Barbie is a Serial Killer!

"Barbie is trashing rainforests and pushing critically endangered
wildlife, like tigers, towards extinction," said Bustar Maitar, head of
Greenpeace’s campaign to save the forests in Indonesia.



"This is happening because Barbie's packaging comes from the
rainforests of Indonesia, home to species like the Sumatran tiger,"
Maitar continued

When activists Tuesday began posting critical messages on Barbie’s
Facebook fan page, which has 2.2 million followers, Mattel shut down
commenting on the page and deleted any mention of rain forests. No new
comments since Monday were visible on the page as of late Wednesday.

Early Wednesday, activists hung a giant banner of a frowning Ken doll in
London's Piccadilly Circus reading “Barbie, you’re dumped: Girls that
threaten furry animals make me sick.” The message was a play on Mattel’s
marketing campaign, which has Ken reuniting with Barbie after a
breakup.
