‘Django Unchained’ slavery action figures: Cool toys or disrespectful?
Django Unchained pushed the envelope by presenting slavery in a way that’s never been captured on film. However, Quentin Tarantino and the Weinstein Company are looking to gain more profits from their film about America’s worst travesty.
According to reports, Django Unchained action figures in the likeness of actors Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Remar and Christoph Waltz are being sold on Amazon.com.
In the aftermath from the film’s racy content, the action figures may make situations worse. Some will see the toys as another form of profiting from the pain of slavery among a race of people who were subjected to it for 400 years.
On the other hand, will we ever see dolls that depict individuals from the Holocaust?
