Albany Taps Controversial Jelly Barbie as Brand Ambassador, Sparking Debate

Its surprising that, Albany has signed Jelly Barbie as their newest brand ambassador in a deal reportedly worth $15,000. The announcement comes hot on the heels of the heated controversy involving Barbie and the infamous Spar Lady, a public spat that made headlines and caused a stir on social media.

Although Barbie and the Spar Lady have since made amends, the public remains divided on Albany’s choice of ambassador. Critics argue that the brand’s decision to align with Barbie, despite her recent public controversy, sends mixed messages. They point out that just weeks ago, Albany refused to endorse or financially support a young girl whose video went viral, leading to a noticeable increase in sales for the company.

The young girl’s family, whose viral video featured Albany products, claimed they reached out to the company for support but were met with silence. The contrast between Albany’s treatment of the young girl and its lucrative deal with Barbie has left many questioning the company’s priorities.

Albany, however, seems unfazed by the backlash. In a brief statement, the company said it believes in second chances and wants to work with influencers who can “add value” to their brand. But many on social media are not buying it, with some even calling for a boycott of Albany products.

The controversy surrounding the deal continues to generate buzz, with industry experts suggesting that Albany may have underestimated the power of public opinion. As the story unfolds, it remains to be seen whether the partnership with Jelly Barbie will bring the brand the positive exposure it hoped for, or if the backlash will ultimately tarnish Albany’s reputation.
