In messages that she later deleted, the British artist commented: “I just saw the new little mermaid with my daughters, and although I think Halle (Bailey) gives a good performance and is a great cast, As a mother of girls I don’t want them to think it’s okay to give up all your voice and powers to love a man.” He then went further, writing: “What the hell is this s***** It’s not at all what I want to be teaching the next generation of women.”
However, shortly after several netizens exposed that Faith’s criticism of the Disney film was in contradiction with a tweet that she herself published in 2009, in which he wrote: “When I grow up I want to be like the little mermaid” (so far the singer has not commented on these comments).
