The new “Man Bun” Ken doll comes with shirt, shoes, and keys to Barbie’s car that he’s driving until he “gets back on his feet again.”

Apparently Mattel has designed a Ken doll with a man bun. What’s next? A Ken doll wearing a romper?

Man Bun Ken comes with an acoustic guitar, a pack of cigarettes, and a book of love poems.

There’s now a Ken Doll with a man bun. But he doesn’t have a neck beard or smell like B.O. So he’s still as fake as the original Barbie.

I’m so down with the Ken doll with a man bun. Next I need manspreading Ken

The last thing we need in this world is a Ken doll with a man bun.

Scanning the initial reactions, there were just a couple people in support of the look, including one from Steven King:

Barbie’s bff, Ken, now comes with a man bun or cornrows. You go with your bad self, Kenny.

They have created man bun Ken dolls. Today is a great day.
