- Matt Gaetz and his wife, Ginger, channeled MAGA Ken and Barbie at an event celebrating the movie.
- Ginger said she didn’t like the film because of Ryan Gosling’s Ken and his “beta energy.”
- Ginger also slammed the movie for not addressing “any notion of faith or family.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz and his wife Ginger went out to see the “Barbie” movie this week in matching pink outfits, but one half of the couple didn’t like the flick very much.
Ginger Gaetz, who married the Florida congressman in 2021, tweeted a photo of them posing on a pink carpet on July 17. The duo was at the Aspen Security Forum’s “Barbie”-themed party, and was photographed with other similarly pink-clad politicians, per Semafor.
But the love of all things pink and “Barbie” ended with the outfits. Ginger took to Twitter on Tuesday to share her review of the movie, advocating for people to give it a miss altogether.
“The 2023 Barbie movie, unfortunately, neglects to address any notion of faith or family, and tries to normalize the idea that men and women can’t collaborate positively (yuck),” she tweeted.
She added that she wasn’t a big fan of Ryan Gosling’s “low-t” — or low testosterone — performance as Ken. In a separate tweet on Tuesday, she said she thinks Gosling’s “got major beta energy” in this role.
Thinking about watching the Barbie movie?
I’d recommend sticking to getting outfit inspiration and skipping the theater. Here’s why:
The Barbie I grew up with was a representation of limitless possibilities, embracing diverse careers and feminine empowerment.

Matt Gaetz, on the other hand, has been bucking the MAGA trend and saying that nothing, including political views on trans people, should stop people from seeing Robbie play “Barbie.”
He’s also called the actress a solid “ten,” describing her appearance as “not mid” at a July TPUSA event.
Either way, we have the “Barbie” movie to thank for these tweets about Matt Gaetz’s “Big Kenergy.” Thanks Barbie!
