This Little Girl Has Something To Say About Black Widow Avengers Action Figures [VIDEO]

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Hey, everyone…Riley seems angry. Should we be concerned she’ll Hulk-out? Perhaps. She takes issue with the lack of Black Widow action figures spinning out of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. And with good reason! That’s straight up…well, you know what, I’m not going to curse in a post about this adorable little girl speaking her mind about sexism. I will, however, say if I had a daughter, I’m pretty sure this is what she’d sound like. YOU GUYS, it’s like Black Widow doesn’t even EXIST!

But here’s the good news, Riley, a Black Widow Avengers action figure DOES exist. I’ve just never seen one in an actual store. But don’t worry, we’re working on it…

[Update: Thanks to eagle-eye commenter Myomorph for realizing this is the same little lady we posted a while back at an even younger age, speaking about gender issues in marketing.
