BARBIE’S new S&M look has whipped up a storm – with protesters dubbing it “filth”.
The doll’s image is transformed with kinky fishnets, motorcycle jacket, black gloves and boots.
Makers Mattel say Black Canary Barbie, out in September, is based on a DC comic superhero of the same name.
But religious group Christian Voice said: “Barbie has always been on the tarty side and this is taking it too far.
A children’s doll in sexually suggestive clothing is irresponsible – it’s filth.”
the Sun page is here and you can add your comments. a bit more information on the doll is at barbie collectors site here.
