Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you may be fully aware that Barbie-mania has well and truly gripped the globe.
If you’re yet to watch it, an official synopsis explains: “Barbie and Ken are having the time of their lives in the colorful and seemingly perfect world of Barbie Land. However, when they get a chance to go to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans.”
The movie has been a smash at the box office and has earned Gerwig a place in the history books as it became the highest-grossing movie by a female director.
The craze seems to have taken off over on TikTok, where one user said bluntly: “Take your boyfriend to Barbie if he doesn’t understand the movie… dump him.”
A fellow TikToker warned: “If you’re dating a man and he doesn’t like the Barbie movie, you need to break up with him.”
To which a woman replied: “Agreed. He is not Kenough for you.”
Someone else suggested it could be a good way to test if your other half is really right for you, posting: “I think taking your boyfriend to Barbie should be your relationship test to decide if he's a good long-term partner.”
Meanwhile over on Reddit, women have been sharing similar thoughts.
“I feel like I’m the a**hole for letting the Barbie movie affect my relationship and the way I see my boyfriend,” one woman wrote.
“Friends have been telling me that I shouldn’t let it alter the way I view my boyfriend because our relationship is really good and healthy.
“I’ve been also sending him nonstop TikToks and Tweets about the Barbie movie and saying that men wouldn’t understand and that if my bf doesn’t understand then I should rethink our whole relationship, which is what I’ve been doing lately.”
One woman took it a step further, revealing that she’d actually dumped her boyfriend after he refused to wear pink to go watch Barbie, saying that it would have ‘meant a lot’ to her and ‘showed that he supports me’.
Be careful out there, guys!
