American Girl's Doll of the Year Is Already Causing Controversy Online



American Girl, the toy company that makes a line of popular dolls, released its annual Girl of the Year for 2021. The doll's name is Kira Bailey, and she is an aspiring koala conservationist living in Australia.

But the doll community online is apparently pretty pissed! Why?

  • The doll has lesbian aunts
  • The doll is blonde and white, and there have only been 5 POC Girls of the Year (there have been 20 total)
  • The doll's story may involve traveling to Australia during COVID
