Almost like making a joke of many people’s childhood, Barbie’s official Twitter account shared a picture of our favourite doll with her siblings, with the caption: “Happy #SiblingsDay, from the Roberts sisters!” In case, it still has not dawned on some of you yet, then, yes, many Internet users have been losing it ever since they saw the tweet because this is the first time they have been told that Barbie has a surname and it is Roberts. Soon after, the micro-blogging site was amok with tweets of people who wondered why it took so long for them to know this vital piece of information, while others were quick to resort to jokes. Others quickly turned to the Internet to validate this information and well, ended up digging up a rather fascinating Wikipedia page of the doll.

One of the Twitter users made it easier for everyone else and shared Barbie’s full name — Barbara Millicent Roberts (yes, she has a middle name too!) Others found it too hard to believe that her surname was not “Doll or Girl”. “I demand to see a birth certificate,” “I’m uncomfortable with this information,” tweeted the others, while another Twitter user (with Roberts as surname) claimed being related to the doll.

This is the tweet from Barbie’s official handle that started it all.

Here are some other responses it garnered thereafter.
