Paloma Faith, a British singer, took to her Instagram Stories to express her opinion about Disney’s live-action remake of “The Little Mermaid.” The movie features Halle Bailey as Ariel, a mermaid who falls in love with Prince Eric (Jonah Hauer-King). Faith criticized the film’s message, saying that she does not want her daughters to think that it is okay to give up their voice and powers for a man. She also praised Halle Bailey’s performance and the casting. However, she deleted the post later on.
Fans’ Reactions on Twitter
Faith’s remarks received mixed reactions from fans on Twitter. Some fans questioned whether she had seen the original “Little Mermaid” film, which was released in 1989. They also pointed out that Ariel was not giving up her voice for a man, but rather to become human. Others defended Faith’s opinion and shared the same concern about the film’s message.
Paloma Faith’s Old Tweet
Fans also dug up an old tweet of Faith’s from 2019, where she expressed her desire to become the little mermaid when she grows up. This led to some confusion among fans, who wondered whether Faith had changed her mind about the character’s message.
The Film’s Release
“The Little Mermaid” remake is now in theaters. It is unclear whether Faith’s critique will affect the film’s box office performance. Faith’s representatives have not responded to requests for comment.
