In the now-deleted post, the star wrote, "Just seen the new little mermaid with my kids, and while I think Halle gives a good performance and it's great casting, 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." Faith added, "Wtf is this shit. Not what I want to be teaching next gen women at all."
