'Mexican Barbie' sparks controversy
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The new 'Mexican Barbie' doll is sparking outrage, with some critics even calling it an offensive depiction of Mexican culture.
The Mexican Barbie is from Mattel's new "Dolls of the World" series.
The doll comes complete with a fiesta dress and a Chihuahua dog tucked under her arm -- and a passport.
Some Mexican journalists are mocking the doll. One said, "Play with your Barbie Mexicana and don't even think of calling her undocumented."
A Mattel spokeswoman says the Barbie was created to help foster learning and appreciation of different countries and cultures.
