However, it seems like not everybody is applauding Bailey’s place in the cast. Her casting as Ariel in Little Mermaid has generated a negative response and some highly racist comments. Many fans have argued that Ariel should have the red hair and the pale skin that she has in the cartoon. In fact, many have totally rejected Hailey Bailey as the upcoming Ariel. Fans are criticizing Disney for ruining childhood memories by disrupting things in Little Mermaid.
No matter what the situation might, many celebrities including Zendaya who was previously tipped for the role are happy at Hailey making the mark. Let’s see how things go with Disney’s upcoming adaptation.
