Human Ken Reacts To Meeting Human Barbie

Posted: Updated:

How KEN he be so dismissive?

Fresh off of GQ's alarming interview with "Human Barbie," Valeria Lukyanova, the magazine's website posted quotes from a brief interview with Human Ken, Justin Jedlica.

He met her at a photo shoot and had this to say about the apparent racist:

"I don't really get her. I don't get why people think she's so interesting," Jedlica said. "She has extensions. She wears stage makeup. She's an illusionist."

It's unclear if this interview took place before or after the GQ Magazine article on Lukyanova, but what was most noteworthy about the aspiring breatharian's chat with GQ were her comments on race. She blamed the increase in plastic surgery on "race-mixing"

"For example, a Russian marries an Armenian," Lukyanova told GQ. "They have a kid, a cute girl, but she has her dad's nose. She goes and files it down a little, and it's all good. Ethnicities are mixing now, so there's degeneration, and it didn't used to be like that."

Jedlica has sounded off on his female counterpart before.

In a previous interview with HuffPost Weird, he said Lukyanova is "beautiful," but "it appears to me that much of her look is added makeup, fake hair and 'slimming' corsets ... Drag queens have put on the same illusions with makeup and costumes for years."

At the time of the interview nearly two years ago, Jedlica said he'd had around 90 surgeries to get the "muscular" body and chiseled face he has today. He's been injected with silicone all over his body and has had several nose jobs. He's shelled out more than $100,000 to get his desired look.
