Mena Massoud Deletes His Twitter Following The Little Mermaid Tweet Frenzy

Avatar

Aladdin heartthrob Mena Massoud waved goodbye to Twitter recently, here’s why:

It all started when he shared his two cents on Twitter about the highly anticipated live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.

In response to a tweet predicting that The Little Mermaid would make a splash with a $115 million opening at the US box office, surpassing Aladdin, Mena couldn’t resist chiming in. He said, “Our film was unique in that audiences went to watch it multiple times. It’s the only way we reached the billion-dollar mark with our opening,” Massoud tweeted. His next remark was the one that roused The Little Mermaid fans in defense of the coming film.

Well, that innocent little remark sent waves through the fandom of The Little Mermaid, with fans rising up in defense of their beloved upcoming film. It seems like Mena inadvertently stirred the ocean of passionate fans, but fear not, there were no sea monsters involved. The incident simply led to Mena deciding to vanish from Twitter for a while, perhaps to let the storm calm down.

The online whirlwind surrounding The Little Mermaid reached new levels of intensity, fueled in part by the ongoing debate over Halle Bailey, a talented black actress, taking on the role of Ariel in the upcoming live-action adaptation.
