How does someone in water with no sunlight tan ( have dark skin)?? Evolution dictates Ariel should be albino. This woke stuff make movies unwatchable.

I don't like the woke stuff either but to be fair UVA and UVB are not well absorbed by pure water. Some fish can even get skin cancer. Albinism only happens if Ariel's kind live inside caves and never go out, but then she wouldn't have eyes.

The West puts out there that they're inclusive and open to get people around the world to like them. Wokeism is what's naturally going to happen when they're in actually exclusive and closed. The Republicans brag using it to claim why the world wants to live in the US. They certainly want the rewards but they don't actually do the deed. Just like they hide behind democracy and beat the world on their heads with it but at the same time they're working to deny a vote to minorities. They don't like wokeism but that's what they sold to the world what the US is about.

"The Environment Has Gotten Worse": TV & Film Industry Sputters As Cost Cutting And Layoffs Take Hold​

First it was the streaming studio shift that shook up Hollywood - companies like Netflix were beating out movie theaters and traditional studios publishing content that went direct to streaming. Now, Hollywood is getting shaken up again - this time, because layoffs are on their way.

The struggling TV and film industry continues to run face first into bad news. This week it was reported that Warner Bros. Discovery was firing 100 TV ad salespeople at the same time that Paramount has considered ending offering Showtime as a standalone service,

Netflix followed suit with their own layoffs, the report says. The company has reportedly let go hundreds of employees and abandoned some of its office space. At the same time, the firm's stock price has collapsed and fallen more than 60% from its all time highs.

Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Officer Bob Chapek said in a recent interview with Bloomberg: “The very foundation that the streaming business sits on has been devolving on sand. It’s all been shifting.”

Streaming companies are having trouble getting projects off the ground, a headwind that CEOs like Chapek, who promised profitability and a cut of spending by 2024 for Disney+, have been faced with. Warner Bros. is no longer approving HBO Max project budgets that are more than $30 to $40 million.

Bill Mechanic, a former head of Fox Filmed Entertainment said: “Nobody wants to do anything other than sequels, It’s harder. The environment has gotten worse.”

Sheenie Ambardar, a Los Angeles psychiatrist who has clients in the entertainment field, said: “There is a general sense of uncertainty of when things will pick back up. There’s a general sense of where is this going and how are we going to get out of this?”

Other studios are regularly asking for 20% reductions in budgets and are outright cancelling projects. “Woke,” a Hulu series "about a Black cartoonist", and “Chad,” a TBS series that was set to revolve around a Persian-American family, were both just cancelled, according to the

.

Lower budget products are the first ones to feel the cuts. Chris Fenton, an executive producer, said: “The fear in town is it’s an all-or-nothing game. Either you’re involved in the super-premium category or you’re nervous.”

William Simon, who does executive recruiting for Hollywood put it simply: “Everybody’s pumping the brakes.”

Partial reason is that hollywood is now producing s**t. Look at the quality of Marvel movies before Avangers4, and look at these crap they make now. Only Marvel movie worth watching after Avengers4 is Spiderman No Way Home.
Things like the matrix 4 and top gun 2 are just insults to classics.
