We can’t wait for this.
This weekend, it was announced that a live-action Barbie movie is on it’s way.
However, the premise won’t be the typical dream-land bubble gum pink story we may have been expecting.
Instead the film will focus on Barbie getting kicked out of ‘Barbieland’ for not being perfect enough and not fitting the mould.
Actress and comedian Amy Schumer is reportedly set to play the famous Barbie role, which we are very excited about.
The movie is still in its very early stages but the PG movie is set to come out in the summer of 2018 according to Deadline.
However, since this casting news was announced there has been an influx of trolls abusing Amy about being cast in the role.
Amy Schumer was cast as Barbie's fat, loud mouth nemesis right? No? SHE is playing Barbie? hahaha! Is this a horror film?

@amyschumer is way too fat to play Barbie. Maybe she could play 3 Barbies

Amy Schumer as Barbie? More of the elites plan to brainwash young girls into thinking being fat is ok. Guess what? Guys don't like fat girls

While there is sadly plenty of nasty fat-shaming abuse, many others have stated their support in casting Amy as the iconic doll.

I know absolutely nothing about Amy Schumer…but I do know that I'd rather my daughter looked up to someone her normal size than Barbie!

Really? @amyschumer as Barbie? She's certainly pretty enough. Has tons of talent. Why not? She would be a great Barbie.
