It’s official! Singer Halle Bailey has been cast as our new Ariel, and we couldn’t be more excited for her. However, people on the Internet have been mistaking Halle Bailey as Halle Berry all this time. The confusion about the Little Mermaid casting even made Halle Berry’s name trend on Twitter!
Here are some hilarious Tweets about Halle Berry playing Ariel:

I definitely didn’t read that Little Mermaid casting news and have the first reaction of “How are we going to make a 52 year old Halle Berry play a 16 year old.” pic.twitter.com/jf4betFlaA
