Burger King is known to have collaborated with the Stranger Things, SpongeBob SquarePants, and Spiderman franchises in the past. On July 12, the brand introduced an all-new Barbie-themed combo in honor of the Barbie live-action film, which is scheduled to release on July 21.
Burger King Brazil announced the limited-edition Barbie meal with a pink theme on social media this week. The meal includes pink burgers, pink donuts, and pink milkshakes, and has sent netizens into a frenzy.
However, not everyone was happy with the partnership and many individuals began criticizing the chain's decision to manufacture a pink burger that resembled "Pepto Bismol."

The blush pink meal is made up of a burger, a shake, and a donut. Burger King Brazil's burger with pink sauce has become the talk of the town online. The restaurant is now offering a combo at all Brazilian Burger King locations, with prices starting at R$36.90 ($7.99). The pink milkshake will cost R$21.90 ($4.55).

Although some netizens wished to try the Barbie-themed burger, the announcement also attracted a large number of trolls.
