Toy manufacturers have stepped up in the inclusivity file over the last many years by making dolls that represent different ethnicities and now the ultimate conformist doll, Barbie is available in different shapes, sizes and skin tones.
But when Mattel released its latest rendition of its iconic doll, many were unhappy with Black Barbie’s hairstyle.
Stated one commentator on social media:
“Who’s bright idea was it to style the AA Barbie’s hair like that. All of these beautiful brown women in all industries, you couldn't find ONE to look to for hair inspiration? You need to remove her and start from scratch IMMEDIATELY!!”
