Warner Bros. Apologizes After ‘Barbenheimer’ Posts Sparks Backlash from Studio’s Japan Unit

TOKYO — The Japanese distributor of the Warner Bros. movie “Barbie” has apologized for its U.S. parent company’s reaction to social media posts about the “Barbenheimer” blitz that combined images of Barbie and a mushroom cloud. The memes triggered criticisms in Japan for what many described as minimizing the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
