    Kinda surprised they went with McCarthy considering Lizzo wanted the role. Can McCarthy sing?

    Same and it's not just concern over her singing ability, I just can't stand her.

    I don't watch movies she's in, I turn them off if she ends up on screen for any reason. Same with the blonde Australian girl that sings.

    I didn't like McCarthy when she arrived on the scene mainly because imo she seemed like she was trying to be a female Chris Farley. And you just can't do that.

    Scrolled for a long time and only ever saw people mocking white people using "NotMyAriel" and no White people using "NotMyAriel". Remarkable how we have the ability to mock, destroy, and shoot down stupid people and ideas without censoring them

    Except for not having red hair (which still annoys me about Zendaya as MJ) this girl does look just like Ariel though.

    Unless they're doing book Ariel, the mermaid in the book was green.

    I never understood why they have to touch established characters instead of just creating new characters if its a race thing. I think tons of people would be outraged if something like Black Panther, was changed to all white people? Or how the Dr. Strange ancient one was a white woman, people raged about it. So what makes this okay? Or any of the other examples of changing established characters (Heromione, Fantastic Four, etc.)

    It's a fucking mermaid. What god damn race is it supposed to be? IE, why does it fucking matter. Niggas bitchin about MJ, okay fine since she was always previously visually portrayed as such. But, again, it's a fucking mermaid. A full fictional character of a fully fictional species. At the end of the day, racists on all sides gonna be racists.

    Ok but being an African King is literally an unshakable part of T'Challa's character the same way being a white kid who was lost in a hidden martial arts city is part of Iron Fist's and having pale skin was Snow White's. There are characters for whom race is an immutable, intrinsic aspect of their history and the Little Mermaid is not one of them. If they called it The Little Mermaid and were like "surprise! Ariel is a centaur now" there'd be an issue but the color of a fish person's skin is unlikely to make any difference to their character.
