Critics Slam Mattel's New Barbie, Calling S&M Outfit 'Filth'

from The Sun

Barbie's new S&M look has whipped up a storm — with protesters dubbing it "filth."

The doll's image is transformed with kinky fishnets, motorcycle jacket, black gloves and boots.

Maker Mattel says Black Canary Barbie, out in September, is based on a DC comic superhero of the same name.

But religious group Christian Voice said: "Barbie has always been on the tarty side and this is taking it too far. A children's doll in sexually suggestive clothing is irresponsible — it's filth."
