Tagging the right star in an appreciation post is all in the detail.
Case in point? When a fan accidentally tweeted a Halle berry about their excitement over Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of The little Mermaid, the 55-year-old Academy Award winner made it hilariously clear that it wasn’t her which will beautify the screen, but singer Halle Bailey, 21 instead.
On December 27, the Twitter user tagged Berry and wrote: “Can’t wait to see you under the sea”, along with a mermaid emoji, to which the catwoman the actress replied: “… Halle wrong lol. Can’t wait to see her too!”
While this recent exchange is extraordinarily cute, this actually wouldn’t be the first time fans have mistakenly confused the two Halles. In 2019, Disney announced The little Mermaid remake of the casting lineup, in which Bailey will play Ariel. Immediately following the announcement, Twitter users expressed the need to take a double spin after reading the news.
