MARC MARON SAYS MEN WHO ARE UPSET ABOUT ‘BARBIE’ ARE ‘INSECURE BABIES:’ Marc Maron had some things to say about the men on the right who are complaining that the Barbie movie is too “woke.” The Glow actor shared a video to TikTok on Tuesday (August 1st) and said he thought the film was a “f—king masterpiece.” He added, “The comedy about men is inspired and the fact that certain men took offense to the point where they, you know, tried to build a grift around it in terms of their narrative as right-wing **** is so embarrassing for them. I mean, so embarrassing for them. Any dude that can’t take those hits in that movie, they’ve really got to look in their pants and decide what they’re made of. I mean, Jesus Christ, what a bunch of f—king insecure babies.”
