Controversy Sparked by Alleged New Black Barbie Image with Cleavage

The new black Barbie? NOT!

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.” AGAIN! 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.

  1. It’s funny that we can be mad about a doll that represents what we do everyday by supporting the weave shops and parlor that do sew in and spend over $100 on hair. I would buy her in a heart beat. I collect Barbies and I am black so if you know where I can buy her email me crawfordward
