After the Barbie film’s release raked in over $1 billion in its opening weekend, a large number of men have spoken out claiming the film is “Woke” and “Anti-men.” Joe Rogan has recently come out with a refreshing new take that’s worth thinking about.
A World Immersed in Pink
Since the release of the Greta Gerwig film a month ago, the world has been awash in shades of pink, much to the dismay of some men online.
Record-Breaking Success and a Message
In just over two weeks, the Barbie film raked in over $1 billion globally, while also shining a light on women’s struggles, earning it both praise and backlash.
Mixed Reactions About Feminist Themes
Some viewers felt the film was ‘anti-men’ due to Ken’s lack of leadership in comparison to Barbie.
Social Media Erupts
Social media became a battleground for men who took the movie’s stance as an attack on their gender.
Shapiro’s Outrage Revealed
Public figure Ben Shapiro even posted a 43-minute long review video slamming the film for Ken’s lack of masculinity, claiming it was “woke.”
“Flaming Heap of Woke Garbage”
Shapiro posted his video on Twitter, captioning it, “My producers dragged me to see ‘Barbie’ and it was one of the most woke movies I have ever seen. My full review of this flaming garbage heap of a film will be out on my YouTube channel tomorrow at 10am ET.”
Joe Rogan Steps In
Podcaster Joe Rogan, who recently watched the film, expressed his confusion at the backlash when chatting to his guest, Post Malone.
A Call to Maturity
Rogan had a clear message for the critics, “A lot of people are upset about the Barbie movie, and I left perplexed. But a lot of it is about the patriarchy, and it’s a comedy, it’s a comedy about dolls.”
An Attack on Dorks?
Rogan claimed that the film isn’t an attack on men, it’s actually an attack on “dorks.”
Rogan dismissed claims that the movie is “woke”, asking the question that we’re all wondering, “How did people get outraged at that?”
Lack of Masculinity
Some men have complained that Ken isn’t masculine enough, with some calling him a “Beta-Male.”
Ken’s Hilarious Revelation
During Barbie’s mission to discover the meaning of her existence, Ken travels to the real world and hilariously discovers a society where men are dominant, changing his views on masculinity.
More Rogan Wisdom
Rogan offered a fresh perspective, suggesting, “They think it’s a super woke movie. But it’s also a movie about how Barbies are the dolls that everyone cares about, and Ken is just an accessory, which is real.”
“When you bring these things into a movie, you make them real life Barbieland, that’s how they have to be, because that’s how it is in the real world,” Rogan passionately argued.
