Complex's legacy

Alex Galbraith, what are you doing?

The Chloe X Halle star's casting in the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid caused at least one troll to go viral with a video of herself chucking a copy of the original film in the trash. The user got dunked into oblivion, with Twitter users tearing into her until the app itself swooped in to suspend her account. 
 I'm preeetty sure there wasn't a video of the troll tossing the film into the trash.  It was just a still from another person's video.  And the still came from an unboxing video:

Listen, Alex Galbraith, if I was your editor (and I'm not) I would ask you to fact-check this article.  You think this is just a fluffy article?  No.  This is Complex's legacy!
