We’ve heard how the world feels about Halle Bailey being casted as Ariel, now we get to hear from our Little Mermaid.

As you should already know, ½ of the group Chloe x Halle, Halle Bailey was casted as Ariel in the live-action remake of the classic flim, The Little Mermaid.

When news broke that Halle would be playing Ariel, many began to criticize the casting- even started a #NotMyAriel hashtag.

The actress/ singer is not bothered by the hate, as she told Variety, “I feel like I’m dreaming,” she said. “I’m just grateful and I don’t pay attention to the negativity. I just feel like this role is something bigger than me and greater and it’s going to be beautiful. I’m just so excited to be a part of it.”

This is the first time Halle has publicly addressed the hateful and hurtful comments.
