On-Set Scandal Could Jepordise Grande’s Future Roles

Currently, Grande is in hot water for drama regarding an affair between her and her Wicked cast member, Ethan Slater. According to sources, Slater left his wife and 1-year-old baby for Grande. Fans are now calling Grande a “homewrecker” and blame her for engaging in an inappropriate relationship.

Earlier this summer, Sean Bailey, the President of Walt Disney Studios, confirmed that a live-action version of the film Hercules is in development.

Fans Bombard Disney With Threats Over Grande’s Casting Rumors

When it was revealed that Ariana Grande was being eyed for the role of Meg alongside Taron Egerton, who is being considered for live action Hercules, fans had a less-than-positive reaction. Fans flooded the comment section of one post with loads of criticism over Ariana’s casting in this Disney movie.

Another fan simply says;

“She needs to stay far away from him.”

This much negative backlash surrounding a casting rumor is not a good sign for Disney. With all of the recent controversy regarding live action remake castings, it is clear that Disney may want to take a step back and review some more choices before revealing anything on this.
