Barbie is making waves after crossing the $1 billion mark, and with that, Ben Shapiro is in the spotlight for his failed prediction of Greta Gerwig’s film. The conservative political conservator posted a YouTube video last month following the release of Barbie, predicting the movie would “absolutely fall off a cliff.”

The 39-year-old uploaded a 43-minute tirade to YouTube with the hopes of inciting large-scale protests against the PG-13 film, starring Margot Robbie. In the video, he is also seen burning Barbie toys before launching into a slew of complaints about the film. Shapiro said,

“Week one this thing is going to clean up at the domestic box office. My prediction: it’s going to just absolutely fall off a cliff after that.”

He further added,

“The repeat business on this movie is going to be non-existent because it was written by two people who are so smug and self-satisfied in Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, that they have no audience.”

As Barbie crossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office, becoming the first film solely directed by a woman to hit the milestone, fans mocked the American columnist for his failed prediction. A user reshared the 39-year-old’s Barbie prediction clip on Twitter and wrote, “Contender for worst prediction of the year, courtesy of @benshapiro.”

The failed prediction of Barbie has led Ben Shapiro to hide his face and stay away from the spotlight as fans are calling him out.
