Black Canary Barbie: S&M Barbie Doll Controversy
Barbie just got a kinky makeover.
Christian groups are outraged over a new collector’s edition Barbie doll. Children’s advocates say Black Canary Barbie, who comes clad in fishnet stockings, black patent leather “hooker boots,” and signature slick leather jacket, represents the S&M sexual subculture and sends a negative message to children.
The doll is aimed toward kids 12 & older.
Black Canary Barbie is based on the DC Comics crime-fighting superheroine. She is a martial-arts master who leads the Justice Team of action heroes.
