SAN DIEGO - A photo of an iconic American doll is creating a social media firestorm.
The site, Plus Size Modeling, posted a photoshopped image of a plus-sized Barbie doll on its Facebook page with the caption: "Should toy companies start making plus-sized dolls?"
The post has already netted more than 39,000 likes and 4,000 comments.
But many people are outraged, saying an "obese" doll would promote unhealthiness, rather than "realness."
