Salma Hayek Slams Mattel's Frida Kahlo Barbie Doll
SALMA HAYEK YOU CAN’T ‘BARBIE’ FRIDA KAHLO! And Where’s Her Unibrow?

Salma Hayek is just the latest person blasting Mattel for making a Barbie out of Mexican artist and women’s rights icon Frida Kahlo — asking what many already have … how???

Salma called out the toy company Sunday over their newest Barbie release … a dolled up Frida, who’s missing her signature unibrow and other famous characteristics in plastic form.

The actress — who was nominated for an Oscar playing Frida in 2002 — seemed in shock over the decision to glamorize Frida, saying … “#fridakahlo never tried to be or look like anyone else. She celebrated her uniqueness. How could they turn her into a Barbie.”

Lots of folks are pissed Mattel created a Barbie in Frida’s image — some of her descendants have reportedly claimed Mattel never even obtained permission to use her name and likeness, but Mattel disputes that … saying they got the go-ahead from the owner.
