Shakira Urged To Resist Backlash Following ‘Barbie’ Movie Comments

Prominent Latin singer Shakira was recently urged to resist backlash following her comments about the “Barbie” movie.

During a recent interview with Allure, Shakira said her sons “absolutely hated” the film.
“They felt that it was emasculating. And I agree, to a certain extent,” the singer added.

“I’m raising two boys. I want them to feel powerful too [while] respecting women. I like pop culture when it attempts to empower women without robbing men of their possibility to be men, to also protect and provide.”

Shakira, who is the mother of Milan, 11, and Sasha, 9, said he believes men and women each play a significant role in society.

“We complement each other, and that complement should not be lost,” she continued.
The Latin musical icon emphasized the importance of sharing responsibilities when Allure host Patricia Alfonso Tortolani asked, “Just because a woman can do it all doesn’t mean she should?”

In response, Shakira said women should “share the load” with others who can help.
“Why not share the load with people who deserve to carry it, who have a duty to carry it as well?” the singer replied.

Shakira’s comments have garnered massive backlash on social media, but many, particularly conservatives, found the singer’s comments to be refreshing, according to Townhall.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, conservative commentator Robby Starbuck celebrated Shakira’s comments about the “Barbie” film. He said that although the singer is facing criticism, she should not apologize.

“Shakira nailed the Barbi movie. She’ll probably now face pressure to apologize for this but she shouldn’t. Civilizations die when you emasculate men,” Starbuck wrote, before citing Shakira’s remarks.

Conservative television personality Rachel Campos-Duffy also agreed with Shakira’s comments, pointing out that Hispanic women like the singer have a similar point of view concerning films like “Barbie.”

Campos-Duffy said that Hispanic women are confident and “hard-working” individuals “who fully embrace their femininity & maternity role (largest % of stay at home moms) while loving men & desiring them to flourish within their masculinity and provide for their families.”

British journalist Piers Morgan applauded Shakira for supporting masculine men.
