Ben Shapiro has set a Barbie doll on fire during his excoriating 43-minute long scathing review of the movie – where he rages against the movie starring Margot Robbie.
The Conservative pundit, 39, said that he was forced to go and watch the pink-filled Greta Gerwig film, and afterwards claimed it was a ‘flaming piece of dogs**t.’
To show his full distaste, he threw the Barbie doll into the trash can, before lighting a match and setting it on fire.
He wrote pages of angry notes about the movie – and said that he wasted two hours of his precious time watching Barbie. Shapiro’s review has already been watched 689,000 times.

During the rant, he said: ‘Let me begin with my generalized assessment of movie. This movie is not just a piece of s**t. This movie is a flaming piece of dogs**t piled atop an entire dumpster on fire piled atop a landfill filled with dogs**t.
‘It is one of the worst films I have ever seen, on every possible level it is a horrific movie.’
He did say that production design and the outfits were nice – but said that the film was clearly made for mothers and their eight year old daughters.
‘Conceptually the movie is a s**tshow.
‘The basic sort of premise of the film, politically speaking, is that men and women are on two sides of the divide, and they hate each other.
‘And literally, the only way you can have a happy world is if the women ignore the men and the men ignore the women. That seems to be the final outcome of this film.
‘I was trying to separate this into problems with plot and problems with character and problems with the politics and so on.

The Margot Robbie, 33, movie has already logged the biggest opening day of 2023 with $70.5 in ticket sales on Friday
Shapiro, however, was mocked online for seemingly dressing up as Ken when he went to begrudgingly watch the movie in theaters
‘But they’re all intertwined because the thing is just a mess. It doesn’t make any sense. Plot-wise, it makes no sense. Character-wise, it makes no sense.’
Shapiro, however, was mocked online for seemingly dressing up as Ken when he went to begrudgingly watch the movie in theaters.
Wearing a black t shirt, tucked into black jeans with a black belt, Shapiro wrote: ‘My producers dragged me to see ‘Barbie’ and it was one of the most woke movies I have ever seen.
‘My full review of this flaming garbage heap of a film will be out on my YouTube channel tomorrow at 10am ET.’
The Barbenheimer weekend is underway and two of the most anticipated films of the summer, Barbie and Oppenheimer, are on track to break multiple box office records.
The Margot Robbie, 33, movie has already logged the biggest opening day of 2023 with $70.5 in ticket sales on Friday.
The Cillian Murphy, 47, film, by comparison, took in $33 million for the third biggest take of the year.
Movie goers are turning out in droves for both films, with many opting to see both in a double feature.
This renewed interest in going to movie theaters is expected to bring in an estimated $308 million over the three-day period.
Greta Gerwig’s, 39, bubble gum pink movie is on track to make more than $161 million over its opening weekend.
Barbie is also on track to take the title for the biggest opening weekend of any film directed by a woman.
