Move aside, gay Tinky Winky! We’ve got a new child’s toy for people to freak out over: Possessed Yoga Barbie. Our favorite doll has gotten a lot of heat over the years. Sometimes it’s for her unhealthy body standards or her distaste for math, but this latest controversy was uncovered by the keen eyes of Christian influencer Yasmeen Suri. Yasmeen came across a Yoga Barbie doll at her local Target and immediately sensed some bad vibes emanating from deep within her plastic body.
Possessed Yoga Barbie a.k.a Breathe with me Barbie guides kids through five types of meditations. You simply press a button on her and a recording of a few simple breathing exercises plays. While you might consider this to be Teddy Ruxpin for the new age, Yasmeen saw it for what it truly was…Satan! via Newsweek:
Yasmeen Suri shared a photo of the doll in a cross-legged pose on May 3. The Barbie was sealed in a plastic box that read “Breathe with me Barbie” and advertised sound effects to “5 guided meditations.” Suri’s Facebook post has garnered 56,000 reactions and 36,000 comments.
“‘Yoga Barbie’ is at Target on the shelf,” wrote Suri. “Satan always comes as appearing innocent. He will never come with horns and a pitchfork.”
The Christian speaker and author, who has written books including Beautiful Deception and The Fake God Reference Guide, went on to claim that yoga and Hinduism were inextricable.
“You cannot separate the poses from the religion,” she said. “Each pose is designed to invoke a Hindu deity in the spirit realm. I have seen children get possessed by demons.”
Yasmeen says in her post that Satan is using Barbie to indoctrinate and destroy your children. So the next time you’re in Target and you hear the wailing of a thousand damned souls coming from the toy aisle, it’s just Barbie. Make sure to steer clear. And since she posted this on the internet, Yasmeen was quickly roasted.
The internet flocked to her Facebook post, with quips and wisecracks flooding the comments section.
“My daughter has recently been doing yoga, it’s been really good for her. Enjoying the red tint in her eyes too, brings a nice ambience to the room,” wrote Trudie Macfarlane.
“I want my money back! I never got demon possessed at yoga class. What a rip off!” added Jaime Elliott.
If Yasmeen is terrified of young hot blondes that are into yoga, then I have some bad news for her. America is already going to hell in a handbasket. You can’t throw a prayer bead without hitting a 20 to 30-something that hosts a yoga class!
