    Why do peopkeep saying one of disneys biggest hits of the year? When technically they lost money on the movie. She wasnt beloved either sone loved her some didnt like her and sone hated her for the wrong reasons. The film just caused more division between people

    1. HATER!! SPEAK FOR YOUR MISERABLE RACIST OR COLORIST SELF!!AND STOP LYING 😡 IT DIDN’T LOSE MONEY!! PLUS HER DOLLS WAS AMAZON BIGGEST SELLER!! SHE’S VERY MUCH BELOVED!!

      1. Apollopitbull

        Ok so technically it made 9 million! Thats it. so definitely not a hit! Far from a blockbuster! Lol

      Are you smoking crack? The movie made over 500 million in the box office. You’re just mad a black actress played the character. I guess it’s ok for you paste buckets to play Asian characters in movies like dragon ball z live action huh? How many movies have white people appropriated? Look up the history and shut up

      1. Tomclay

        It was half that! Have to give money to the theater correct?? It’s a 50/50 spilt also cost $200 million to produce.

      2. J-man

        Production costs for LM were $250 million and marketing was $150 million. Theaters keep 60% of the revenue so Disney needed the movie to gross $560 million to break even. Disney’s net profit was approximately $9 million.

      If you’re going to critique or comment, check grammar. Also, if you’re going to regurgitate someone else information make sure it’s fact. Don’t be ignorant.

      Lmfao you still mad? Cry more

      We loved her because she was an talented R&B artist before that stupid movie was even thought about. People hate her because she accepted a role in a movie but she’s a good person who didn’t do anything to deserve the hate like bun a flag, denounce democracy or rape , kill and hurt people. People are sheep. and so weak minded so they’ll follow any trend… pathetic.

      1. Tomclay

        In 1989 Miss Halle Bailey was not even a twinkle in her Daddies ball sack much less was she a R&B artist.

        The original Disney Little mermaid came out in 1989 she was not born until March 27, 2000 so the Disney movie was 11 years old by the time she was born!

        So no she was not a R&B artist before the thought of a Little mermaid movie was thought of. That’s a fact!

      She’s very beloved. The movie did well despite the intentions of many who disliked her skin color. Congrats!

        People of no color will always have something negative to say about something done out of the norm. The fact that it was a cartoon brought to real life was amazing! The fact that the main character was a woman of color got all the people of no color upset…. so upset that they refused to take their children to see the beloved Ariel in living color.Just goes to show that even though the Jim Crow laws have been banished for decades the prejudices that supported it still exists. So sad

          So you believe that alternating other people’s cultures and stories is okay? As long as it’s not your own culture of stories?

          As a child, My favorite book was “Why do mosquitoes buzz people’s Ears” Awesome African folklore! Loved this as a child and read it to my children who are all adults now.

          I’d be very disappointed if this tale was retold by someone who is not of Black African descent or was played out by people who were not! Even if it’s animals mostly I’d still want that African feel that starts with the people!

          I would never portray an African mermaid as anyone but a black African! Since that’s what the story is about. Yes, there are stories about black mermaids in Africa that were described and depicted as being black and color the same as the people in Africa who told the story.

          I’m sure we agree on the significance of the story of the part of people’s culture and race! Yet why is it okay if we keep the black mermaid as part of the African stories?

          Yet it’s alright to change the ethnicity of a mermaid of another culture? To change a story of folklore to another culture seems to allude to you that you would have a problem if someone changes your history, folklore, culture, and ethnicity!

    8. Katrina

      Really! How?

    9. Hunter

    10. anna

  2. Your Mom

    1. Zoe

    2. Anon

    It’s changing; all ethnicities, all shades!
    Enjoyed the movie and loved all the characters.
    Get over it you horrible Whyte people!

  6. kylie

    If you actually read the article, you’ll be surprised to see that they’re actually announcing Daveed Diggs pregnancy with his partner

  7. Bri

    If you guys read the article in its entirety, the beloved “actor” that’s expecting with their loved one ISN’T Halle. It’s Daveed Diggs, who voices Sebastian in the new remake.

  8. Tammy

    I wish her and her unborn child the best God bless you
    As for her acting and singing she needs to find a different life style

  9. Trish

    Hahaha! Good attention grabber! I loved this movie and the entire cast was phenomenal!!! Ariel was thee best! And so we’re Scuttle and Sebastian!

  10. Jonie

    Disney failed all of us that grew up on original Disney with this one. All this new woke stuff is for the birds snow white is going to flop to. So much disappointment to come from the route Disney is going now. Especially with the strike and them losing most of their rights to everything. walt is probably rolling over in his grave full of disappointment.

    1. Jen

      what do you do lame ass probably still living with your mommy and daddy

  11. BLM

    Kkkrackers hate everything that isn’t white. They are so racist online. But cowards in real life.

  12. Herway1

    She just sold her soul to the enemy, he belittles her, cheat on her, and she gets pregnant. She’s the dumbest, she had it made, kid free. Real talk, I’m totally convinced, she is weak.

  13. Mephime

    And so the hating continues smh… tell me you’re mad and jealous without telling me you’re mad and jealous lol

  14. Angel

    It’s people like this and can’t even spell gtfoh haters she’s everything get over it

  15. Fallon Thomas

    You people are freaking weird!!! Why TF do you have Halle Baileys photo up, but the article is regarding someone else’s pregnancy?? Stop the freaking lying and leave that girl alone. Idiots!!
    If she were pregnant, its nobodies business!!

  16. Hope

    She was beloved now we in the blk community just looking at her like🙄. Threw her career away for an insecure bum🤦🏾‍♀️

  17. Ja

    Why use Halle picture? This isn’t even about her!

  18. Duck

    So first of all, she is an actress not an actor please get your grammar, correct. Secondly, you know her name say her damn name.

  19. Donna

  25. Mrs Mercedes Shoemaker

    Little girls always like to fantasize dream create in their mind exactly what the movie means to them so due to the fact that there is a announcement about her pregnancy is inappropriate.

  26. Diana

  28. Jamie

  30. Lizzy
