Rather than giving attention to the hate that’s been received, Twitter users have chosen to focus on the positive reactions to the trailer.
“As I stroll on TikTok, I keep seeing parents video their children reaction to ‘The Little Mermaid’ trailer,’” a social media user wrote via Twitter. “So instead of focusing so much on the negative, I thought I’d show a thread of the little Black kids who are excited to see their favorite princess look like them.”
