News

Hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife! To add to their list of quirky and mildly inappropriate Barbie dolls, Mattel’s recently premiered a “Video Girl Barbie” which in the FBI’s (yep, the FBI) mind serves as possible “child pornography production method.” The feds are warning parents that the cyber sex Barb includes a camera lens hidden in her necklace, a small monitor and a USB port on her back.

Um.

Mattel recently released a statement regarding their product #FAIL:

“The FBI is not reporting that anything has happened. Steve Dupre from the FBI Sacramento field office has confirmed there have been no incidents of this doll being used as anything other than its intent. Mattel products are designed with children and their best interests in mind. Many of Mattel’s employees are parents themselves and we understand the importance of child safety — it is our number one priority.”

Hey at least “video girl” doesn’t refer to an ass naked black Barbie with Nicki Minaj proportions.
