BET did a story about all the "racists" who are "big mad" that Ariel is white. They compiled 6 tweets to prove the outrage exists. Two are from anonymous accounts with 10 followers. Two are from non-white people. This is the faux-iest faux-outrage ever.https://t.co/T6mCUVBYvg— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) July 5, 2019
The little mermaid was written as white, was white in the film, is based in Denmark and based on a European fairytale, but is cast as black... How is this not racist and cultural appropriation? If this were the other way round, those celebrating would be boycotting. #Ariel #Halle— Rhys (@Rhys98983932) July 3, 2019
I want Ariel to be white ..... no hate to my skin or nth...— AB💙 (@DeeniBaleeni) July 3, 2019
But that's how ive seen her since I was born.. white girl, red hair green tail...
☺this must be a joke!
as a black girl i must say im very confused as to why a black girl is playing a ariel. if it were a white person playing a poc character it would be whitewashing, why not just have a white person play a white character— Rocky⚔️ (@SEXYCULT) July 3, 2019
