An AI artist is feeling the heat for reportedly fixing the trailer of the animated movie The Little Mermaid.
According to local media outlets, the artist was shown to fix the trailer by editing it into a white woman, and that has left the world furious. The news comes after the trailer went viral recently and had many people disliking it on YouTube.
Now, the internet’s fury has caught up with the artist as they feel it is beyond disgusting and racist to commit such a crime in the public eye in modern times.
Actor Halle Bailey was replaced, and another fair-skinned young woman was added instead. And that has left a bad image in many people’s minds.
Social media was abuzz with the news that many felt was horrifying, to say the least, and then to have the guts to call it fixed was just mindblowing to some.
As you can imagine, the news went viral in seconds. As it is, many were not happy with Halle Bailey being the face of Ariel in the animated and much-anticipated movie, and then eliminating her completely is just a little too much for viewers to handle.
While it’s true that the trailer got nearly 1.5 million dislikes in such a short time, people were not happy with how the scientist thought altering the lead character’s skin color would make things so much better.
The user from Twitter had his account suspended after a fiery backlash followed. He shared a side-by-side
image of the trailer showing the before and after and how there was a huge change in the lead’s skin color.
“He turned the woke actor into a ginger white girl. There is nothing wrong with that. He says he fixed it”- mentioned another user who spoke on the actor’s behalf after his account was suspended.
But that just made the matter so much tenser. What do you think?
