Disney released the first teaser for its upcoming, live-action take on The Little Mermaid.

Little brown girls were excited about Halle Bailey as The Little Mermaid.

With the positive, there is negative. Here are some posts from folks who are upset that Disney cast a black woman to play a mermaid.

White conservative podcast host, Matt Walsh, says it isn’t “scientific” to have a black mermaid.

Why are some white people so angry? White people have been portraying black, Asian, and indigenous people for years.
