Casting singer Halle Bailey has caused a firestorm of controversy about Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid.
Haters have been up in arms ever since it was announced that Halle Bailey would play Ariel in a live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid. Obviously, they have done so.
Criticism of Disney’s lackluster remakes is nothing new, but this time the outcry is obviously racist due to the casting of a non-white actress as the title character, the mermaid.
There’s no denying that throughout the history of movies, Hollywood has made some dreadful casting decisions. Often, this manifests itself when white performers portray people of color.
Despite YouTube disabling the dislike counter, the data are still available using an extension, with 1.5 million dislikes from irate “fans” of the film.
The Level of Criticism for Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” Is Now Apparent
Rather than a flurry of furious dialogue around race and gender that regurgitates “great replacement” talking points, the worst that youngsters of the 1990s had to endure when watching films like The Lion King 3: Hakuna Matata and The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea was a poorly created animation.
People who are “triggered” by a non-white actress playing a mermaid in a children’s movie are clearly being sucked into propaganda pipelines, and these men need to log off immediately and walk outside.
As soon as a black Little Mermaid was mentioned, a furious backlash erupted. On the other hand, Ariel isn’t the only person of color to appear in our imaginations when we think about aquatic goddesses.
Toxic man-children have not, thankfully, succeeded in controlling every topic of discussion. Some parents are fighting back against the tide of criticism by sharing recordings of their children’s joy at seeing a Disney princess who looks like them.
Halle Bailey’s Skin Is Lightened Using CGI in the Little Mermaid Redo Video
Anyone who thought it would be a good idea to have AI make movies realized they were asking for trouble. All around the web, people have been asking AI systems for random images, and the results are quite terrifying.
For the live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid, somebody chooses to have artificial intelligence change Halle Bailey into a white woman. Above you may watch the video made by artificial intelligence.
Strangely, some viewers have taken offense to the fact that the live-action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid” features a non-white Ariel. Bailey has been getting a lot of support from his fans on Twitter.
Somebody on Twitter doesn’t get that people of many different backgrounds can have red hair. Halle Bailey is stunning in the role of Ariel, and her powerful voice will take The Little Mermaid to new heights.
They have every right to do so, and it’s their artistic freedom to change the characters’ races in movies and TV series if they want to. Why should the color of these made-up characters’ skin be a factor in anything at all?
