I have to admit, I am one that LOVES all of the live action remakes that Disney is making. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST was the FIRST that I saw in the theaters. I then saw JUNGLE BOOK, which I loved.

I have yet to see ALADDIN or LION KING, but those are BOTH on my list. I have to say I'm very excited about THE LITTLE MERMAID. I have LOVED Halle Bailey from the R&B duo CHLOE x HALLE for a while now. WHAT A VOICE this girl has (both of them for that matter). I think the soundtrack would be out of this WORLD with her as the lead. But, that's not the story here.

I'm sure you have seen that there has been "outrage" over the new Arial casting of Halle. So, what's the story you ask? Well...the actual story is that there is not outrage. Which is NOT what some people wanted. 

I'm sure you have heard of the saying, "There is no such thing as bad publicity." So, you can imagine the surprise when no one had a problem with Halle being cast as The Little Mermaid. So, what does the media do? They create a problem. Here is what has been revealed and why you shouldn't believe everyhting you see on the internet. 


According to INQUISITR online, reports indicate that the original source of the backlash was a PHONY Twitter account.  And while it got suspended, several other accounts of "dubious origin" continued stoking the flames.

So, don't fall victim ( The Kermit the Frog meme is my favorite of him typing vigorously on the typewriter arguing on line) to the online arguing. Don't get sucked in, because some of it may not be what it seems.
