Post to Twitter

Garance Franke-Ruta blogged about it here, writing: “…you can buy the “Grindhouse Rapist No. 1 Action Figure” : yes, it actually exists : via comparison-shopping site BizRate.com, and that it’s being sold by five different niche toy sites…” She concludes that it is intended to spark “manufactured outrage over a disgusting action figure based on a failed movie : all designed to generate publicity at one of Hollywood’s biggest online draws, while also turning rape into a joke.”
