Director Ava Duvernay’s barbie doll went on sale on the Barbie website and is already sold out. The Selma director was just a little suprised, she tweeted, “Sold out on Barbie collection, I’m told. More available at Amazon. What the hell is going on? #bananas #nuts #whoa.” The doll sold out after a whopping 17 minutes.
Barbie announced in April they will be making six one-of-a-kind barbies based on several women from Variety magazine’s Power of Women Luncheon, which included Ava, actress Kristin Chenoweth and fashion magazine editor Eva Chen.
