Man on TikTok criticized for wearing black face to mock Little Mermaid

Posted on


Joss Marchell was slammed by the internet after he posted a video of himself wearing a black face to mock the reaction to Halle Bailey as Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

As if the whole racism debate surrounding Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid wasn’t ridiculous enough, one Indonesian TikTok user waded through and thought it would be funny to blackface amid controversy.

In the hurtful clip, the man sits in front of the TV with his back to us, while above it reads, “My daughter’s reaction to the little mermaid trailer.”


When Ariel, played by Halle Bailey appears on the screen, the man turns to the camera with his face plastered like a black mask. He then shouted, “Mom! He looks just like me!” before putting on the red wig.

However, as of the time this article was published, the account has been returned but the racist video has been deleted.

While it is sad that he chose to enter the Little Mermαid discussion in the most despicable way imaginable, it is perhaps not surprising given that racism, while not often discussed in Indonesia, remains a problem in this country.

Check out the video screenshot, below:
