Video: Taking a broader view on the controversy over Mexico Barbie

LatinaLista — With the tagline "Multiple sources, a broader view," the online video news site Newsy tackles the raging controversy over Mattel's latest Barbie addition — Mexico Barbie.

Immediately criticized for being too stereotypical, the doll is attracting all the wrong attention. Maybe that's why Mattel has removed it from its online shop.

Outfitted in a traditional Mexican dress, complete with a Chihuahua, the doll angered many because of something that all dolls in this 'World' collection carry — a passport.

The Newsy coverage presents a variety of different news angles on the issue but all of them lead to one question — Are Latinos overly sensitive on the issue of passports and Mexican dolls?
