LaShaunda Vandiver started this petition to Walt Disney and

Disney, in the spirit of fairness and inclusivity, selected the star they felt best embodied the youthful spirit and vocal talent to play the beloved character Ariel. Sadly, because the starlet they chose is African American many racist individuals have chosen to bash her and seek to have her replaced. This racist harassment of a teenager is vile, hateful and every adult of good will should reject it. This petition seeks to ask Disney to craft a press release rejecting this hate speech & affirming their excellent choice in Halle Bailey.

This is a dream come true for Halle and many Disney fans the world over young and old alike. Representation matters and it is amazing to see an African American singer and actress selected to bring Ariel to the screen in a live action movie. This is history in the making and we want to make sure Halle is well supported as she prepares to take on this iconic role.

We all have the right to disagree and hold differing opinions about movie casting but bullying a teenager who was chosen to play a character in a movie because she is not white should not be tolerated. It’s is inexcusable. It is hate speech. Disney should call out the racist bullying & wholeheartedly reject it.
