Turns out, Barbie has a surname and the internet is shook
No, it’s not ‘Doll’.
We all know who Barbie is but it appears not many of us knew she had a last name. Or that she had siblings.
Until of course, the famous doll’s official Twitter account posted a Sibling Day message on April 13.
Many were confused, with one Twitter user asking “When the hell did Barbie get a last name?”
