There's about to be anew Barbie doll on the shelves, with flowers on her dress and a skull painted on her face.

It's the Dia de los Muertos Barbie, or Day of the Dead Barbie. The collectible doll, which will be released on Thursday, celebrates the annual Mexican festival, in which people honor their departed loved ones.

It seems some are not happy with the choice from the popular retailer. Mattel responds to back lash accusing the retailer of "cultural appropriation" by saying they are just making others more aware of the traditional hispanic holiday.
