As if today’s society wasn’t already in a constant outrage about races, toy company Playmobil has taken toy detailing to a new extreme by including what they called a “shackle” in a toy kit.

The kit includes a bunch of pieces put together to create pirate ship with ship members. The shackle was allegedly for a darker ship member that was dressed up in ripped clothing.

Ida Lockett, the mother who’s son received the toy as a birthday gift, told CBS Sacramento,

“You cannot have this specific accessory and call it anything else. The fact that you can Google it, look it up, say what it is — it’s a slave collar.”

According to PlayMobil, who made a statement to the Washington Post, the ship is designed to look like a real-life 17th century pirate ship.

“If you look at the box, you can see that the pirate figure is clearly a crew member on the pirate ship and not a captive. The figure was meant to represent a pirate who was a forment slave in a historical context. It was not our intention to offend anyone in anyway.”

If that statement is true, one has to ask why two of the characters, including the one with the shackle accessory, do not have shoes and why their clothes appear to be ripped.
