The Barbie movie has been banned in Lebanon.

This new fantasy comedy movie is co-written and directed by Greta Gerwig. It stars Margot Robbie as the titular character and Ryan Gosling as Ken. “Barbie and Ken are having the time of their lives in the colorful and seemingly perfect world of Barbie Land,” reads the synopsis. “However, when they get a chance to go to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans.”

Lebanon’s culture minister Mohammad Mortada has moved to ban the film from premiering in the country, claiming the movie “promoted homosexuality” and contradicted values related to faith and morality. This is an interesting decision, as the movie does not depict any explicit LGBTQ+ relationships.
