Black Canary Barbie is Filth?

Black Canary Barbie is available this September, anyone who wants to send me one for my birthday is welcome to, I just want to say that upfront. 

Religious group Christian Voice said: "Barbie has always been on the tarty side and this is taking it too far. A children’s doll in sexually suggestive clothing is irresponsible — it’s filth."

Don’t they realize that making this statement will almost insure the sell-out of Black Canary Barbie? I bet Mattle will handle the sell out better than Apple did with IPhones. Black Canary Barbie is based on the DC comic book hero. Mattle lost a lot of money on Speed Racer, they had to do something!


So, What do you think? Is BC Barbie wrong? Would you buy it for your kid? Would you buy it for another adult? Is this sublte AntiEntrepreneurism working? Or is this just some lame PR to get sales heated up?
