American Girl retires ethnic dolls, responds to public outcry

After popular doll makers American Girl decided to retire four dolls from its Historical range of dolls, including two ethnic ones from its lineup, criticism and outrage came fast and quick.
With the news that “Cecile” of African-American descent and “Ivy”, who is Asian-American, will join two Caucasian dolls in being discontinued -the company was  forced to defend its decision in a statement, claiming that it was a business decision and it is simply doing away with dolls that come in pairs.
Cecile and Ivy are part of such pairs (see above) 
“Soon, we’ll say farewell to Marie-Grace, Cécile, Ruthie, and Ivy,” the company’s statement to fans read. “Complete your collection while supplies last – quantities are extremely limited’ the statement reads.”
Over 1,100 people commented on the company’s Facebook page after that news. 
“I guess Asians are no longer an important demographic to the American Girl company,” complained one user.
Addy was the first American Girl doll that was black. 
“That would suck if you retire Addy next,” another said. “She is the only African American doll left.”
But hold your horses.  There are actually 11 dolls from the historical range: 5 ethnic ones and 6 Caucasian. 
They cost about $110 each.
What are your thoughts?
