Studio Gibli is taking Totoro merchandise out of a PR facility in a Fukushima nuclear plant after fans complained the giant bear-cat-ghost-furball-guardian should not represent nuclear safety.

The Fukushima plant’s decision to pimp nuclear energy with a creature that looks like the result of nuclear fallout is courageous at best, stupid at worst most likely. The real shocker though, is that there’s a nuclear plant with a gift shop.
