HOLLYWOOD- Singer Donald Glover has come in support of actress Halle Bailey who is facing severe criticism on social media on being cast as Ariel in The Little Mermaid.

Critics maintained that the character should be white and red-headed like the 1989 animated character.

Defending Bailey, Glover said, “I just hope that she’s like having fun and don’t let anybody make you feel the opposite of how you want to feel. It’s a very special role and you earned it, so I hope you’re listening.”
