Halle Bailey has responded to the controversy surrounding her casting in the live-action “Little Mermaid” film.

“I feel like I’m dreaming, and I’m just grateful,” she told a reporter at Tuesday night’s Variety Power of Young Hollywood event. “I don’t pay attention to the negativity. I just feel like this role was something bigger than me and greater, and it’s going to be beautiful.”

Recall that #NotMyAriel trended on Twitter after news of the casting surfaced, with many angry white people asserting that the story had Danish roots and so the character should be pale-skinned and red-haired. They couldn’t conceive an imagined world where a mermaid can be black.

Well, Halle is not letting all that anger distract her.
