Salma Hayek Slams Frida Kahlo Barbie Doll

Salma Hayek is among those not happy that Barbie made a new Frida Kahlo doll.

“#fridakahlo never tried to be or look like anyone else. She celebrated her uniqueness. How could they turn her into a Barbie,” Salma posted on her Instagram account. If you don’t know, Salma was nominated for an Oscar in 2002 for her work portraying the legendary artist. Salma included two thumbs down emojis in her caption, indicating her disapproval.

Some fans seemed to agree with Salma, commenting statements like, “they took away her mustache and brows. NO.,” “I get it, they are trying to grab her narrative and white wash it. Typical,” and “I love Frida and her art but I won’t be purchasing this doll for the girls in our family.”
