Today I learned that the reason Ken exists is because some losers didn't like Barbie being single.
Sometimes, you just got to laugh at humanity.In a Vogue profile for the upcoming Barbie movie, Gerwig shared that Barbie, who was created in 1959, was tied to Ken two years later, and it was a direct response to letters from the public yelling about Barbie being single.
Yes, you read that right. People were furious that a plastic doll did not have a boyfriend, so they created the greatest himbo to walk the planet: Ken.
