A Katniss Barbie and Standing Up to PETA (not Peeta)

Tired of overly pretty, brainless, wimpy Barbie? Feel like reenacting the struggles of Panem with Katniss? Want to relive the Hunger Games?
Apparently, Mattel is introducing Katniss Everdeen as a doll! (The toy-makers somehow captured her look and essence, didn’t they?)
On an unrelated note, the actress who played Katniss, Jennifer Lawrence, recently fought back against PETA in a Rolling Stone interview. The animal-rights organization has criticized the actress for her on-screen depiction of hunting and squirrel skinning. (After all, the movie could’ve been a lot shorter had she just starved to death!)
This was her refreshing response:
“I should say it wasn’t real, for PETA. But screw PETA.”
