracula may murder people, but he isn't a three year old suckin' on a blue meth lollipop. I think it's funny, but it's also some white trash Vice magazine PBR horseshit.

hipsters will wear their style on their own kids and fly it around like a billboard still funny, though.

Would classic costumes like Vampires, Werewolves, and Frankenstein would be ok? I'm pretty sure all of those characters murder people.

people really need to lighten up. I think it's funny and if someone doesn't like it, then don't dress up your kid in it. It's pretty simple.

if the final episode of Breaking Bad, which I loved, represents the new standard in desensitization of violence, then these costumes represent the beginning, of the end.

I think that when a kid is of age to understand costumes, he then has no fun being something his parents ressed him as, instead of being a pirate, a bunny, or whatever he/she is able to enjoy and have fun with

Oh get over yourself already! If you want to be offended by Halloween costumes, start with the ones that set women's rights back every time someone wears it! Like the "naughty nurse" or the little girls who have to be the sexiest one at the party?
