The Japanese Barbie Twitter account has responded to the insensitive tweet made by the American Barbie account in response to a Barbenheimer meme. The Barbenheimer meme started due to the release of the film “Barbie” and Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” sharing the same release date. The American Barbie account had tweeted, “It’s going to be a summer to remember” with kissing face and hearts emojis. The Japanese account condemned this tweet and called for appropriate action to be taken regarding the American account’s response.
In a translated statement, the Japanese Barbie account expressed their disappointment with the American account’s actions. They mentioned that the #Barbenheimer movement was not an official campaign, and they believe that the inconsiderate action of the American account caused offense to fans. They took the situation seriously and called on the American headquarters to take appropriate action. They also apologized to those who were offended by the series of inconsiderate reactions.
The response from the Japanese Barbie account comes after Warner Bros. Japan expressed regret for any offense caused by the original tweet. The situation is still developing, and more information is expected to be released.
Overall, the response from the Japanese Barbie account highlights the importance of being sensitive and considerate on social media. It shows that even official accounts need to be mindful of their words and actions to avoid causing offense or controversy.
