The lifestyle influencer formerly known as Bunny Barbie announced she changed her name to avoid legal action from Mattel, Inc, the toy company well-known for owning brands like Barbie and Hot Wheels.
The TikTok star told Passionfruit she received a cease-and-desist from Mattel, asking her to stop using the name Bunny Barbie. Her new username is now @bunnyhedaya.
Bunny made the announcement to her 2.1 million followers in a TikTok on Dec. 15.
The content creator, who used Barbie as part of her name throughout the entirety of her social media career, said the letter came as a shock to her.
