Parents are posting TikToks of their Black daughters getting excited about Halle Bailey in 'The Little Mermaid' trailer

The touching responses came after a slew of backlash directed at Bailey and Disney for casting a Black lead.

I think that anyone that complained about this casting really needs to write me a formal explanation on why they thought it was okay for the crab to be Jamaican on the other Disney version.

Also an explanation as to why they're cool with being associated with the works of Hand Christian Anderson.

Sebastian the crab was a brand new character. There’s no problem with creating new characters of any race.

I’m not sure what you mean by the Hans Christian Anderson reference.

Yeah, but the complainers argument is that the little mermaid is a Danish story set in a vaguely Danish worldview and that therefore it's inappropriate for a black person to play any role in that story. That is the argument made against a black mermaid, not mine, not anything I agree with it's just what they're saying. So from that frame of reference, either a Jamaican crab is also a problem and therefore they shouldn't have expected anything but problems from this version OR they're just trying to pitch a fit in general.

And Hans Christian Anderson was just... An objectively Hysterical bitch. Like The Little Mermaid was written and sent to a sent to a man that Anderson was intensely romantically attracted to that... Didn't know that Anderson was attracted to him. Like at all. And he sent it on his wedding night.

And that's not just a one off. He wrote Charles Dickens until

Charles broke down and let Anderson move into his house for 5 weeks like... Invited but under duress. And it all culminated in Anderson throwing a crying tantrum on Dickens' lawn. He wrote the ugly duckling... About himself. Like I do have active concerns about some of the morals of these stories because not only was Anderson just completely emotionally unregulated, but most of the time he was morally and ethically wrong and pitching a bitch fit about it.

I agree, if you want to make the case that the whole takes place in Denmark, then a Jamaican crab doesn’t make sense either.

I think people are cool with Hans Christian Anderson because very few people know his life story and even if they did, there would be extremely few people in that group who would complain about it.

What would the complaint be? Hans was gay, therefore I refuse to watch the Little Mermaid. I doubt anybody would say that.

The complaint is generally not that Hans was gay (like at most he was bi, and some people even think that he was asexual) but that all almost his stories are attempts to further mentally abuse his victims, it's just that he was so off the ranch that they didn't understand what was going on. Anne basically of that's where the story is coming from, do we want him teaching morals to anyone?

Like I agree very few people know a lot about him, but the ones that do... Yowza! Guy was bonkers.

It’s the people you vote with that have these issues. You should be proud, CINO! And f*cl you.

I have strong opinions on this issue my main one being we obviously shouldn't be supporting live action remakes of Disney movies (even non live action) ever and the casting was just for attention and it worked, and if they really cared about representation, original stories or something along the lines would be much better than recasting *thumbs up*

Like it's sad so many people fell for this and believe Disney is like good at representation or something and have good intentions when it's just cash grabbing. Like maybe ur toddlers shouldn't be watching Disney trash anyways :|

This is made up. Media cultivation as a creative process in society is really just half snippets of conversations that we’re expected to fill in the blanks with. Modern ideas of media is kitsch and meaningless. The idea that an idea is cultural is false. We’re entirely detached from substance and it’s a huge f*cking problem.

So what, you got some age appropriate Dane that can act sing and probably dance as well as the person that got the job just chilling in your back pocket? Or are you just some button dicked inbred crying over a children's movie because he can't bring himself to mourn his own inability to enjoy things because he feels entitled dominate a culture he never contributed to? Either way pound fxcking sand nobody needs your nostalgia for an age that never existed.
