When you think of Barbie there is clearly only ONE actress who could pull it off. Barbie is tall, thin, tan, elegant and graceful so obviously the actress who would best fit into those pink, plastic, high-heel shoes is Amy Schumer!
Wait, what? No.
No no no.
Well, this sounds perfectly awful. https://t.co/1xeJ2Yze7b

Vomit-inducing even. Awful. Whose bright idea was this anyway?

Sony. Psh. Sony has lost its ever-loving mind. Unless their live-action movie on Barbie is like an opposite thing where in real life Barbie is a chubby, angry, man-hating, not-funny comedienne who wears way too much blush and could stand to lose a pound or two.
- 'Hell of a take'! Water main break leaves thousands in East Harlem without running water and NYT editorial board's Mara Gay knows exactly who's to blame
- British tea company is caught in a political firestorm without so much as making a comment - On the positive side, not just the US that is politically hysterical!
Oh settle down, that’s not a fat joke, just the reality of Barbie. She is like UBER skinny … and Amy, well, she isn’t. *shrug*
They're making this movie entirely so we can get a thousand "RIGHTWING MEDIA LASH OUT AT AMY SCHUMER AS BARBIE" hot takes https://t.co/VCGMdvNvRf

Exactly. Any minute now, Jezebel is going to write some piece on the hate-filled Right and their unrealistic stereotypes of the perfect woman hating on poor Amy Schumer because she is going to play Barbie.
Amy Schumer as Barbie, 'cause Danny Trejo was busy.

Let me be the first to say that I am really, really looking forward to not seeing this movie. https://t.co/AyRMeheClE

Get in line.
When you read that Amy Schumer is going to star in a live-action 'Barbie' movie https://t.co/lnIW6k55Vk

We had a rather similar reaction ourselves.
Hell no, to the no no … Nope.
Amy Schumer is to Barbie what Michael Moore is to GI Joe.

Amy Schumer playing Barbie is like Seth Rogan playing He-Man.

Or Seth playing Green Hornet … oh wait.
