Halle Bailey, who’s been tapped to portray Ariel in the live-action version of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”, addressed the online backlash to role.
She sat down with Teen Vogue where the topic came up during an interview.
Bailey says she’s still very thankful for being cast and she’s balancing the good with the bad when it comes to the internet response.
Bailey told Teen Vogue, “We’ve always learned to just keep our heads up no matter the situation. No matter what anybody has to say about you… just keep pushing.”
