People are coming with weird theories to prove mermaid can not be black

Individuals are trying really hard to justify why Ariel from The Little Mermaid should be played by a white actress.

This comes after a declaration that singer and actress Halle Bailey, who is of African American, has won the role, with numerous arguing that the mythological fish-person should remain “authentic” to the original aesthetic – that is a white mermaid with red hair.

Truly, as indicated by science, mermaids are white since they live submerged and have less melanin, which means a lighter skin shading.

One Twitter user wrote: My opinion on why mermaids are white is that they live so deep underwater that sunlight hardly reaches them, thus the lack of melanin. It doesn’t matter what ocean they’re from cos they could’ve been migrating seasonally like fishes. But maybe im thinking too much.

Other gave some new theory

Another come with a proper social theory

A student of medicine cleared up the details about melanin production.

What do you think?
