Trans Barbie dolls? Hollywood braces for another woke disaster at the box office

Trans Barbie dolls? Hollywood braces for another woke disaster at the box office

On July 21, the new “Barbie” live action movie will hit theaters across the country.

Featuring Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken, the highly anticipated Warner Bros film is projected to earn over $80 million just on opening day.

But, there’s been a trend of movies flopping at the box office lately.

Not just any movies though — woke movies specifically.

Take Pixar’s film “Elemental.” It resulted in the second-lowest three-day opening in the history of the studio.

Why did it flop when it had a $200 million budget and was expected to earn $40 million on opening weekend?

Might it have had something to do with the fact that one of the characters is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns?

What about Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” remake?

Its box office performance was also deemed a failure.

Could it be related to the fact that Ariel’s iconic flaming red hair was suddenly ... replaced?

Regardless, numbers are indisputable, and the numbers for many of these overtly woke movies are abysmal.

It won’t be shocking, then, if the new Barbie movie follows suit because it, too, has a woke agenda, and Dave Rubin, for one, is far from thrilled about it.

The film “includes a biologically male actor who identifies as a woman playing a female doctor,” tweeted Mary Margaret Olohan next to a picture of Hari Nef, the actor chosen for the role.

“I don’t have a problem with the trans person being an actor,” Rubin says.

But “there’s a gajillion girls out there who would love to be in the 'Barbie' movie as a girl, so why do they go out of their way to have a biological boy play a girl who’s supposed to be completely a girl in the 'Barbie' movie unless they’re trying to confuse kids?” he asks.
