Lisa Ray slams Barbie craze among ‘woke millennials’, ‘Gen Zers’, ‘influencers’, netizens say ‘watch it again’

Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and Greta Gerwig’s Barbie have become the biggest talk of the town. Clashing at the box office on July 21, both the films are performing extremely well. While Oppenheimer’s craze among Indian audiences is something unmatched, Barbie’s pace has not slowed down in any way. In fact, Barbie craze has gripped the masses so much that many are recreating Barbie-inspired looks, makeovers, and even going to theaters to watch the movie dressed in pink. Amidst all this, actress Lisa Ray criticized both millennials and Gen Z for their obsession with Barbie, despite being aware of the oppression of women depicted in the film.

Lisa Ray hits on Barbie

Taking to Twitter, Lisa Ray wrote a lengthy note calling out so-called “woke millennials” and “Gen Zers” for celebrating the Barbie movie, which she says has many flaws. “A real question to the awakened millennials and Gen Zers: How come you’re not only outraged about the Barbie movie — which is really a huge marketing push for an agent of female oppression disguised as a movie — but many of you also engage in Barbiecore and posting cute pictures in hot pink?” she tweeted.

Lisa Ray in the Barbie trend

Lisa Ray added that even social media influencers who voice their opinions on sexism and social inequalities are also following the Barbie trend without a second thought. “How?! I see young influencers raising the alarm against social inequities and sexism and yet fervently celebrating a film that, however subversive, carries Barbie’s unwanted standards and their legacy to the next generation of girls. I can only think that marketing budgets have caught up to them. Please enlighten,” she wrote.

Twitter reacted

However, most of the Twitterati disagreed with Lisa Ray. While some asked her to watch the film again, others raised objections to the use of the word ‘wake up’. “Hey Lisa, the movie is the exact opposite of what you say,” read one comment. “I guess you missed the bus. The song I’m a barbie doll was precisely a song that caricatured gender stereotypes. I haven’t seen the movie, but I suggest you watch it again, with the idea that it’s all satire,” pointed out another.
