Many advocacy ordinations - such as Project Islamic Hope and Al Sharpton's National Action Network - had spoken out against the figures because they didn't believe it was appropriate for the topic of slavery to be marketed to children.

In response, the Weinsten Company reportedly reached out to the toy manufacturer, which didn't hesitate to quell the uproar and pull the items.

Only about 1,000 dolls have been produced since the film premiere anyway.
