Don’t Go Destroying Your Ankles Doing the Barbie Foot Challenge!

There’s a scene in the “Barbie” trailer where Margot Robbie steps out of her heels and her feet stay arched . . . just like an actual Barbie doll’s.  And so of course, people are recreating it on social media.

Even Chrissy Teigen got in on the act. See below!

There haven’t been any reports of an epidemic of sprained or broken ankles, but so-called “experts” are already setting off the alarm.  A foot doctor in Florida says, quote, “If someone attempts the pose once or twice, they will likely be ok and produce a great TikTok video. However, if attempting the pose and stride over long periods, there are some risks involved.  The ankle is unstable, which can lead to ligament sprains and injuries, commonly seen with high heel use.”

For the record, Margot was holding onto a bar off-screen to steady herself when she did it.  Also, there was double-sided tape on the floor so her shoes would stay in place.

There’s already been some REAL controversy over the movie, thanks to a scene featuring a map of Southeast Asia.  It depicts a demarcation line that was set by China, even though it’s disputed by other countries.

In fact, Vietnam is BANNING the movie because of it, and the Philippines might follow suit.
