The toy company Hasbro, accused of promoting child crime, will withdraw a doll it had marketed. The toy, bearing the image of the character Poppy, has a button on its stomach that allows it to pronounce sentences and make sounds, reports Slate .

But the controversy comes from elsewhere. Between Poppy's legs, a second button makes her grow small cries of joy, reports the Refinery29 site   relayed by Slate . An online petition has already collected more than 400,000 signatures, calling for its withdrawal from the market.

Several videos have been posted on social networks to denounce the feature. "What will our innocent and impressionable children think of this toy?" Ask the authors of the petition. "How fun is it to have someone touch their private parts?" "

Rolling Stone magazine investigated and discovered that this button was actually a sensor that should activate when the doll was seated. Hasbro admitted that this was a blunder and offered to exchange the doll for a product of equivalent value. According to the RAINN organization (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), one in nine minors and one in 53 minors are victims of child crime.
