Disney have caved under the pressure to choose a black or a white actress to play the role of Ariel, and have gone with a real mermaid instead.
Disney have been criticised in the past for choosing actors to pretend to be characters that they clearly are not.
Disney Chief Exec, Peter Thape has apologized and said that in the future real lions will play the parts in The Lion King, and not black or white actors.
‘We’re going to use a real mouse to play Mickey Mouse in the future, not even an actor’s voice,’ said Thape.
‘My colleagues at Marvel intend to use a real spider in the next new Spiderman film,’ added Thape.
