One Million Heifers threatens Toys R Us over Archie Comics

These women are either unloved or busy bodies. After their failed attempt to get Ellen booted from JC Penney, they go after Toys R Us.

Why? Because they carry the Archie Comic with Kevin and his husband on the cover. These heifers even wrote their whinny letter to Toy R Us just to make them squirm?
As a mother and a member of, I am extremely disappointed to learn that select Toys 'R' Us stores are now selling 'Archie' comic books with a same-sex wedding displayed on the front cover. I am referring to the ones where the front cover reads "Just Married" with two men marrying, one wearing a service uniform.

I am aware that Toys 'R' Us employees do not actually set up the displays; they leave this up to the vendor. Your company should be aware of the merchandise being sold in your stores nonetheless. These comic books are displayed at the front checkout counters so they are highly visible to employees, managers, customers and children.

Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage in your toy store. This is the last place a parent would expect to be confronted with questions from their children on topics that are too complicated for them to understand. Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, which is becoming extremely common and unnecessary.

A trip to the toy store turns into a premature discussion on sexual orientation and is completely uncalled for. Toys 'R' Us should be more responsible in the products they carry.

Please remove all the same-sex "Just Married - Archie" comic books immediately from your shelves. My decision to shop in your stores depends on it.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.
Girls please, this is Toys R Us. They could buy you and primp y'all on Sunset Blvd. Try someone else, someone you can actually scare.

They have far too much time on their hands.
Don't like a comic with gay characters?
