Día de Muertos Barbie: Respectful Tribute, or ‘Obviously Cultural Appropriation’?
The newly released doll, adorned with motifs associated with the Mexican holiday, has raised concerns about the watering down of a 3,000-year-old tradition.

Here she is.

Why not Pietà Barbie with a weeping, blue and white-draped Barbie holding the bloody loincloth-clad Ken across her lap? Or maybe a modestly crucified Barbie?

I'm probably overreacting...
What's humorous is the people complaining about this. First it was "Why does Barbie have to be White & blonde! Racist!" Now it's "Why is Barbie celebrating a different culture? Cultural appropriation!"
