Mena Massoud deletes his Twitter account after backlash over ‘The Little Mermaid’ criticism
The Royal Treatment actor revealed details about his 2019 movie Aladdin and discussed Disney’s forthcoming picture The Little Mermaid on Saturday, May 13, 2023.
“Our film was unique in that audiences went to watch it multiple times,” Massoud wrote on Twitter. It’s the sole reason our opening brought in a billion dollars. Though I predict TLM won’t surpass the billion dollar mark, a sequel is unavoidable.
How did the netizens react to Mena Massoud’s tweet?
Mena’s comments about the movie The Little Mermaid upset many Disney enthusiasts, and they filled his Twitter page with numerous messages. On Twitter and Instagram, among other social media sites, users attacked him.
I absolutely adored Aladdin, and it ranks among my top five favourite Disney remakes, a user remarked. It is disheartening to be negative about a film that hasn’t yet been released but has received positive reviews. I’m really angry with you.
“Sir you’re being bitter cuz the movie is doing way better than Aladdin despite it not even being out yet,” wrote one user on social media. Another person said, “Mena Massoud is being bitter and racist because Little Mermaid is thought to be the best Disney live action film even though it hasn’t been officially released, and Aladdin’s will not be getting a sequel after all.”
A few admirers also spoke up to support the actor. Someone wrote, “Y’all are so dramatic!!!!” He simply expressed an opinion; why can’t he do that more often? Someone else chimed in, “Leave @menamassoud alone!! If you disagree with his views, stop reading and unfollow him! He is no longer bothered by flies.
Due to the overwhelming response, Mena cancelled his Twitter account a few hours later. The Little Mermaid, a new Disney movie, is scheduled to arrive in theatres on May 26.
