According to  because New York Daily News, they find it offensive. Rev. K.W. Tulloss also stated that: ”Selling this doll is highly offensive to our ancestors and the African American community.” Reportedly, the National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc.

In case you have been living under a rock, “Django Unchained,” is a film by Quentin Tarantino that received mixed reactions from moviegoers because some people found the plot and language offensive. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film an 89% rating. The plot of the movie involves the story of a slave before the civil war, in his quest for freedom. Jamie Foxx played the role of Django. Aside from Jamie Foxx, the cast included Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel Jackson, and Christoph Waltz. In the movie, the “N” word was used so often that during an interview with Samuel Jackson about the movie, he refused to answer the question unless the host said the “N” word. The interviewer did not, so the question was left unanswered. Jackson went on to say that if it was a good question, the interviewer should be able to say the word. Some concerned quarters claim that Quentin Tarantino is exploiting slavery, and NAN would like to stop the exploitation by boycotting the sale of the slavery toys. In another interview by Essence.com, Director Spike Lee said that he would not watch “Django Unchained” because “it’s disrespectful to his ancestors.” NAN did not react to the film, but are now vocal about boycotting the “Django Unchained” slavery toys being sold on Amazon for $299. According to them, the toys “make a mockery of slavery.”
