However, fans have been quick to call her out over her comments, digging up an old tweet of her own about the centuries old fairytale.

While Paloma gave props to Halle for her portrayal of Ariel, the singer said that "as a mother of girls I don't want my kids to think it's ok to give up your entire voice and your powers to love a man."

"Wtf is this s**t. Not what I want to be teaching next gen women at all," she added in her now deleted post on Instagram, via TMZ.

Following her comments, many The Little Mermaid fans proceeded to call her out over them, and even found an old tweet from 2009 of Paloma's in which she stated that "when i grow up i want to be the little mermaid."

@Palomafaith and her fake outrage over "giving up your voice for a man" trash commentary. Just say that you don't like that a Black actress is The Little Mermaid. Your insecurities are showing. https://t.co/t5XbJ5d5ue
