Viewers across the world have rejected the new released Disney live-action remake, The Little Mermaid.

Over 1.5 million YouTube followers dislikes the new movie ever since the casting of singer Halle Bailey was announced.

The film’s trailer has been flooded with 1.5 million dislikes from angry “fans” – despite YouTube removing the dislike counter, the numbers are still available through an extension.

Comment sections have exploded with absurd talking points, defending the sanctity of the original Danish story (which Disney’s original animated adaptation sanitized almost beyond recognition).

A fan @AnaMatruska wrote “True, but I mean they do kinda have a point.

How would you feel if a white man played Frozone or if Numbuh Five from KND and Tiana were both played by a white woman?

I’m sure the entire Twitter would blow up in a very similar fashion”

@Rev Magdalen wrote “Disagree. It’s a radical feminist story about why you shouldn’t let noblemen beguile you into leaving a wholesome nature-based life to go be a courtesan who has to wear painful shoes and then gets tossed aside for the next new thing. But yes, she dies at the end.”
