Whoopi Goldberg Goes Off On Negative ‘Barbie’ Comments: ‘It’s A Movie About A Doll!’
Whoopi Goldberg is clapping back at “Barbie” haters. On Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” the 67-year-old talk show host responded to criticism the film got from conservatives including Senator Ted Cruz, Ben Shapiro and more. “It’s a movie! It’s a movie about a doll! I thought y’all would be happy. [Barbie] has no genitalia, so there’s no sex involved. Ken has no genitalia, so he can’t — it’s a doll movie! And the kids know it’s colorful and it’s Barbie,” she exclaimed on the show. Whoopi then showed off how much she loves Barbie, as she wore shoes with the doll’s face all over them. The Greta Gerwig-directed film starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling killed it at the box office over its opening weekend, raking in $162 million, which was way ahead of its original $90 million prediction, and has achieved a total global success of $337 million.
