California| The toy manufacturing corporation Mattel, has announced this morning during a press conference in its headquarters in El Segundo in California, that they are releasing a new Barbie doll specially conceived to represent the typical 21st century american woman.

This new Barbie is shockingly different from all the previously released dolls of the brand, taking Barbie fans completely by surprise and bringing instantly both positive and negative reactions.

“This is a tragedy” says Bill Corrick, fan and collector of Barbie products. “They transformed the ultimate representation of beauty into a fat Cheetos-eating slob! It’s a crime against good taste! My eyes still hurt from looking at it!”

Feminist organizations and overweight people defense groups have both praised this new iniative from Mattel. Fat Mothers Against Anorexia (FMAA) issued a statement saying that it was “about time Barbie stopped looking like an anorexic bimbo and started looking like a Real woman.”

    Part of me can’t help laughing at this but at the same time there is a concern that little girls will think it’s okay to be too overweight just as it’s not good to be anorexic etc. Can’t they just make an average size Barbie? But I suppose this is average size now in 2014.

    To me, it seems like Mattel is making fun of Americans and overweight women. To me, this seems like a mockery. Not to mention, the photo depicted in this article makes the entire thing worse. Also, fuck Bill Corrick. Just because the Barbie is overweight does not make her a “Cheeto-eating slob.” Seriously, go fuck yourself, Bill.
