The “Black Ariel” Conspiracy Theory
Halle Bailey was announced last week as the choice for Disney’s live action remake of The Little Mermaid. This announcement was met with a lot of hate and #notmyariel began trending. The interesting part is that most of the negative comments began AFTER media outlets reported that fans were outraged that Ariel was black. It’s almost as if Disney and the media knew that calling people racist for not supporting this casting choice would fuel disappointed fans to speak out and defend themselves. This isn’t the first time this tactic has been used to advertise an upcoming Disney movie. This week we discuss the main conspiracy theories surrounding Disney’s choice to cast a black female lead as Ariel. We explore how cultural appropriation, mob mentality, and blatant racism are potentially being used to control the media we consume and even the political leaders we elect.
