An ugly side of Barbie/Merliah I've never seen before
24 December 2019 | by august-18200See all my reviews

The only thing that bothered me the most was that when Merliah was talking with her friends and Zuma at the beach and was angry about Oceana and her dreams of becoming a champion surfer and attempting to smash her necklace, it was really an ugly sight for me to see. It was a side of her I've never seen before which was why I do my best to avoid this scene.
