Woman broke up with her boyfriend after he got offended over the Barbie movie
| Last updated
The Barbie movie has been turning a lot of heads since its release, with critics praising its feminist themes.
Some fans have even been using the movie as a gauge for the men they are dating, to see how they react to it. The combination of amazing sparkles and surprisingly moving moments has garnered widespread praise.
However, it seems that for one couple at least, the movie has revealed some unpleasant traits in a - now ex - boyfriend. The couple had gone to see it together, with the woman taking to Reddit to post about what happened next.
After seeing the movie, she explained that she could tell he had not been impressed by the film's message. This saw both the Barbies and the Kens (and Alan) freed from the shackles of patriarchy and how it can negatively impact everybody in different ways.
However, it seems that her boyfriend had not reacted well to the film. When they got back to the car they spoke about it.
She said: "He told me that he was really offended by the movie and said that it was the kind of thing I should have watched with my girlfriends and not him. I understood where he was coming from but i’m not going to even start explaining why I disagreed."
It wasn't the first time this had happened either. She added: "We have been having problems with his weird comments about women, the LGBTQ+ community, and other stuff. He would deem it 'btch sht'. maybe it was a long time coming but this was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
"I was tired of having to always deal with his attitude and disrespect and was also maybe on this girl-power high. So I told him it was over."
People on the platform appeared to thoroughly agree with her decision to end the relationship.
One referenced Barbie, commenting: "Sorry he lacked the Kenergy to step up when he needed to. I know it hurts right now, but you absolutely did the right thing."
Another wrote: "Your BF is 23yo, he's an adult, you are NOT his Mother, you asked him to leave, he's thrown a huge drama queen strop over it and 'disappeared' he will show up at some time.
"He's currently playing the emotional blackmail card to win you back! Who in their right mind would want a relationship with someone like that."
A third posted: "He sounds like he was an awful person. It’s a movie ffs. If he was so deeply offended by a movie with feminist themes then that’s his problem, and it shouldn’t be yours."
