While Bailey has shared that she’s thrilled about the role, people wondered if she’d heard the criticisms from the naysayers.

As you’ve probably already heard by now, one of the biggest stories last week was the news that 19-year-old singer and actress Halle Bailey has been cast as Ariel in a live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.
