A few short hours ago, word spread of a new, diverse line of Ken dolls to accompany Barbie on her ever-more enlightened journeys across rural America. And one of these models happens to sport a man bun, or top knot. Now, this may not seem like a controversial choice, but trust us: It is. Once the Internet got ahold of this crucial piece of information (and the photos to go with it) there was no stopping the attendant avalanche of memes. Behold, Man Bun Ken was born, and he cannot and WILL NOT be stopped. Don’t believe us? Just ask Twitter.
