    "Diversifying the cast" that's why the entire cast is brown except the villain, who is white...

      Im not mad its a black actress. Have you seen the pictures of her in costume? The black actress is playing the part in white face makeup. Every part of her black skin that shows is made up white. I don't get why nobody even notices this? Yes she is light skinned, however look at her in ariel costume and in normal makeup. She is a good bit lighter as ariel.

          Pull that shit with Mulan and Jasmine, then we'll see how the "woke" crowd will feel.

              Agreed. Maybe would've use different verbiage to explain my point but they get the point.

                        OMG!!! Y'all got this sooo wrong. Disney didn't choose that girl because they lazy and come up with something new! They chose her because she can PLAY ariel the best! It's so sad how the world base people according skin tone and ethnic group. It doesn't fucking matter. At the end of the day we're all human

                          Apparently Danish culture cannot be "appropriated" because they were never oppressed? Same thing they are doing to Witcher. Polish culture is not good enough, so appropriating it, even though they were oppressed for so long, that's not important cause the most important thing is to sell tickets and merch in the USA... Let's just have all the slavic people either terrorist, criminals, or menial labor workers. Possibly prostitutes. And so many people are just taking it all in

                            Starfire is the character from Teen Titans, I was impressed you knew Doomsday in another one your videos but maybe that was premature.

                              Everything Disney does is a cash grab. The people want to see this flop are not going to buy a ticket, idk where you're getting that from. It's not that hard to see a movie without paying for it. This garbage is not even worth pirating.

                                A character being fictional is not an excuse to fuck that character up. What kind of shitty reasoning is that?

                                  Hollywood has ruined so many hot white fictional characters in this past year and they're not going slow down.

                                    Don’t always agree with you but you’re absolutely right. Taking from their stories only forges more division. They needed to create a new story with a new princess...not black-wash an almost 200 year old story with a white princess. Sad pandering. I’ll just keep rewatching my digital copy of the cartoon.

                                      Wait a sec...... first off the original TLM came out in 1989 - at NO POINT did Ariel’s “Dutch” background was even mentioned or spoken about....... The ORIGIN story of the little mermaid is Dutch but the Disney version, that’s everyone knows HAS NOTHING to do with being Dutch..... in truth the (Disney) Mermaid was actually more of a secret love letter written by one of the writers who was gay and that was his way of expressing his love for the person he loved.... - oooh shocker!!!! (Its 2019 get over it).

                                      Now that being said since the Disney mermaid was INFLUENCED by the Dutch story that means that technically Ariel’s “racial” and “ethnic” background is open to be explored. By 1989 we’ve already seen COUNTLESS of WHITE PRINCESSES from Snow White to Cinderella. Not once has there EVER been a character of color especially in a lead role in a animated film.... The Princess and the Frog was literally the first time we got a BLACK and ONLY Princess and I remember this movie coming under fire for exploring dark elements of voodoo stating that it was too scary for kids..... so even if we have “original” stories there’s ALWAYS going to be some sort of back lash or criticism. In the late 90’s R&B singer Brandy was the FIRST Black Cinderella and NO BODY ..... absolutely NO BODY has ever had an issue and if I’m not mistaken isn’t Cinderella originally French? So if it’s was great to have Brandy play Cinderella why can’t Hailey be Ariel? How is any one really opposed to this in 2019? - We try to tell our beautiful children of color in America that they can be anything they want to be when they grow up..... imagine the influence and inspiration little BLACK AND BROWN girls (and maybe some boys) would have by SEEING ON SCREEN someone who looks like them in a lead role.....

                                      Then you have smart asses online saying stupid shit like: “(white actors name) should play Martin Luther King...... really. MLKJr WAS A REAL LIVING. BREATHING PERSON YOU DIP SHITS, a CARTOON CHARACTER CAN BE ANYTHING OR ANYONE..... Has NO ONE ever heard of the word ADAPTATION?

                                      Lucas I’m really disappointed in you, especially as a person of color your damn self, if your daughter went to the movies, wouldn’t you want her to be inspired? As a father wouldn’t you want to take your child to see a movie where the LEAD was a person of color?

                                      Really really gets me is the “come up with something original” line..... I’m sorry isn’t having a BLACK MERMAID in itself an original concept? When was the LAST black mermaid you seen on screen? Name 3 I’ll wait.....

                                        How about making some new black characters?

                                          The Little Mermaid takes place in Europe, and it was majority white during the time. So having a black Ariel would be inaccurate to the story.

                                              And then you have me I wouldn’t watch it anyway. Black or white because I don’t care about a Mermaid. No offense I just don’t like the little mermaid.

                                                  Ok well we may as well now have a white female play black panther as it has now come to that point of ridiculousness, if you disagree then please take that up with Disney as they say their just fictional characters so get over it. PS. Wakanda has now also moved to Scandinavia as it’s also a fictional country, so get over it again

                                                      I think it would be pretty cool if they made a movie about a girl in the tribal settings of ancient Africa.

                                                            Mermaids aren’t real. Stay mad about her being black instead of white. Her ethnicity has nothing to do with the story line. And she was probably just the best person at the audition. You get angry over everything. You call society lost because lgbt people are getting rights and the little mermaid is black.

                                                                And another thing. Disney owns these characters not any of you basic YouTubers and small commenting people. If they want to change something they have that right. Y'all didn't make up the little mermiad story. Y'all didn't cry about the wizard of oz being remade into the wiz. Y'all are all for it. Once again this is a live screen production not a cartoon. If Y'all wamt aerial white fight for Sebastian being a red crab not a human and flonder being a blue and yellow fish not a human.

Little White woman need to step up their acting game. This is not a cartoon its a re make live movie. Like I told all you other YouTube casters. If you want to keep Ariel white make sure Sebastian is a red crab too. And Ursula was purple. No humans since that's your argument about the color of mermaid. Y'all are simple people.

                                                                      All that liberal brain washing in school.

                                                                                  I don't think that this issue is that deep. I just don't like it when they change the look of our favorite cartoon/marvel characters etc. and I really hate it when they change the story. Example Spiderman should always be with Maryjane and no one else. Why do movie writers and producers always have to meddle with tradition. If I grew up with something/someone being a certain way, I want it to stay that way. Would they ever make Pocahontas white-never. And don't say it is because she was real, because they even have a black Jesus, when Jesus was a Jew. If they want to better represent other races in fiction, create them. There are plenty of real heroes and heroines of other races to model them after.
