Why is this causing such a controversy ?

With all the hype around the new little mermaid I wanted to put my two sense in.

First and foremost with everything going on in the world I don't understand why anyone has time or energy to put that much hate into a movie character. Second, In a year or less who the F*** will care. This is not a life changing thing people. It is a movie that is made for kids... I must add Kids that DO NOT care what color the mermaid is. They are going to see a princess and be delighted to see the moie. So why are adults acting like like this is a big deal???/

I loved the little mermaid animated movie and I am very excited for the live action one as well.
For those who are butt hurt because the "new" Little Mermaid will be African American here is the actual story:

** found on FaceBook***
" Friendly reminder that The Little Mermaid is based on a book by Hans Christian Andersen published in 1837 where "Ariel" has her tongue ripped out in exchange for feet (feet that bleed the entire time she's on land, btw). She comes on land to try to win the prince's love in order to steal part of his soul (mermaids apparently don't have souls, but live for 300 years, so I guess you win some, ya lose some). She fails, and the prince marries someone else. She contemplates murdering him in his bed, but can't bring herself to do it, so she dies/melts into seafoam.

By the way, her skin is green.

There. Now I'VE ruined your childhood, and you can stop complaining about/debating the casting choice of a Disney remake about fish people

Thanks Abby

But in the end the color of Little Mermaid's skin really has ZERO bearing on your life. There are so many other issues to be passionate about that could actually make a difference in the world. 

Halle Bailey is beautiful young lady that I can assume is very talented (only because I have not seen her work). Let this child .. Yes she is a child.. enjoy her her new role.

  1. Amen. I am disgusted by the fact that there are people who are actually spewing so much venom and hate because a lovely and talented young woman who isn't white has been cast in the role. Guess what? It's a fairytale and fairytales are for EVERYONE, not just white people. I'm looking forward to seeing this movie.
