Maybe that is the point? they want to ruin as many established names as they can so that they can try to manipulate the next generation as much as the can.

My guess is it is their emergency plan. they know that left leaning ideologies are on the wane, and they need to sow the seeds for a comeback in 10 to 15 years.

They have a plan? I thought it was just pussification of everything with a broad brush.

Does anyone else feel that she was deliberately chosen because this would have been the outcome?
You become a "Fat-shamer" from just saying "I don't think she's right for the role".

I completely agree, they are totally intent on not learning their lesson from Ghostbusters.

The only difference then was that the mantra was you were a "sexist" if you hated the film.

That is EXACTLY why she was cast. Why would you cast a thin blonde girl that has Barbie's body type when you can cast a manatee with a wig and push your HAES bullshit while telling everyone that shes beautiful and you're a piece of shit for thinking she isn't. God damn there's no end with these people.

Amy Schumer is too fat to even be cast as the voice of Barbie in an animated movie.

Having her play a live action version of the Barbie character is completely absurd.

They may as well cast a 400 lbs black quadriplegic transsexual with an eye patch.

Don't worry, Hollywood wouldn't know an original idea if it bit everyone who lives and works there in the ass at the same time.

I would watch that movie on opening night. Might even cosplay and get shit-faced before the premier.

The man choosing to leave over a lack of attraction is basically rape in 2016.

The current year version of Barbie is a strong independent woman who don't need no man, who balloons up to Amy Schumer levels of fat but is still entitled to receive male sexual attention. Also Barbie's clinical obesity replaces health and thinness as an ideal for girls to live up to.

But remember, leaving a man over lack of attraction is empowering. Ohhh! And he better have a good job! Because lazy men are trash. Oh and he's got to buy your dinner! I know woman are equal thats why men must always pay for dinner! If he makes you buy your own dinner hes sexist!

I like that both sides of this seem intent on making the discussion about how fat and ugly she is

If a 100 lb black man wanted to play He-Man, I would say "No, that's inaccurate to the source material, stop it."

If a 350 lb fat woman with piggy eyes who once raped a man in college wanted to play Barbie, I would say "NO, THAT'S INACCURATE TO THE SOURCE MATERIAL, STOP IT."

If she wanted to play Miss Piggy in a Muppets movie, I'd be totally fine with that.

Wanting accurate portrayal of characters is not body shaming, it's accuracy. Same reason why I don't approve of black people cosplaying white or asian characters. Same reason blacks get all uppity about blackface.
