The fascination with fairytales and animated fantasy movies is one common thing most kids would share. They tend to find inspiration in their favorite fictional character and despise the antagonists. However, when we grow older, we slowly realize that the antagonists might have been rational too. Recently, a woman had the internet in stitches with her unique perspective on how Ursula in the 1989 Disney movie "The Little Mermaid" was not the villain but the victim. The video shared by her son—who goes by @otakoyakisoba on TikTok—gained over 3 million views.

"Our mom's hot take on 'The Little Mermaid,'" the text overlay read and the mom, fondly referred to as Mama Lulu, explained her point of view. "I don't understand why people don't like Ursula. I agree that she is evil, but still, Ariel signed the contract," she said. The old woman argued that it was Ariel who was blind to the myriad of warning signs before she signed Ursula's contract that promised to transform the mermaid into a human. "The crab warned her. The goldfish (Flounder) warned her. And also, the sexy father warned her. Ursula sang the 'Poor Unfortunate Soul.' But still, she (Ariel) signed the contract," Mama Lulu explained.

The mom thinks Ariel was so silly to sign Ursula's contract just for the sake of "feet and Eric." She added, "He's not even cute," to which her daughter retaliated by saying, "They're in love." However, Mama Lulu was not convinced that signing an evil contract for love made sense. "I don't care. He looks like a toothpaste," she joked. However, the daughter was not ready to give up on Ariel. "Ursula stole her voice and then tried to sabotage her," the daughter argued. The mom, then replied, "I don't care because Ursula is a businesswoman. And that's called interest" and dubbed Ariel a "spoiled brat."

Mama Lulu's daughter tried to explain that Ariel was just a 16-year-old who "didn't know any better" than to sign the contract. The mom gave a savage response by saying, "She doesn't know any better, but they allow her to marry Eric. She got the permission of her father." Mama Lulu then became gloomy about how Ursula was stabbed by the ship in the end and noted, "It hurts me. I feel it as if I'm Ursula." While relating to the antagonist of "The Little Mermaid" movie, Mama Lulu said, "You know, we are only doing business. They cheated us. The moral of the story: Ursula is the victim."

Mama Lulu's "hot take" on the 1989 Disney animated movie went viral and thousands found her perspective relevant. "I thought this as a kid - the contract really broke down everything that would happen and the consequences were in the song. Ursula is evil, but she also gave all the fine print in large font," pointed out @thephenomenot. "Really, it's not Ursula's fault. Ariel didn't read the fine print. She sang her an entire warning song before she signed," chimed in @alexzmarie13. "It's true, Mama's right! We have to be responsible for every choice we make. Not every villain is evil. Sometimes, it's a reflection of the things we did. Cause and effect," explained @angienwoopy03.
