The Internet Is At War Over This Black Barbie's Hairstyle

The Internet Is At War Over This Black Barbie's Hairstyle

But now, there seems to be a bit of discontent regarding the hairstyle of one of the brand's black Barbies.

The other day, Barbie posted a photo of three dolls to promote the Hulu release of Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie, a documentary about the company.

The comments section quickly became flooded by people who were not impressed with the black Barbie's hairstyle. 

A number of people thought the Barbie's hairstyle was flat-out unappealing. 
Others wondered who, within the company, had approved such a hairstyle, insisting that a black woman would never allow such a hairdo to pass review.

However, not everyone was bothered by the look.

In fact, just as many people were totally here for it. 
They pointed out that many black women rock this hairstyle in real life and that just because some people dislike, that doesn't mean it isn't a hairstyle worn by real women.
One user also noted that it was good for young girls to see themselves represented in a variety of ways, including hairstyles. 

And, to that point, it's clear to see that Barbie is working towards diversity in hairstyles for their black dolls.

Ultimately, not everyone may be a fan of the Barbie's hairstyle above. Regardless, it's a style worn by many women in real life.
And frankly, the more women Barbie represents in its products, the better.
