Heidi Klum, Melissa McCarthy & More Stars Who Stunned at 'The Little Mermaid' Premiere

When the casting of singer and actress Halle Bailey as Ariel was announced for Disney‘s live-action remake of the classic fairytale The Little Mermaid, fans of the animated classic lost it. In essence, people complained that Bailey didn’t have the intended “look” from the original 1989 movie. You heard us right – 1989! Let’s just say it like it is; people were racist. Critics online weren’t afraid to air out their prejudice and bully this budding young Black actress in what appeared to be her big break.
