The Barbie doll comes in many different variations, but she is now donning a sort of stripper look…at least that’s what many of us thought.
There’s plenty of black Barbies out there, but there is NOT a new black Barbie available from Mattel with a stripper-look that shows a bit of cleavage.
The doll has a Nicki Minaj-ish look to her with bronze skin and golden blond hair, gold necklaces around her neck, toting Louis Vuitton’s monogram multi-color collection.
Mattel told MSN on Monday that the doll “is not a Barbie doll and is not created or sold by Mattel.” Repeat: they did not produce, create and/or sell the doll to anyone. It’s still not clear where the image originated, but “MSN News found it on the Facebook page of R&B radio station WBLS 107.5 and is waiting for a comment from them.”
So for all of you who are in an uproar over the doll, it may very well be a Nicki Minaj doll that is set to come out soon. Who knows? But we can rest knowing that Mattel isn’t putting out it’s latest African American Barbie stripper line.
Do you think this doll crosses the line? Let us know what you think. Comment below.
