Even Barbie is snapping out of her dream world and mobilizing against Trumpism. During the past several months, comedian and “World Champion” Judah Friedlander, of 30 Rock fame, has been taking this woke Barbie to protests. “If the only people protesting are the ones who are the direct victims of injustice,” Activist Barbie explains in her Insta bio, “then progress will either never happen or will take much longer.” She was back in action this weekend, during anti-Trump, anti-racism marches that took over the streets of Manhattan. Today, she’s at the UN and Trump World Tower, rallying against war with North Korea.
Activist Barbie went to her first action back in September, after an awkward talk with Ken.
From there, it was off to a Black Lives Matter protest in Union Square, in the wake of the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina.
I got to meet some very cool people at the #BlackLivesMatter protest in #unionsquare last night. Here I am with my new friends @taquirahthompson & @kamikazekyle Remember, change and progress don't just happen, you have to make it happen. I would guess there were a thousand people at the protest. I wish there were a million people at the protest. Everyone needs to stand up for evwryone's rights and support each other.

Not everyone is on board with Activist Barbie. In response to the above Insta, one commenter accused her of fetishizing Muslims and Mexicans.
“You’re talking to a doll,” another pointed out.
