Lowell Sun

LOWELL — The words hit Shawn Queen like a knife in the gut — a serial killer action figure.

Queen was dozing in front of the television last week in her Lowell apartment when the evening news ran a story about an Ohio man who objected to Toys ‘R’ Us selling the “Dexter” action figure modeled after a television show about a serial killer who kills other murderers.

“I couldn’t believe what I was hearing,” the 49-year-old mother of three grown children said.

“A serial killer doll at Toys ‘R’ Us? Why in this day and age would we want to expose children to this?”

So Shawn Queen’s going after Dexter dolls eh? I can only assume that the guy’s that make Freddy Krueger knife hands, and Jason masks have better legal teams right?

  1. She BOUGHT one? Hahaha, she gave money to the company who makes the doll she so vehemently opposes. Perfect. (Incidentally, I love Dexter.)

  2. I just love that she BOUGHT this “horrific action figure” and let the company profit off of her… Some people will do anything for their 15 minutes of fame. From what I know about Ms Queen, maybe she is trying to look like the perfect parenting role model to make up for her lack of proper parenting with her own children… I agree… cockoo… cockoo…

  3. that’s why the world is so messed up, because people like you are clueless and feel it is ok to have a doll on the sheveles of a childrens store! right on the package it says 18yrs. and older. Um so your are an adult at 18..right mr. millcity? go ahead and put it in spencers gifts or newbury comics, but don,t mess with my innocent children who have enough on there plte in this sick world.
